Where do dogs come from? Dog historians agree on one thing – the dog’s main ancestor was the grey wolf. Since then, far from being ferocious hunting animals, dogs have been our faithful companions for literally thousands of years.
This video published by The Atlantic explains how current evidence points to not one ‘domestication event’ but two. What does that mean? Watch the cute animated video below to get more information on why scientists are beginning to think that dogs became pets twice, and then migrated across the continent of Asia and Europe.
Interesting! As the video says, dogs have been at our side since before humankind started planting crops or keeping farm animals. Dogs truly are our oldest, best friends!
