Stella

Harrier

“Stella is an intact female Harrier. She came to me by airplane from Oregon when she was just 8 weeks old. She is a very active dog. Her training for the show ring was extremely easy. I am looking forward to doing some obedience and tracking with her. Her scenting ability is superb! Nose work with her will be lots of fun! She has a wonderful memory and is an entertaining breed to own. She has her UKC Championship and we are currently working on her AKC Championship! Hopefully we can breed her in”

Harrier

Harriers are an old English breed valued for their sweet temperaments and devotion to their masters. Bred originally as hunting dogs, there is a good deal of debate on how this simple hound came to be. It is likely that they are a mix of English Foxhounds and Greyhounds, though some people insist that there is also some Bloodhound in the mix. In either case, their true ancestry will likely always remain a mystery, as the first record of them dates to 1260.

Through Stella’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.

B1

Stella’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B54

Stella’s Haplotype

Part of the large B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Basset Hounds, West Highland White Terriers, and village dogs in Namibia.

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

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

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