19 November 2020
The American Alsatian dog bred by the Dire Wolf Project currently maintains 6 different and distinct haplotypes. Haplotypes are whole snippets of gene code that are inherited without modification and can be traced back through ancestry tens of thousands of years to the original wolves that became the first domesticated dogs. 319 haplotypes have been discovered in dogs housed on 6 haplogroups. The American Alsatian dog breed currently represents 3 of those 6 haplogroups in our work: A, C, & D.
