Haplogroup

A1b

Haplotype

A315

A1b

Jules’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!

A315

Jules’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1b haplogroup, we have only seen this haplotype in village dogs from Turkey and Fiji. Among breeds, it occurs most frequently in Vizslas, English Setters, and English Springer Spaniels.

A1b is the most common haplogroup found in German Shepherds.
