These are intelligent, cheerful, and loyal dogs who can make a great addition to a family. The Koolie is not an aggressive breed and is usually comfortable with new people or new surroundings. Koolies are eager to be trained null but this doesn't necessarily mean they're easy to train. When starting obedience training, find an instructor who understands how herding dogs work and you will wind up with an excellent companion dog.

Our algorithms predict this is the most likely family tree to explain Jason’s breed mix, but this family tree may not be the only possible one.

Health Summary

Jason has one variant that you should let your vet know about.

ALT Activity

Jason inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

Through Jason’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.

A5

Aurora’s camp crystal lake killer’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.

A206

Aurora’s camp crystal lake killer’s Haplotype

Part of the A5 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Chow Chows and Xoloitzcuintlis.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

The Chow Chow is a carrier of the rare A5 haplogroup.

Through Jason’s Y-chromosome we can trace his father’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.

Map

A1a

Aurora’s camp crystal lake killer’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.10

Aurora’s camp crystal lake killer’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in village dogs throughout Africa and down into the South Pacific. Among breeds, this haplotype occurs in 5 breeds and is most common among Shetland Sheepdogs, Border Collies, and Cairn Terriers.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

Dogs with A1a lineage travelled during European Colonial times.
