“Her undercoat is spotted, and has peach fuzz on her tummy. I think she is double jointed, the way she can tuck her feet and sploot. She unfolds when she gets up. She can’t swim because she has no fat. She loves babies-puppies, kittens, fox kits, bobcat kitten… She’s very much a baby. She likes to snuggle with her head on your shoulder, and sleeps between the husband and I.”

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!

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.

Irish Wolfhound

The Irish Wolfhound is about as big as they come. These gentle giants have served as hunting dogs for thousands of years. They make wonderful companions, especially for kids.

Through Jackie’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.

A1d

Jackie’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

Jackie’s Haplotype

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

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

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