“My boyfriend Luke and I adopted Carmen in July 2020 from the WI Humane Society Milwaukee Campus. She was one of 3 dogs that came to the shelter from the south. All of her family was adopted and she was the last one! Carmen was very fearful of people and new experiences and it took her several months to warm up. A year and a half later she has become way more social and has so much energy! She loves running, being outside in the snow, and going to the dog park. :)”

D

Carmen’s Haplogroup

D is a rare maternal line, which may be the result of an ancient dog breeding with another canid, possibly a wolf. It is found in Afghan Hounds and Scandinavian dog breeds.

D7

Carmen’s Haplotype

Part of the D haplogroup, the D7 haplotype occurs most commonly in Norwegian Elkhounds. It's a rare find!

The Paternal Haplotype reveals a dog’s deep ancestral lineage, stretching back thousands of years to the original domestication of dogs.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Carmen inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

Paternal Haplotype is determined by looking at a dog’s Y-chromosome—but not all dogs have Y-chromosomes!

Why can’t we show Paternal Haplotype results for female dogs?

All dogs have two sex chromosomes. Female dogs have two X-chromosomes (XX) and male dogs have one X-chromosome and one Y-chromosome (XY). When having offspring, female (XX) dogs always pass an X-chromosome to their puppy. Male (XY) dogs can pass either an X or a Y-chromosome—if the puppy receives an X-chromosome from its father then it will be a female (XX) puppy and if it receives a Y-chromosome then it will be a male (XY) puppy. As you can see, Y-chromosomes are passed down from a male dog only to its male offspring.

Since Carmen is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
