“He was a stray in the Oklahoma City area, picked up by animal control. Millers Cause Animal Rescue pulled him from the shelter, and he was in a foster home in Amarillo TX for a while. They believed he was a Miniature Australian Shepherd. His first adoptive home in CA didn't work out, apparently he was too energetic, so he went back into foster care in Medford OR, courtesy of Australian Shepherds Furever. Sage has earned his first NW3 title in nose work and Flyball Master, since adopted.”

Health Summary

warn icon

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

warn icon

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

A4

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster’s Haplogroup

The A4 maternal lineage is fairly rare. It is found in Cocker Spaniels, but A4 is also represented well among East Asian breeds including the Chinese Crested Dog, Shar-Pei and Shih Tzu. Moving away from Asia, it is also found among Chihuahuas (a very old breed!) and village dogs in Peru. This may be a lineage that moved into Western breeds because of their owners' tendencies to mix them up with Eastern breeds in the early modern period.

A210

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster’s Haplotype

Part of the small A4 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Chihuahuas and Maltese.

Map

A1a

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster’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.39/57

Sagebrush Smiley Snallygaster’s Haplotype

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