“CJ”
Fast Forward du Dantero HRDII HTAD1 HTD1 PT HCT

Belgian Shepherd

“CJ is a medium/small adult, 46lbs last time she was at the vets. She has high drives, full/forward grips, compact/muscular build and reminds me a lot of her grandma Chaos. Hence the name Chaos Junior. Very social with people and good with other dogs. High pack drive. Possessive, but not excessively so. Excellent hunt drive, she won't stop until she finds it.”

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

Fast Forward du Dantero has one copy of a mutation associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Fast Forward du Dantero has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Fast Forward du Dantero is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Fast Forward du Dantero’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! CJ 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 CJ’s diagnosis and treatment if she gets sick in the future.

Not A Carrier

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

Common Conditions

Good news! CJ tested clear for 4 genetic conditions that are common in her breed.

Maternal Haplotype

Paternal Haplotype

Through CJ’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

B1

Fast Forward du Dantero’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B95

Fast Forward du Dantero’s Haplotype

Part of the B1 haplogroup, we see this haplotype most frequently in mixed breed dogs.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

Paternal Haplotype

This 'Paternal Haplotype' tab is for deep ancestral lineage going back thousands of years.

For recent ancestry—"What breeds did my dog inherit from her mom and dad?"—please refer to the Breed, Family Tree, or Summary tab.

The Paternal Haplotype refers to a dog’s deep ancestral lineage stretching back thousands of years, before there were any distinct breeds of dog. We determine the Paternal Haplotype 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 CJ is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
