“Bubba is a puppy mill rescue. He's very sensitive, and very loving. He loves doing zoomies and rolling around in the grass (roly pollies). He has strong opinions and isn't afraid to talk about it! It sounds like whining but its talking. He's my emotional support dog, and I'm his emotional support hooman. He came home to me on May 10th, 2019 and was born February 19th, 2019. He's the light of my life, my baby boy and my only child. - Bubbys Mommy, Miranda.”

Through Bubba Looo’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

B1

Bubba Looo’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B92/93

Bubba Looo’s Haplotype

Part of the B1 haplogroup, the B92/93 haplotype occurs most commonly in Doberman Pinschers, West Highland White Terriers and American Pit Bull Terriers.

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

A1a

Bubba Looo’s Haplogroup

Some of the wolves that became the original dogs in Central Asia around 15,000 years ago came from this long and distinguished line of male dogs. After domestication, they followed their humans from Asia to Europe and then didn't stop there. They took root in Europe, eventually becoming the dogs that founded the Vizsla breed 1,000 years ago. The Vizsla is a Central European hunting dog, and all male Vizslas descend from this line. During the Age of Exploration, like their owners, these pooches went by the philosophy, "Have sail, will travel!" From the windy plains of Patagonia to the snug and homey towns of the American Midwest, the beaches of a Pacific paradise, and the broad expanse of the Australian outback, these dogs followed their masters to the outposts of empires. Whether through good fortune or superior genetics, dogs from the A1a lineage traveled the globe and took root across the world. Now you find village dogs from this line frolicking on Polynesian beaches, hanging out in villages across the Americas, and scavenging throughout Old World settlements. You can also find this "prince of patrilineages" in breeds as different as German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Pugs, Border Collies, Scottish Terriers, and Irish Wolfhounds. No male wolf line has been as successful as the A1a line!

H1a.8/32/44

Bubba Looo’s Haplotype

Part of the A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in mixed-breed dogs.
