Tuli

Mixed Breed

“He's named after the reggae music artist, Isaac Tuli (Tuli Ranks, Rankin Tuli, Pupa Tuli). I found Tuli at the Humane Society of Waimea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Tuli lives high up on the slopes of the Kohala mountain range. Tuli enjoys going to the beach at Laupahoehoe Point, hiking around the Big Island, and playing with his friends at the softball park in Hilo and Honoka'a. Tuli loves playing in the mud behind his house in the cow pasture, digging holes, and playing with a water hose.”

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

Health Summary

Tuli inherited one variant that you should learn more about.

Dilated Cardiomyopathy, DCM2

Tuli inherited one copy of the variant we tested

What does this result mean?

Our research indicates that this genetic variant is not likely to increase the risk that Tuli will develop this disease.

Scientific Basis

Dogs with similar breeds to Tuli are not likely to have increased risk of developing the disease. Research has indicated increased risk in other breeds that are not found in Tuli.

What is Dilated Cardiomyopathy, DCM2?

DCM is the most common acquired heart disease of adult dogs. The heart has two heavily muscled ventricles that pump blood away from the heart. This disease causes progressive weakening of the ventricles by reducing the muscle mass, which causes the ventricles to dilate. Dilated ventricles do not contract and circulate oxygenated blood well, which eventually leads to heart failure.

A1b

Tuli’s Haplogroup

This female lineage was very likely one of the original lineages in the wolves that were first domesticated into dogs in Central Asia about 15,000 years ago. Since then, the lineage has been very successful and travelled the globe! Dogs from this group are found in ancient Bronze Age fossils in the Middle East and southern Europe. By the end of the Bronze Age, it became exceedingly common in Europe. These dogs later became many of the dogs that started some of today's most popular breeds, like German Shepherds, Pugs, Whippets, English Sheepdogs and Miniature Schnauzers. During the period of European colonization, the lineage became even more widespread as European dogs followed their owners to far-flung places like South America and Oceania. It's now found in many popular breeds as well as village dogs across the world!

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in German Shepherd Dogs, Poodles, and Shiloh Shepherds.

A1b

Tuli’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.

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in mixed breed dogs.
