Recent studies presenting genetic analysis of dog breeds do not focus specifically on genetic relationships among pointing dog breeds, although hunting was among the first traits of interest when dogs were domesticated. [] Key Result We identified 236 alleles in autosomal microsatellites, four Y-chromosome haplotypes and 18 mitochondrial haplotypes.

Figures and Tables from this paper

On ancestors of dog breeds with focus on Weimaraner hunting dogs.
TLDR
The investigated breeds represent 9 of 10 groups defined by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and the level of Y chromosomal and especially mtDNA diversity was immense considering the relatively small number of individuals investigated per breed.
Molecular structure in peripheral dog breeds: Portuguese native breeds as a case study.
TLDR
Although the level of breed differentiation detected is below that of other dog breeds, there is in most cases a correlation between breed affiliation and molecular structure, and a geographical genetic structure was detected, which suggests a limited influence of African dogs on the Iberian breeds.
Rapid genetic diversification within dog breeds as evidenced by a case study on Schnauzers.
TLDR
High genetic diversity was noted over all breeds, with the ancient Asian breeds exhibiting the highest variability, as was indicated chiefly by an extraordinarily high number of rare and private alleles.
New insights into the genetic composition and phylogenetic relationship of wolves and dogs in the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
The Iberian wolf represents a relic of the once widespread wolf population in Europe and the study reveals that it is a reservoir of unique genetic diversity of the grey wolf, Canis lupus.
Genetic variability of the Bracco Italiano dog breed based on microsatellite polimorphism
TLDR
The results suggest the need for a careful genetic management of the population in order to avoid the risk of an excessive increase in the inbreeding level which would result in significant inbreeding depression and in significant loss of genetic variation.
Genetic diversity of dog breeds: within-breed diversity comparing genealogical and molecular data.
TLDR
It was concluded that special efforts should be made to maintain diversity for three breeds, namely the Berger des Pyrénées, Braque Saint-Germain and Bull Terrier.
Microsatellite loci analysis for the genetic variability and paternal lineages in Iranian native dogs
TLDR
The results of the current study indicated the segregation of breed-specific alleles in some dog populations, and showed that the populations had a relatively high genetic variation.
Investigating the population structure and genetic differentiation of livestock guard dog breeds.
TLDR
This study investigated the population structure and the genetic differentiation of three Italian livestock guardian breeds and three functionally and physically similar breeds, totalling 179 dogs unrelated at the second generation, to show clear breed differentiation.
The effects of dog breed development on genetic diversity and the relative influences of performance and conformation breeding.
TLDR
Principal coordinate analysis indicated that conformation-type breeds were distinct from breeds heavily used for performance, the latter clustering more closely with village dogs.

Analysis of genetic variation in 28 dog breed populations with 100 microsatellite markers.
TLDR
Assessing the genotypic variation within and across 28 breeds representing the seven recognized breed groups of the American Kennel Club (AKC) to elucidate phylogeny and genetic distances between breeds shows more accurate determination of breed phylogeny will likely require the use of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
Unequal Contribution of Sexes in the Origin of Dog Breeds
TLDR
A comparison of mitochondrial DNA and Y chromosome diversity in dog groups recognized by the World Canine Organization, as well as in groups defined by the breeds' genetic composition, shows that paternal lineages are more differentiated among groups than maternal lineages.
Y chromosome haplotyping in Scandinavian wolves (Canis lupus) based on microsatellite markers
TLDR
This study analysed genetic variability at four microsatellite loci on the canid Y chromosome and constructed haplotypes, which indicated that there should have been at least two males involved in the founding of the Scandinavian wolf population after the bottleneck in the 1970s.
Genetic variability in East Asian dogs using microsatellite loci analysis.
TLDR
Korean native dogs formed the closest groups and then showed a close relationship to the Eskimo dogs, reflecting the fact that the Korean native dogs might be originated from dogs in the northern part of Far East Asia.
Comparative F statistics analysis of the genetic structure of ten Spanish dog breeds.
TLDR
The dendrogram, obtained by using values of genic differentiation (FST) as a measure of the genetic distance among populations, is topologically identical to the one obtained using Nei's index of distance, which indicates a high correlation (r = .99) between both distances.
Phylogenetic relationships, evolution, and genetic diversity of the domestic dog.
TLDR
The results do not support a New World domestication of dogs nor a close association of the Xoloitzcuintli with other hair-less breeds of dogs, but mitochondrial DNA analysis suggests a more ancient origin of dogs than has been indicated by the fossil record.

TLDR
The evolutionary relationships of the domestic dog to other carnivores is document by using a variety of DNA‐based information and a phylogenetic comparison of mitochondrial DNA sequences in dogs and gray wolves shows that dogs may have originated from multiple wolf populations at a time much earlier than suggested by the archaeologic record.
Variation of short tandem repeats within and between species belonging to the Canidae family
TLDR
Analysis of exclusion power and probabilities of genetic identity between unrelated animals by use of the seven most informative loci demonstrated that it will be possible to assemble a panel of microsatellite loci that is effective for parentage analysis in all breeds.
Assessment of the population structure of five Finnish dog breeds with microsatellites.
TLDR
The presented data imply genetic isolation and intense artificial selection in the history of these breeds of dogs and the highest genetic diversity was exhibited in the Wirehaired Dachshunds and lowest in the Bedlington Terriers.
Multiple and ancient origins of the domestic dog.
TLDR
Sequences from both dogs and wolves showed considerable diversity and supported the hypothesis that wolves were the ancestors of dogs, suggesting that dogs originated more than 100,000 years before the present.
