“My one eyed wonder dog. Sasha was rescued in Kuwait after she was abused quite badly. She lost an eye and has scars all along her one leg and paw from where a rope was embedded in her leg. Despite what she went through there, she is super sweet, silly, loving and my little clown.”

Saluki

Salukis are very fast, very ancient dogs. Some believe they were the first domesticated breed. Salukis are sighthounds, but today they are mainly companion dogs. Today, this is a particularly rare breed.

Health Summary

warn icon

Sasha inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

Bald Thigh Syndrome

warn icon

Sasha inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

Because this variant is inherited in an autosomal recessive manner (meaning dogs need two copies of the variant to develop the disease), Sasha is unlikely to develop this condition due to the variant.

What is Bald Thigh Syndrome?

A cosmetic condition common to sighthounds characterized by hair loss on the thighs. It is caused by a structural abnormality of the hair follicle.

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

E

Sasha’s Haplogroup

Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.

E42

Sasha’s Haplotype

The E haplogroup in general is not common. It has been found in dogs with some level of background mixing with its wolf-like ancestors.

The Paternal Haplotype reveals a dog’s deep ancestral lineage, stretching back thousands of years to the original domestication of dogs.

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Sasha inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

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 Sasha is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
