Meet our handsome four-legged patriarchs. They are all health tested and well loved. Learn more about their genetic age, traits, maternal haplotypes and paternal haplotypes, health profile and more from Embark Dog DNA.
Lycan is a very handsome wolf grey husky with parti-eyes. He is very sweet, loves attention, and giving hugs!
He is part of the "C1" Maternal Halpgroup. "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 group have a common male dog ancestor who, many thousands of years ago, mated with a female wolf! This is not a common lineage in any breed.
He is part of the "A1a" Paternal Haplogroup. "A1a" was the basis for some of the wolves that became the original dogs in Central Asia around 15,000 years ago. After domestication, they followed their humans from Asia to Europe and then didn't stop there. 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 dogs from this line frolicking on Polynesian beaches, hanging out in villages across the Americas, and scavenging throughout Old World settlements.
Vulcan the Valiant
Vulcan is a very handsome agouti husky with bright blue eyes. He is very energetic and playful! He is also an AKC certified Trick Dog.
He is part of the "A1d" Maternal Haplogroup. "A1d" is a female lineage that can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly.
He is part of the "A" Paternal Haplogroup. "A" is the distant relative of some of the most numerous paternal lineages in the world. Characterized by a single sub-lineage, this is a very rare and interesting paternal line! It seems plausible that this paternal lineage diverged within the last 10,000 years from a group arriving with the first Arctic explorers. The recent ancestors of dogs with this lineage actually allowed humans to survive in some of the most forbidding conditions on the face of the earth!
Beautiful and Beloved Ladies
Meet our beautiful four-legged matriarchs. They are all health tested and well loved. Learn more about their genetic age, traits, maternal haplotypes, health profile and more from Embark Dog DNA.
Raven is a beautiful wooly coat husky. She is a bit shy at first, which can be attributed to her relatively high ancestral wolf content, but once she gets to know you she is very sweet. She loves to cuddle!
She is part of the "A1d" Maternal Haplogroup. This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were first domesticated into modern dogs!
Koori Yama's Eden of the East
Eden is a beautiful light gray and white husky. She is extremely energetic and very sweet. She comes from Champion/International Champion bloodlines, with her Sire being a Russian import and Dam being a Puerto Rican Jr Champion.
Her bloodline is very prestigious and can be traced all the way back to Leonhard Seppala, who is famous for importing the very first Siberian Huskies into the United States and leading his team of sled dogs to deliver a serum to Nome, Alaska. The Disney movie "Togo" was based on his lead dog during this historic serum run.
