Peeve (my pet peeve)

Mixed Breed

“He was a rescue from a local shelter at 7 weeks old from a litter of 4 pups. The shelter said he was a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix but Embark shows he is 60% Doberman Pinscher mix. His ears flip back when he is up to mischief. He is a fierce hunter (groundhogs, squirrels, bluejays, copperheads, bears, etc.). He is extremely active and loves to play but very laid back with people. He is now at ideal weight of 80lbs and very athletic.”

C1

Peeve (my pet peeve)’s Haplogroup

Congratulations, C1 is a very exotic female lineage! It is more closely associated with maternal lineages found in wolves, foxes and jackals than with other dog lineages. So it seems dogs in this group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf! This is not a common lineage in any breed, though a good number of German Shepherds and Doberman Pinchers are C1. It is also found in breeds as diverse as Peruvian Inca Orchids and Pekingese; it is rarely found amongst Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies, Siberian Huskies, or Cocker Spaniels. Despite its fascinating origins, it is widely distributed around the globe, and even shows up frequently among Peruvian village dogs. It almost certainly survived at low frequency in Europe for millennia and then was dispersed outside of Europe by colonialism, though not as successfully as some other lineages.

C25

Peeve (my pet peeve)’s Haplotype

Part of the C1 haplogroup, this haplotype has been spotted in village dogs in Peru and Namibia. Among breeds, it occurs most frequently in Doberman Pinschers, but has also been detected in German Shepherd Dogs and Labrador Retrievers.

Map

A2b

Peeve (my pet peeve)’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.9

Peeve (my pet peeve)’s Haplotype

Part of the A2b haplogroup, this haplotype is found in village dogs spanning South America, Africa, and the South Pacific. Among the 11 breeds we have spotted it in, the most frequent occurrences are in Dachshund, Bloodhound, American Eskimo Dog, and Jack Russell Terrier.

A2b is found in the Daschund breed.
