Cardigan Welsh Corgi Cardigan Welsh Corgi
Cardigans are masterpieces of the dog breeder’s art: every aspect of their makeup is perfectly suited to moving cattle, and yet they are so congenial and sweet-faced that they’d be cherished companions even if they never did a day’s work. They’re very trainable, faithful, and vigilant guardians with a “big dog” bark. Well-socialized Cardigans are especially fond of kids and agreeable with other pets. Proper exercise and diet are vital to these long, low dogs—they’re hearty eaters and excess weight can lead to health issues.

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

Through Poppyseed’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

Sunkissed Fashion Sense at JenEllen’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.

B84

Sunkissed Fashion Sense at JenEllen’s Haplotype

Part of the large B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Golden Retrievers, Beagles, and Staffordshire Terriers.

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