“Wild-caught from NC. Aug 2017, she became the very first registered CD to ever win an AKC title! She digs snout pits, is very agile, high prey drive, very fast and athletic, regurgitates food for her pups, reserved but social with strangers, a lover with family. She set multiple breed records and firsts, including speed record for female CDs (nearly 30mph at 7.5yo, which she still holds), first to earn invite to/compete in Dock Diving Regionals, and earned 32 titles. This girl is just amazing!”

Carolina Dog

The Carolina Dog was originally a landrace, rediscovered as a wild dog by Dr. I. Lehr Brisbin, and originally documented in American dog breed publications in the 1920s. Although descended from free-ranging dogs, Carolina Dogs can make good family pets with proper socialization. Carolina Dogs have been a UKC-recognized breed since 1996 and are now part of the AKC Foundation Stock Service (FSS). While debates rage on about the genetic origins of the breed and whether there are still pockets of feral Carolina dogs living in Southeastern US, AKC and UKC Carolina Dogs clearly have a unique and identifiable genetic signature.

Through Tirzah’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.

A1d

Sweet Carolina Mine’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A11a/419

Sweet Carolina Mine’s Haplotype

Part of the A1d haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Yorkshire Terriers, Old English Sheepdogs, and Miniature Schnauzers.

The vast majority of Rottweilers have the A1d haplogroup.

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

Are you looking for information on the breeds that Tirzah inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown.

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