Embark Supermutt analysis

What’s in that Supermutt? There may be small amounts of DNA from these distant ancestors:

East Asian Village Dog

Many years ago, when wolves began scavenging our hunting camps, they became gradually attuned to human life. Genetic changes in those wolves over time led to tameness, small body size and early age of first reproduction that soon after yielded what we see today in the East Asian village dogs.

Through Tasha’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.

A6

Tasha’s Haplogroup

A6 is a rare maternal lineage. The only breed we have seen it in to date is Tibetan Mastiffs. Otherwise, we only see it in village dogs in Nepal.

A92/117

Tasha’s Haplotype

The lone member of the A6 haplogroup, this rare haplotype occurs in Tibetan Mastiffs and village dogs in Nepal.

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 Tasha inherited from her mom and dad? Check out her breed breakdown and family tree.

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