“Ares”
Dantero's Ares FRIII NADF1 CSAU PSA1

Belgian Shepherd

“Ares runs in the mid 70's with solid bone and structure. High drives across the board (prey, hunt, toy, food, etc), full grips, brings aggression to the work, socially neutral to social, environmentally stable. High pack drive. Possessive of objects yet with a high desire to interact. Ie brings it back, slams it into me, wants to play, but isn't wild about letting go. Ares is highly intelligent, by 5 months he had the basic concept of the entire FRIII program, except the jumps. Currently in PSA”

Clinical Traits

These clinical traits are valuable to your veterinarian and can inform the clinical decisions and diagnoses they make.

Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) Activity result: Low Normal

Dantero's Ares has one copy of a mutation associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Dantero's Ares has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Dantero's Ares is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Dantero's Ares’s ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

Genetic Health Conditions

A genetic health condition indicates a genetic mutation that increases the risk that an animal develops a specific disease.

Not At Risk

Good news! Ares did not test positive for any of the genetic diseases that Embark screens for.

It is still important to let your veterinarian know these results because they could help guide Ares’s diagnosis and treatment if he gets sick in the future.

Not A Carrier

Good news! Ares is not a carrier for any of the genetic diseases that Embark tests for.

Common Conditions

Good news! Ares tested clear for 4 genetic conditions that are common in his breed.

Maternal Haplotype

Paternal Haplotype

Through Ares’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.

C1

Dantero's Ares’s Haplogroup

Congratulations, C1 is a very exotic female lineage! It is more closely associated with maternal lineages found in wolves, foxes and jackals than with other dog lineages. So it seems dogs in this group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf! This is not a common lineage in any breed, though a good number of German Shepherds and Doberman Pinchers are C1. It is also found in breeds as diverse as Peruvian Inca Orchids and Pekingese; it is rarely found amongst Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies, Siberian Huskies, or Cocker Spaniels. Despite its fascinating origins, it is widely distributed around the globe, and even shows up frequently among Peruvian village dogs. It almost certainly survived at low frequency in Europe for millennia and then was dispersed outside of Europe by colonialism, though not as successfully as some other lineages.

C1

Dantero's Ares’s Haplotype

Part of the C1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs commonly in village dogs in Peru, and has also been spotted in South America, the Middle East, and through South Asia into Fiji. The breeds that show this haplotype most frequently are the Yorkshire Terriers, Peruvian Inca Orchids, and West Highland white Terriers.

The C1 maternal line is commonly found in Jackals.

A1b

Dantero's Ares’s Haplogroup

For most of dog history, this haplogroup was probably quite rare. However, a couple hundred years ago it seems to have found its way into a prized male guard dog in Europe who had many offspring, including the ancestors of many European guard breeds such as Doberman Pinchers, St. Bernards, and Great Danes. Despite being rare, many of the most imposing dogs on Earth have it; strangely, so do many Pomeranians! Perhaps this explains why some Poms are so tough, acting like they're ten times their actual size! This lineage is most commonly found in working dogs, in particular guard dogs. With origins in Europe, it spread widely across other regions as Europeans took their dogs across the world.

Ha.4

Dantero's Ares’s Haplotype

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this haplotype is found in village dogs in North America and Africa. As for breeds, it occurs most frequently in Miniature Pinscher, Great Dane, and Poodle.

Great Danes and Pomeranians have this in common!
