A brief history of brave dogs | 15 Images

When it comes to the discussion of our society, culture or tradition the topic “dogs” cannot be avoided as dogs are such an integral part of human society. The close interaction between humans and dogs has not started in the recent past as it is a strong bond which dates back thousand years of human evolution.

In ancient years the men and wolves lived near each other. And also, both groups happened to share the food by hunting the same animal. With time, species of wolves emerged who prefer to live in groups or families. With the close association of humans, those species developed social skills, communication skills and cooperation. They were less afraid of human contact and mainly because of the regular food routine given by human society, those wolves did not live away from humans. With these various connections, the social skill of these species gradually developed and finally the domestication of dogs began. Furthermore, the regular food basis paved the way for those species to flourish and many offsprings were born.

The dogs are smaller than wolves and they are less aggressive. Their friendliness is another special quality of theirs. The teeth became smaller and snouts got shorter. And also the curly tail and floppy ears are other special trait of dogs. Eventually, they looked less like wolves and more like dogs.

In the dawn of industrialization, people began breeding dogs for different jobs. There are about 1000s of different breedings. Now dogs are more than pets in our families. They are constant companions, co-workers, protectors etc. And also dogs are exchanged as lovely gifts among people. This inseparable, intimate bond between dogs and humans is not only a relationship but also an amazing feeling which should be felt by every warm heart.
