Health Summary

danger icon

Titan is at increased risk for one genetic health condition.

Von Willebrand Disease Type I, Type I vWD

danger icon

Titan inherited one copy of the variant we tested

How to interpret this result

Titan has one copy of this variant in the VWF gene and will likely have decreased levels of vWF compared to a dog without this variant. However, they will have higher levels of vWF than a dog with two copies of this variant. There is a slightly increased risk of bleeding in dogs with one copy of the variant, particularly when other clotting issues are also present. Please consult your veterinarian for further diagnostic and care options.

What is Von Willebrand Disease Type I, Type I vWD?

Von Willebrand Disease (vWD) is a type of coagulopathy, a disorder of blood clotting. vWD is characterized into three types based on clinical severity, serum levels of vWF, and vWF multimer composition. Dogs with Type I vWD have low vWF levels, normal multimer composition, and variable clinical signs.

Through Titan’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

C1

Titan’s Haplogroup

Congratulations, C1 is a very exotic female lineage! It is more closely associated with maternal lineages found in wolves, foxes and jackals than with other dog lineages. So it seems dogs in this group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf! This is not a common lineage in any breed, though a good number of German Shepherds and Doberman Pinchers are C1. It is also found in breeds as diverse as Peruvian Inca Orchids and Pekingese; it is rarely found amongst Labrador Retrievers, Border Collies, Siberian Huskies, or Cocker Spaniels. Despite its fascinating origins, it is widely distributed around the globe, and even shows up frequently among Peruvian village dogs. It almost certainly survived at low frequency in Europe for millennia and then was dispersed outside of Europe by colonialism, though not as successfully as some other lineages.

C38

Titan’s Haplotype

Part of the C1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Doberman Pinschers and Black Russian Terriers.

The C1 maternal line is commonly found in Jackals.

A1b

Titan’s Haplogroup

For most of dog history, this haplogroup was probably quite rare. However, a couple hundred years ago it seems to have found its way into a prized male guard dog in Europe who had many offspring, including the ancestors of many European guard breeds such as Doberman Pinchers, St. Bernards, and Great Danes. Despite being rare, many of the most imposing dogs on Earth have it; strangely, so do many Pomeranians! Perhaps this explains why some Poms are so tough, acting like they're ten times their actual size! This lineage is most commonly found in working dogs, in particular guard dogs. With origins in Europe, it spread widely across other regions as Europeans took their dogs across the world.

Ha.13

Titan’s Haplotype

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Doberman Pinschers.

Great Danes and Pomeranians have this in common!
