“Crazy Smart dog. We rescued Zoey from Twin Falls Shelter. Her second time to be given up. Zoey is skittish of both people and dogs. Nips if strangers get too close (not socialized at a young age, we suspect). She is athletic, loyal, smart and bossy. Strong herding instinct, pattern oriented, likes jumping and complex agility. Smooth coated Border Collie has been suggested. I see more traits of Border-Canaan-Mountain Cur; temperament is definitely Canaan-is. Easy to train--food focused.”

Through Zoey’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.

E

Zoey’s Haplogroup

Haplogroup E is a very rare maternal line, present primarily in Northern breed dogs and dogs with some level of recent gray wolf ancestry.

E40

Zoey’s Haplotype

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

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