“Daisy was found as a stray and Open Arms Rescue found her in a shelter. I adopted her on 09/20/2016 and she is a wonderful dog. She is about four years old and loves people and dogs. She loves to play fetch, car rides, and walks. She has short legs and a long body and I wonder if she could have a dachshund in her background. They say she is a bichon/poodle mix and maybe Maltese. I am very eager to learn more about her. She is very healthy and very sweet.”

Haplogroup

A1e

Haplotype

A163

A1e

Daisy’s Haplogroup

This female lineage likely stems from some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs starting about 15,000 years ago. It seemed to be a fairly rare dog line for most of dog history until the past 300 years, when the lineage seemed to “explode” out and spread quickly. What really separates this group from the pack is its presence in Alaskan village dogs and Samoyeds. It is possible that this was an indigenous lineage brought to the Americas from Siberia when people were first starting to make that trip themselves! We see this lineage pop up in overwhelming numbers of Irish Wolfhounds, and it also occurs frequently in popular large breeds like Bernese Mountain Dogs, Saint Bernards and Great Danes. Shetland Sheepdogs are also common members of this maternal line, and we see it a lot in Boxers, too. Though it may be all mixed up with European dogs thanks to recent breeding events, its origins in the Americas makes it a very exciting lineage for sure!

A163

Daisy’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1e haplogroup, we have not detected this haplotype in village dogs yet. In fact, the only breed we see this haplotype in is German Shorthaired Pointers. It’s a rare find!

Irish Wolfhounds are a consistent carrier of A1e.
