    Pretty independent. Doesn't cuddle a ton but I'm working on her. She's going to get snuggles whether she likes it or not.

“My Emmy Lou is full grown and weighs 44lbs. She's not super into cuddling but every once in awhile I make her. Emmy Lou likes going for a walk by the river, going to doggie daycare, car rides or going to the dog park. Her favorite dog to play with is a German Shepherd that is twice her size but she has no problem holding her own. When she was a puppy, she was a bit of a monster but she has settled down nicely. I sure love having her around.”

A1a

Emmy Lou’s Haplogroup

A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.

A261

Emmy Lou’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in village dogs in Peru. Among breeds, it is most common in Golden Retrievers, Gordon Setters, and Labrador Retrievers.

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

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