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

Border Collie Border Collie
Border Collies are highly energetic and work-oriented herding dogs, whose stamina is matched by their intelligence and alertness. While they excel at the herding they were bred for, many Border Collies also enjoy flyball, obedience, and other canine sports. As long as they have a job to do and are physically and mentally stimulated, Border Collies can make excellent companions for the right owners.

Whippet 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.

Health Summary

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

And one variant that you should tell your vet about.

Collie Eye Anomaly

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

This result does not impact your dog’s health. It could have consequences for siblings or other family members, and you should let them know if you are in contact with them. This result is also important if you decide to breed this dog - to produce the healthiest puppies we recommend genetic testing any potential mates for this condition.

What is Collie Eye Anomaly?

Named for its high prevalence in Collie dogs, Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA) is more correctly termed choroidal hypoplasia. The choroid anchors the retina to the underlying structures and supplies it with oxygen and nourishment. CEA is a developmental disease of the choroid.


ALT Activity

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly inherited both copies of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly has two copies of a variant in the GPT gene and is likely to have a lower than average baseline ALT activity. ALT is a commonly used measure of liver health on routine veterinary blood chemistry panels. As such, your veterinarian may want to watch for changes in Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly's ALT activity above their current, healthy, ALT activity. As an increase above Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s baseline ALT activity could be evidence of liver damage, even if it is within normal limits by standard ALT reference ranges.

What is ALT Activity?

Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is a clinical tool that can be used by veterinarians to better monitor liver health. This result is not associated with liver disease. ALT is one of several values veterinarians measure on routine blood work to evaluate the liver. It is a naturally occurring enzyme located in liver cells that helps break down protein. When the liver is damaged or inflamed, ALT is released into the bloodstream.

Through Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

A1d

Haplotype

A11a/419

Map

A1d

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’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.

A11a/419

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s Haplotype

Part of the A1d haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Yorkshire Terriers, Old English Sheepdogs, and Miniature Schnauzers.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

Through Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplogroup

A2b

Haplotype

Hc.11

Map

A2b

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s Haplogroup

A2b appears to have split a few times in succession, which means that some of the Central Asian male ancestors of this lineage went their separate ways before their respective Y chromosomes made their rounds. There is not much diversity in this lineage, meaning that it has only begun to take off recently. Two iconic breeds, the Dachshund and Bloodhound, represent this lineage well. Over half of Rottweilers are A2b, as are the majority of Labrador Retrievers and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. While A2a is restricted mostly to East Asia, this paternal line is also found among European breeds.

Hc.11

Livin' Wild's Truth Be Told - Frankly’s Haplotype

Part of the A2b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs primarily in Border Terriers, Whippets, Jack Russell Terriers, and village dogs in the South Pacific and Croatia.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

A2b is found in the Daschund breed.
