Haplogroup

Haplotype

A232

A1a

Sadie’s Haplogroup

A1a is the most common maternal lineage among Western dogs. This lineage traveled from the site of dog domestication in Central Asia to Europe along with an early dog expansion perhaps 10,000 years ago. It hung around in European village dogs for many millennia. Then, about 300 years ago, some of the prized females in the line were chosen as the founding dogs for several dog breeds. That set in motion a huge expansion of this lineage. It's now the maternal lineage of the overwhelming majority of Mastiffs, Labrador Retrievers and Gordon Setters. About half of Boxers and less than half of Shar-Pei dogs descend from the A1a line. It is also common across the world among village dogs, a legacy of European colonialism.

A232

Sadie’s Haplotype

Part of the large A1a haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in village dogs in the South Pacific, as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina. Among breed dogs, this haplotype is most frequent in Labrador Retrievers, Yorkshire Terriers, and Maltese.

Shar Pei dogs think A1a is the coolest!
