Collie (Scottish-Type)

Scottish-Type Collies, also called Old-Time Scotch Collies, are landrace collies bred first and foremost to excel at their work. Formalized breeds such as the Collie and Shetland Sheepdog were developed from this original landrace population. While these dogs are happy to herd, they’re quite versatile and also enjoy sports such as flyball and agility.

Health Summary

danger icon

Effie Mae is at increased risk for one genetic health condition.

Multiple Drug Sensitivity

danger icon

Effie Mae inherited one copy of the variant we tested

How to interpret this result

Effie Mae has one copy of a variant at the ABCB1 gene and is at risk for displaying adverse drug reactions. While she may not be as severely affected as a dog with two copies of the ABCB1 drug sensitivity allele, normal dosages of drugs could still have potentially severe effects on Effie Mae. Please inform your veterinarian that Effie Mae carries this variant; it is essential that they know this information before prescribing drugs.

What is Multiple Drug Sensitivity?

Sensitivity to certain classes of drugs, notably the parasiticide ivermectin, as well as certain gastroprotectant and anti-cancer medications, occurs in dogs with a mutation in the ABCB1 gene.

E

Heritage Effie Mae’s Haplogroup

Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.

E11

Heritage Effie Mae’s Haplotype

The E haplogroup in general is not common. It has been found in dogs with some level of background mixing with its wolf-like ancestors.

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 Effie Mae inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown.

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