Based on the diversity associated with today’s pet breeds, scientists think that your dog was formed by crossing many associated species from your dog family. Among them, Charles Darwin [36] and the ethologist of Austria, Konrad Lorenz, had been the initiators of the theory of evolution, who concluded that the ancestors of the domestic pet were a wolf and a jackal. Today’s set up opinion, supported by the full total results of genetic analyzes, will be that the domestic doggie developed from a small band of wolves, domesticated about 15,000 years back.

It is not known exactly how the domesticated canine was held. It’s possible that canines were the ones who made the first step. Namely, if wild dogs began to be little enough to be unsafe, to go to human discarded bones, they could collect waste materials and camps. Thus, people probably tolerated them since they were cleansing their surroundings. It is possible they have begun to fascinate, approach them, and domesticize them as guard dogs and companions then. It had been only once agriculture has been progressing that the herds could possibly be preserved. Or otherwise: the canines followed a smarter line in the hope to getting anything from prey.

The first remains of a domestic doggie were discovered in Mesolithic sites in different places. It appears that the earliest European breed of dog was quite small and would usually be best in comparison to today’s small puppy.

Many breeds originate from a small number of animals, which leads to mating in kinship. The effect is several hereditary (genetic) diseases common in some breeds, for example hip dysplasia (specifically in German shepherds), epilepsy, ataxia, oculoskeletal dysplasia, among others
