“Named after a muppet, Ludo is a confident red tri with one marbled blue/amber eye and one blue eye. He has never met a stranger and loves to train and play. Super cuddly. He is full-panel clear and enrolled in an OFA study! Ludo comes from a long ASDR/NSDR pedigree. He was sired by an elite show champion, Bandana Living Like A Renegade (15-inch red tri with amber/blue eyes). His dam, RCF Beartooth's High Dollar Diesel, is also out of championship lines (12.75-inch blue merle with blue eyes).”

Health Summary

Ludo has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

Ludo inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

Ludo has one copy of a variant associated with reduced ALT activity as measured on veterinary blood chemistry panels. Please inform your veterinarian that Ludo has this genotype, as ALT is often used as an indicator of liver health and Ludo is likely to have a lower than average resting ALT activity. As such, an increase in Ludo’s 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.

C2

Ludo’s Haplogroup

C2 is a very old female lineage found more commonly among English Setters, English Bulldogs, and American Eskimo Dogs. We also see C2 in village dogs in South Asia. Rather than having a few characteristic breeds representing this lineage particularly well, it is present in a few uncommon individuals of many different breeds. Unlike some European breed lineages that have seen skyrocketing popularity along the path to the modern dogs we see today, C2 tends to reflect the deep history of man's best friend.

C40

Ludo’s Haplotype

Part of the C2 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in mixed breed dogs.

You can often find his haplogroup in the lovable English Bulldog.

A1a

Ludo’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.2

Ludo’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Yorkshire Terriers, Norfolk Terriers, Silky Terriers, and Norwich Terriers.
