“Luna Blue has beautiful, piercing blue eyes that capture your heart. We thought we purchased a Golden Retriever/Siberian Husky mix or Goberian from Quebec, Canada but Embark set us straight. She is a loving, high energy Siberian husky mix who is happiest hanging out with the family doing what ever you are doing or playing with other dogs. She is a fun thief, will play fetch 24/7 and wants to have the "zoomies" before bed. She is very social with all humans and other dogs. She is very smart!!!”

Siberian Husky

Bred initially in Northern Siberia, the Siberian Husky is a medium-sized working dog who is quick and light on their feet. Their moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest their Northern heritage. Huskies are very active and energetic and are known for being long distance sled dogs.

Alaskan-type Husky

Health Summary

warn icon

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

ALT Activity

warn icon

Luna Blue inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

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