“She doesn't like to bark, extremely picky about her treats, she don't like peanut butter and can be timid. She doesn't seek attention from people other than who she knows and loves.

Enjoys other dogs and going on car rides anywhere and everywhere. She travels well. Weighs 46 lbs.”

A5

Coasta’s Haplogroup

A5 is a rare maternal lineage. It is most numerous among the village dogs of Vietnam, though it is also present in the Chow Chow breed. Additionally, it is found in the Carolina Dog, and attests to this population’s origins among the indigenous native dog.

A206

Coasta’s Haplotype

Part of the A5 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Chow Chows and Xoloitzcuintlis.

The Chow Chow is a carrier of the rare A5 haplogroup.

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