“Hooligan is an exuberant and vociferous little IT with enough energy for 3 dogs. She wakes every morning growling playfully & excitedly while spinning on the bed. Her severe kidney dysplasia means her life is fragile & she seems to know it, living every moment to its fullest. She's afraid of nothing & investigates everything! Walking her is an absolute adventure in every way imaginable. She's a most wonderful and perfect soul who keeps us constantly laughing with her crazy & unusual antics.”

A1a

HOOLIGAN’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.

A385

HOOLIGAN’s Haplotype

Part of the A1a haplogroup, the A385 haplotype occurs most commonly in Irish Terriers and Cardigan Welsh Corgis.

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 HOOLIGAN inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

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