Some information about Dogs

Dog is a species of wolf family. It is one of the important animals of the domesticated animals of man. The average lifespan of a dog is about 12 years. It lives between the forest and the human society. It is an omnivorous animal.

Dogs began with the domestication of the wolf in Western Europe 11–16,000 years ago. This is during the time when humans were hunters. Proto-dogs may have taken advantage of carcasses left by early humans after hunting, as well as helping to capture prey and providing protection from larger predators. Dogs got the nickname "man's best friend" in human society.

Wolves and their canine descendants, living near human camps would provide them with significant benefits such as greater security, more reliable food sources and more chance to breed. At the same time, humans must have got huge benefits from the dogs living near their camps. The dogs used to clean up the waste food and they would have alerted the camp to the presence of predators or strangers.

Anthropologists believe that early humans may have had a significant advantage of the dog's sensitive sense of smell in hunting. The mutual coexistence greatly increased the survival chances of early humans and proto-dogs. Dogs were of great importance among Native American tribes, they used them to carry weight.

Dogs have a long history of being kept as pets. Archaeologists found the remains of an elderly human and a four to five-month-old puppy buried together during excavations in Israel. Initially dogs were kept as pets to guard the house. But gradually over time, dogs became a part of human life and family. Dogs were shown as ideal pets on TV and many popular TV shows featured dogs as protagonists. According to the National Pet Owners Survey in 2009-2010, 775,00,000 people in the United States alone have a pet dog.

Despite their close genetic affinity and ability to interbreed, there are several clinical features to differentiate gray dogs from domestic dogs. Domesticated dogs are clearly distinguished from wolves by starch gel electrophoresis of red blood cell acid phosphatase. The tympanic balau is large, convex, and almost brown in color in wolves, while the calves of dogs are smaller, narrower and slightly ruffled.

Compared to similarly sized wolves, dogs have 20% smaller skulls and 30% smaller brains. The teeth of gray wolves are also proportionally larger than those of dogs. Dogs have a more domed forehead and a distinctive "stop" between their forehead and nose. The temporalis muscle that closes the jaws is stronger in wolves. Wolves do not have dewclaws on their feet. Most dogs lack a functioning pre-caudal gland and enter estrus twice a year, in contrast to gray wolves, which do so only once a year. So-called primitive dogs such as dingoes and basenjis maintain an annual estrous cycle.

Dogs generally have brown eyes and wolves are almost always amber or lighter in color. The skin of domestic dogs is thicker than that of wolves. A dog's paws are half the size of a wolf, and their tails are pointed up, a trait not found in wolves. The dog has evolved into hundreds of different breeds and shows more behavioral and morphological variation than any other land mammal.
