Embark Supermutt analysis

What’s in that Supermutt? There may be small amounts of DNA from these distant ancestors:

Greyhound

The Greyhound is a breed unmatched in speed. This ancient dog has been used for hunting and racing, but they make wonderful companions. Surprisingly, this breed is often described as a couch potato!

Whippet

The Whippet is a sighthound breed who can be counted on to speedily go after rabbits and other small game. While adept hunters today, Whippets also compete in agility, flyball, lure coursing, rally, and obedience. They are loving dogs, and their unique nature, friendly personality, and stylish looks make them a favorite as a family companion, as well as in the show ring.

Borzoi

The Borzoi is a large, slender sighthound breed from Russia. Elegant and regal, they have powerful builds that enable them to hunt fast-moving animals like rabbits and foxes. Some of them were even used to hunt wolves in their homeland. Borzoi are affectionate dogs and true canine athletes who love to give chase. Because they’re built for speed, many excel at lure coursing.

A1d

Iggy’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A362

Iggy’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1d haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Greyhounds. It’s a rare find!

A1a

Iggy’s Haplogroup

Some of the wolves that became the original dogs in Central Asia around 15,000 years ago came from this long and distinguished line of male dogs. After domestication, they followed their humans from Asia to Europe and then didn't stop there. They took root in Europe, eventually becoming the dogs that founded the Vizsla breed 1,000 years ago. The Vizsla is a Central European hunting dog, and all male Vizslas descend from this line. During the Age of Exploration, like their owners, these pooches went by the philosophy, "Have sail, will travel!" From the windy plains of Patagonia to the snug and homey towns of the American Midwest, the beaches of a Pacific paradise, and the broad expanse of the Australian outback, these dogs followed their masters to the outposts of empires. Whether through good fortune or superior genetics, dogs from the A1a lineage traveled the globe and took root across the world. Now you find village dogs from this line frolicking on Polynesian beaches, hanging out in villages across the Americas, and scavenging throughout Old World settlements. You can also find this "prince of patrilineages" in breeds as different as German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Pugs, Border Collies, Scottish Terriers, and Irish Wolfhounds. No male wolf line has been as successful as the A1a line!
