“Rambo was rescued in Columbus, GA in 2014 after being a stray for almost a year. Rambo loves being a barn dog and became attached to our horse Danny very quickly. Rambo loves trail rides, running, and all things adventure. Rambo also loves to swim! He is a great swimmer and he loves to fetch a stick or ball but usually doesn't want to give it back. He is the most loyal and loving dog and we are so lucky to have him.”

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

Haplogroup

A1b

Haplotype

A268

Map

A1b

Rambo’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!

A268

Rambo’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1b haplogroup, this uncommon haplotype occurs most frequently in Labrador Retrievers and has been spotted less often in Golden Retrievers, Poodles, and Chihuahuas.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

A1b is the most common haplogroup found in German Shepherds.

Through Rambo’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

Haplotype

Hc.1

Map

A

Rambo’s Haplogroup

A is the distant relative of some of the most numerous paternal lineages in the world. Characterized by a single sub-lineage, this is a rare and interesting paternal line! The A line is found most commonly in Siberian Huskies and in Alaskan village dogs. It seems plausible that this paternal lineage diverged within the last 10,000 years from a group arriving with the first Arctic explorers. The recent ancestors of dogs with this lineage actually allowed humans to survive in some of the most forbidding conditions on the face of the earth!

Hc.1

Rambo’s Haplotype

The lone member of the A haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Siberian Huskies and village dogs from Alaska.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

Siberian Huskys are the only breed to have the A haplogroup.
