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

Boxer Boxer
Developed in Germany, the Boxer is a popular family dog-patient, loyal and smart-requiring lots of exercise and proper training.

American Pit Bull Terrier American Pit Bull Terrier
The American Pit Bull Terrier originated in the British Isles and descends from the Mastiff-type dogs introduced to England in antiquity. The breed was brought over to the United States by English immigrants in the 1800s, and quickly became one of the most popular and widespread breeds there.

German Shepherd Dog German Shepherd Dog
German Shepherds are confident, courageous dogs with a keen sense of smell and notable intelligence.

Bluetick Coonhound Bluetick Coonhound
Bluetick Coonhounds are an American breed of hound that originated in the Southern United States, which is a pretty common story for American breeds, particularly hounds. When European immigrants came to the New World, they set about mixing hound breeds to make the perfect dogs to deal with the new terrain and animals. Bluetick Coonhounds originated in Louisiana and are likely descended from a French breed, the Bleu de Gascogne (essentially a much bigger version of the Bluetick). The English Foxhound also likely contributed to the Bluetick Coonhounds’ ancestry. Bluetick Coonhounds were originally used as hunting dogs, and they primarily worked as coon hounds, hence the name. In fact, it is one breed that even today is rarely kept as a pet. While they can make good house dogs, Bluetick Coonhounds are still mostly hunting dogs and take a decent amount of training from an early age to make good companions for indoor living.

Through Logan’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.

A1a

Logan’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.

A388

Logan’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Staffordshire Terriers, Labrador Retrievers, and English Bulldogs.

A1a

Logan’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!

H1a.6

Logan’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in Labrador Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Leonbergers, and village dogs in Fiji.
