Shadow Wulfric Joje

Mixed Breed

  • First visit to the Santa Monica bluffs!

“Shadow was adopted at 1 year 1 month old and is 3 now! He is such a loving, cuddly, playful sweetheart! He displays traits of all breeds in his mix, it's been fun identifying all the different aspects of his larger than life personality! He absolutely loves car rides and going to the dog park, that is his favorite place. He enjoys long prancy walks and can easily handle at least 4 hours in the car, if not longer. He sleeps through the night and doesn't wake us up in the morning, he is a dream!!”

A1a

Shadow Wulfric Joje’s Haplogroup

A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.

A16/17/99/100

Shadow Wulfric Joje’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this common haplotype is found in village dogs across the globe. Among breed dogs, we find it most frequently in Labrador Retrievers, Newfoundlands, German Shepherd Dogs, and Golden Retrievers.

A

Shadow Wulfric Joje’s Haplogroup

A is the distant relative of some of the most numerous paternal lineages in the world. Characterized by a single sub-lineage, this is a rare and interesting paternal line! The A line is found most commonly in Siberian Huskies and in Alaskan village dogs. It seems plausible that this paternal lineage diverged within the last 10,000 years from a group arriving with the first Arctic explorers. The recent ancestors of dogs with this lineage actually allowed humans to survive in some of the most forbidding conditions on the face of the earth!

Hc.1

Shadow Wulfric Joje’s Haplotype

The lone member of the A haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Siberian Huskies and village dogs from Alaska.

Siberian Huskys are the only breed to have the A haplogroup.
