Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College

Mixed Breed

“Remus is very active and needs plenty of ball chasing or walks. Walks are nice but he really needs to sprint and play retreive the ball once or twice a day for 10 minutes each. Remus is an athlete, he sprints both ways retrieving the ball. Spins and dives after the ball on crazy bounces. We have had him since rescued at 10 weeks, now 14 months, still a puppy, tons of energy and about 43 lbs. Very healthy. Loving home and life for him.”

Through Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College’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

A1d

Haplotype

A542

Map

A1d

Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A542

Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College’s Haplotype

Part of the A1d haplogroup, the A542 haplotype occurs most commonly in Bulldogs. It's a rare find!

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

Haplogroup

A1a

Haplotype

H1a.37

Map

A1a

Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College’s Haplogroup

Some of the wolves that became the original dogs in Central Asia around 15,000 years ago came from this long and distinguished line of male dogs. After domestication, they followed their humans from Asia to Europe and then didn't stop there. They took root in Europe, eventually becoming the dogs that founded the Vizsla breed 1,000 years ago. The Vizsla is a Central European hunting dog, and all male Vizslas descend from this line. During the Age of Exploration, like their owners, these pooches went by the philosophy, "Have sail, will travel!" From the windy plains of Patagonia to the snug and homey towns of the American Midwest, the beaches of a Pacific paradise, and the broad expanse of the Australian outback, these dogs followed their masters to the outposts of empires. Whether through good fortune or superior genetics, dogs from the A1a lineage traveled the globe and took root across the world. Now you find village dogs from this line frolicking on Polynesian beaches, hanging out in villages across the Americas, and scavenging throughout Old World settlements. You can also find this "prince of patrilineages" in breeds as different as German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Pugs, Border Collies, Scottish Terriers, and Irish Wolfhounds. No male wolf line has been as successful as the A1a line!

H1a.37

Remus, from Professor Remus Lupin of HogWarts College’s Haplotype

Part of the A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in mixed breed dogs.
