Xygan has been tested by Embark also!

Saturday, 04 December 2021

Xygan has been tested also in the United States by Embark for 200 genetic abnormalities at DNA level. Fortunately, this has shown that he doesn't carry any abnormalities. He is free of all abnormalities to be tested, on which SDCA1, SDCA2, CJM and DM.

Despite we know his mother was a Dutch Shpeherd mix and his father is a Belgian Malinois, it turns out (after been tested twice by Embark) 100% Xygan is 100% Belgian Malinois. According to Embark, this is because the Dutch Shepherd and Belgian Malinois, used to be 1 1 breed. Their DNA is very closely intertwined, also his mother was also a Dutch Shepherd x Malinois mix with very few Dutch Shepherds in her bloodlines. That little that it is immeasurable. They will store his DNA for future methods to to break this down in even more detail.
