Origins of the Domestic Dog

, , ,

Darren Naish reviews evidence suggesting that the conventional view that domestic dogs descend from a number of independently-domesticated wolf populations is wrong. Recent studies suggest that domestic dogs more probably descend from an ancestral form much closer to pariah dogs, the semi-domesticated and feral dogs of the Old World tropics.

And Steve Bodio agrees.

Very interesting. Thanks, Steve.
