Map

A5

Palisadie’s Duchess of Sheborgo (Sadie)’s Haplogroup

A5 is a rare maternal lineage. It is most numerous among the village dogs of Vietnam, though it is also present in the Chow Chow breed. Additionally, it is found in the Carolina Dog, and attests to this population’s origins among the indigenous native dog.

A202

Palisadie’s Duchess of Sheborgo (Sadie)’s Haplotype

Part of the A5 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in village dogs in Vietnam.

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 Palisadie’s Duchess of Sheborgo (Sadie) is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
