Serenity's Gypsy Rae

Poodle (Standard)

“Gypsy just completed phase two of training to become a facilities dog. She will be accompanying her human mom in the classroom so that she can listen to third graders as they eagerly read to her each month. She shows eagerness to please, as well as high focus! She is the perfect standard poodle for our family! She will complete AKC Canine Good Citizen in August and certify as a therapy dog through Pet Parnters. She has health tested CLEAR on all genetic panels on the breeder test kit and shows e”

Clinical Traits

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

Alanine Aminotransferase Activity result: Low Normal

Serenity's Gypsy Rae has one copy of a mutation associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Serenity's Gypsy Rae has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Serenity's Gypsy Rae is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Serenity's Gypsy Rae’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! Gypsy did not test positive for any of the genetic conditions that Embark screens for.

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

Not A Carrier

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

Common Conditions

Good news! Gypsy tested clear for 8 genetic conditions that are common in her breed.

B1

Serenity's Gypsy Rae’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.

B88

Serenity's Gypsy Rae’s Haplotype

Part of the B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Poodles.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

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

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