“Quintana Roo is very versatile dog- I guess that's what 7+ breeds will get you! Roo trained for a marathon with me last year, he also likes to hike & camp. He's a therapy dog who helps kids read. He loves to swim, but hates the rain! He's very smart and loves obedience and agility classes. He's energetic, fun loving and playful outside, but knows how to be well mannered inside too. He's really an all around awesome dog!”

Haplogroup

A1b

Haplotype

A268

A1b

Quintana Roo’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!

A268

Quintana Roo’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1b haplogroup, this uncommon haplotype occurs most frequently in Labrador Retrievers and has been spotted less often in Golden Retrievers, Poodles, and Chihuahuas.

Some other Embark dogs with this haplotype:

A1b is the most common haplogroup found in German Shepherds.

Haplogroup

A1a

Haplotype

H1a.6

A1a

Quintana Roo’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

Quintana Roo’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.
