Armenian Gampr

The Armenian Gampr is an ancient, working livestock guardian dog originally bred in the southern Caucasus Mountains. The Gampr is considered a landrace rather than a breed with a closed population; they are genetically diverse with an emphasis on function rather than form. There are several regional variants of the Gampr.

Health Summary

warn icon

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

ALT Activity

warn icon

Sana inherited one copy of the variant we tested

Why is this important to your vet?

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

A1c

T'aguhu Uzh Ovsanna of Grigoryan's Aragats’s Haplogroup

About 15,000 years ago in Central Asia, females from this lineage were some of the wolves domesticated as the original dogs. Since then, dogs from this lineage traveled through the Middle East to Africa, where they became some of the African village dogs and basenjis, which are a native African breed of dog. There are also still pockets of dogs with this lineage that remained in Asia or places along the route to Africa, such as India. This lineage has also been found in the Borzoi, a Russian dog breed.

A298

T'aguhu Uzh Ovsanna of Grigoryan's Aragats’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1c haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in village dogs in central and southern Asia (Mongolia and India, specifically).

The presence of A1c in a Borzoi indicates a deep history of this lineage in Eurasia

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