Some of the interesting haplotypes found in these dogs with notes from Embark.
H8.1 found in Max from al Khobar and Pavlova from Dubai. H8.1 - Part of the E haplogroup, this haplotype has been spotted in Basenjis, Canaan Dogs, and village dogs spanning from Africa into the Middle East.
H8.4 found in Jimmy from Um al Quwain. H8.4 is found in dogs from the south and east of India.
H9 found in Wiley from Egypt and in Basenjis and African village dogs. Part of the F haplogroup F is the odd duck in the family of domestic dog male lineages. This paternal lineage is genetically closer to wolves, foxes, and jackals than to other dogs. This indicates that it came into the dog population after dogs were originally domesticated, when one particularly attractive male wolf mated with a female dog, over 6,000 years ago. Since then, these dogs found their way into Africa and Mongolia. It hasn't been found outside those areas except in Basenjis. Basenjis are an iconic African breed, that first made its way to the USA in the early 20th century when a handful of individuals were imported from the Congo. The Basenji is an ancient breed which is distantly related to other dog breeds (most of which are European or Asian), and it has the earliest separation date from all other breed populations. Unsurprisingly, the F lineage has also been found in African village dogs, as well as, surprisingly, some samples from Mongolia. The fact the lineage is found in two very distant places is evidence that it entered the dog population many thousands of years ago.
C1 found in Pack leader, Jenny and Jimmy from um al Quwain. Jenny and Jimmy are siblings and are related to Pack leader. C1 - Congratulations, C1 is a very exotic female lineage! It is more closely associated with maternal lineages found in wolves, foxes and jackals than with other dog lineages. So it seems dogs in this are group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf!
A158 found in Robin from Dubai. A158 - Part of the large A1e haplogroup, we have detected this haplotype in village dogs in India.
A264 found in Cookie from Jeddah. A264 - Part of the large A1e haplogroup, this haplotype occurs in Irish Wolfhounds and village dogs from Iraq and Lebanon.
B105 found in Honey from Fujairah B105 - Part of the B2 haplogroup, the B105 haplotype occurs most commonly in Middle Eastern Village Dogs. It's a rare find!
B77 found in Tess from Fujairah. B77 - Part of the B1 haplogroup, this haplotype occurs most frequently in Japanese Chins.
