“We adopted Reilly July 2018 after our 15 year old Schipperke passed away. Reilly had several homes before he came to us. His birthday is 10/2/2017 and that he looks like and acts like a Schipperke. Unfortunately, he did not have any papers other than a vet's records with his birth date. He has white tips on his two back paws and he has a longer frame than the Schipperke standard, not squared. We'd like to know what other breeds may be in his DNA. His health is also very important.”

C1

Reilly’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.

Ambiguous_C1

Reilly’s Haplotype

Maternal haplotypes are defined such that every unique marker we test for is necessary to make a confident call. In the case of your dog, there were too many missing mtDNA markers to reliably define a haplotype this way. However, we know your dog falls in the C1 haplogroup, which we can define more broadly.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

The C1 maternal line is commonly found in Jackals.

A1b

Reilly’s Haplogroup

For most of dog history, this haplogroup was probably quite rare. However, a couple hundred years ago it seems to have found its way into a prized male guard dog in Europe who had many offspring, including the ancestors of many European guard breeds such as Doberman Pinchers, St. Bernards, and Great Danes. Despite being rare, many of the most imposing dogs on Earth have it; strangely, so do many Pomeranians! Perhaps this explains why some Poms are so tough, acting like they're ten times their actual size! This lineage is most commonly found in working dogs, in particular guard dogs. With origins in Europe, it spread widely across other regions as Europeans took their dogs across the world.

Ha.8

Reilly’s Haplotype

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this rare haplotype occurs most often in Schipperkes and village dogs in Croatia.

Great Danes and Pomeranians have this in common!
