Harrier

Harriers are an old English breed valued for their sweet temperaments and devotion to their masters. Bred originally as hunting dogs, there is a good deal of debate on how this simple hound came to be. It is likely that they are a mix of English Foxhounds and Greyhounds, though some people insist that there is also some Bloodhound in the mix. In either case, their true ancestry will likely always remain a mystery, as the first record of them dates to 1260.

B1

HARTSHIRE WESFORD DODGED A BULLET’s Haplogroup

B1 is the second most common maternal lineage in breeds of European or American origin. It is the female line of the majority of Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Shih Tzus, and about half of Beagles, Pekingese and Toy Poodles. This lineage is also somewhat common among village dogs that carry distinct ancestry from these breeds. We know this is a result of B1 dogs being common amongst the European dogs that their conquering owners brought around the world, because nowhere on earth is it a very common lineage in village dogs. It even enables us to trace the path of (human) colonization: Because most Bichons are B1 and Bichons are popular in Spanish culture, B1 is now fairly common among village dogs in Latin America.

B54

HARTSHIRE WESFORD DODGED A BULLET’s Haplotype

Part of the large B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most commonly in Basset Hounds, West Highland White Terriers, and village dogs in Namibia.

The B1 haplogroup can be found in village dogs like the Peruvian Village Dog, pictured above.

A1a

HARTSHIRE WESFORD DODGED A BULLET’s Haplogroup

Some of the wolves that became the original dogs in Central Asia around 15,000 years ago came from this long and distinguished line of male dogs. After domestication, they followed their humans from Asia to Europe and then didn't stop there. They took root in Europe, eventually becoming the dogs that founded the Vizsla breed 1,000 years ago. The Vizsla is a Central European hunting dog, and all male Vizslas descend from this line. During the Age of Exploration, like their owners, these pooches went by the philosophy, "Have sail, will travel!" From the windy plains of Patagonia to the snug and homey towns of the American Midwest, the beaches of a Pacific paradise, and the broad expanse of the Australian outback, these dogs followed their masters to the outposts of empires. Whether through good fortune or superior genetics, dogs from the A1a lineage traveled the globe and took root across the world. Now you find village dogs from this line frolicking on Polynesian beaches, hanging out in villages across the Americas, and scavenging throughout Old World settlements. You can also find this "prince of patrilineages" in breeds as different as German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Pugs, Border Collies, Scottish Terriers, and Irish Wolfhounds. No male wolf line has been as successful as the A1a line!

H1a.6

HARTSHIRE WESFORD DODGED A BULLET’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in Labrador Retrievers, Basset Hounds, and Leonbergers, and village dogs in Fiji.

Dogs with A1a lineage travelled during European Colonial times.
