Maybelle was DNA tested by UC Davis. The University identified 33 genetic markers for each dog (66 total genes as there is one gene from each parent per marker). Maybelle's genes will be compared to those of other tested poodles, allowing us to choose the most diverse mates for her (She is an amazing choice for Noah and that breeding will occur in 2018). Diversity is said to strengthen immune systems, furthering the improvement of health within our own program and our breed. The University's test also includes markers in the Dog Leukocyte Antigen (DLA) class I and II regions, which regulate cellular and antibody immunities and are carefully weighed in our pairings.

The following paragraphs indicate the frequencies of those markers in tested standard poodles.

1) DLA I Haplotypes (proxy of genes which regulate cellular mediated immunity): 1001 (26.01% frequency in Standards) and 2001 (59.38% frequency in Standards).

2) DLA II Haplotypes (proxy of genes which regulate antibody mediated immunity):1008(2.03% frequency in Standards) and 2005 (2.43% frequency in Standards).

3) 23 out of 33 possible gene pairs are different in Maybelle's parents.

Maybelle's dam is Moshe's littermate, Lata. Maybelle's sire is an import from England.

Both of her parents are OFA certified. Click to see the results of her sire's tests and her dam's results. .

Maybelle is a quiet and very serious dog, unless she is outdoors with Rich (as you can see from the pictures). She loves to "hunt it up," whatever the target of her hunts are. She is sweet and loving, and is a great asset to our family.
