Haplogroup

B1

Haplotype

B1/13

B1

Lani’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.

B1/13

Lani’s Haplotype

Part of the large B1 haplogroup, this common haplotype occurs in village dogs throughout the world including Central and South America, South Asia, and the South Pacific. In the 39 breeds we have sampled this haplotype in, it occurs most frequently in Shih Tzus, Tibetan Spaniels, and Maltese. It is also the only haplotype we have detected in Coton de Tulears so far!

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