Koolie

These are intelligent, cheerful, and loyal dogs who can make a great addition to a family. The Koolie is not an aggressive breed and is usually comfortable with new people or new surroundings. Koolies are eager to be trained but this doesn't necessarily mean they're easy to train. When starting obedience training, find an instructor who understands how herding dogs work and you will wind up with an excellent companion dog.

Health Summary

warn icon

Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

warn icon

Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

Through Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace her mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that her ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Map

A1e

Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh’s Haplogroup

This female lineage likely stems from some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs starting about 15,000 years ago. It seemed to be a fairly rare dog line for most of dog history until the past 300 years, when the lineage seemed to “explode” out and spread quickly. What really separates this group from the pack is its presence in Alaskan village dogs and Samoyeds. It is possible that this was an indigenous lineage brought to the Americas from Siberia when people were first starting to make that trip themselves! We see this lineage pop up in overwhelming numbers of Irish Wolfhounds, and it also occurs frequently in popular large breeds like Bernese Mountain Dogs, Saint Bernards and Great Danes. Shetland Sheepdogs are also common members of this maternal line, and we see it a lot in Boxers, too. Though it may be all mixed up with European dogs thanks to recent breeding events, its origins in the Americas makes it a very exciting lineage for sure!

A226

Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1e haplogroup, we have spotted this haplotype in village dogs in Central and South America and Papua New Guinea. Among the 10 breeds we have detected it in, we see it most frequently in Border Collies, Doberman Pinschers, and Samoyeds.

Irish Wolfhounds are a consistent carrier of A1e.

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 Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh 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 Quantum’s Enjoy The Journey Ruh is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
