Sneaky

Mixed Breed

“She is Very intelligent, high strung, shy but curious with strangers, excited and friendly with whom she knows/recalls. Licks a lot when greeting. She has endless energy, howls but very rarely barks. Loves other dogs of all sizes and likes nearly everyone including children but bestows trust and affection only after initial introduction. In my convertible car she likes to ride with front paws on area above my convertible car's visor/windshield for a better view and is an excellent co-pilot.”

Siberian Husky Siberian Husky
Bred initially in Northern Siberia, the Siberian Husky is a medium-sized working dog who is quick and light on their feet. Their moderately compact and well furred body, erect ears and brush tail suggest their Northern heritage. Huskies are very active and energetic and are known for being long distance sled dogs.

Coyote Coyote
Coyotes aren’t really dogs. That’s the first thing people need to know about them. The second thing they need to know is that Coyotes do not make very good pets—they should be left to live in the wild as nature intended. However, just because people can’t bring them into their homes doesn’t mean that they aren’t fascinating creatures. There is a lot we can learn from these canid cousins of our beloved house pets.

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

Through Sneaky’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.

C1

Sneaky’s Haplogroup

Congratulations, C1 is a very exotic female lineage! It is more closely associated with maternal lineages found in wolves, foxes and jackals than with other dog lineages. So it seems dogs in this group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf! This is not a common lineage in any breed, though a good number of German Shepherds and Doberman Pinchers are C1. It is also found in breeds as diverse as Peruvian Inca Orchids and Pekingese; it is rarely found amongst Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies, Siberian Huskies, or Cocker Spaniels. Despite its fascinating origins, it is widely distributed around the globe, and even shows up frequently among Peruvian village dogs. It almost certainly survived at low frequency in Europe for millennia and then was dispersed outside of Europe by colonialism, though not as successfully as some other lineages.

C27

Sneaky’s Haplotype

Part of the C1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in German Shepherd Dogs, Labrador Retrievers, Siberian Huskies, and village dogs from Peru and Croatia.

The C1 maternal line is commonly found in Jackals.

This 'Paternal Haplotype' tab is for deep ancestral lineage going back thousands of years.

For recent ancestry—"What breeds did my dog inherit from her mom and dad?"—please refer to the Breed, Family Tree, or Summary tab.

The Paternal Haplotype refers to a dog’s deep ancestral lineage stretching back thousands of years, before there were any distinct breeds of dog. We determine the Paternal Haplotype 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 Sneaky is a female (XX) dog, she has no Y-chromosome for us to analyze and determine a paternal haplotype.
