“She's extremely loyal and very, véry affectionate. She is very obedient (only to me though). She is extremely intelligent, learns very fast and she is highly curious; her curiosity is stronger then her flight instinct. She's my best friend. Her wolf content is 27% (I asked though email).”

Through Ishtar (Estrella v.d. Scheldeschorre)’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.







Ishtar (Estrella v.d. Scheldeschorre)’s Haplogroup

Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.


Ishtar (Estrella v.d. Scheldeschorre)’s Haplotype

The E haplogroup in general is not common. It has been found in dogs with some level of background mixing with its wolf-like ancestors.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

An example of an Akita.

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 Ishtar (Estrella v.d. Scheldeschorre) is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
