Carolina Dog

The Carolina Dog was originally a landrace, rediscovered as a wild dog by Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin, and originally documented in American dog breed publications in the 1920s. Although descended from free-ranging dogs, Carolina Dogs can make good family pets with proper socialization. Carolina Dogs have been a UKC-recognized breed since 1996 and are now part of the AKC Foundation Stock Service (FSS). While debates rage on about the genetic origins of the breed and whether there are still pockets of feral Carolina dogs living in Southeastern US, AKC and UKC Carolina Dogs clearly have a unique and identifiable genetic signature.

Health Summary

warn icon

Lady Nala Bear BCF has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

warn icon

Lady Nala Bear BCF inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

A1b

Lady Nala Bear BCF’s Haplogroup

This female lineage was very likely one of the original lineages in the wolves that were first domesticated into dogs in Central Asia about 15,000 years ago. Since then, the lineage has been very successful and travelled the globe! Dogs from this group are found in ancient Bronze Age fossils in the Middle East and southern Europe. By the end of the Bronze Age, it became exceedingly common in Europe. These dogs later became many of the dogs that started some of today's most popular breeds, like German Shepherds, Pugs, Whippets, English Sheepdogs and Miniature Schnauzers. During the period of European colonization, the lineage became even more widespread as European dogs followed their owners to far-flung places like South America and Oceania. It's now found in many popular breeds as well as village dogs across the world!

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