Welcome To The World Of Dogs
The global dog population is estimated to between 700 million to over one billion, making the dog the most abundant member of order Carnivora.
Experts say that dogs were domesticated between 12,000 and 25,000 years ago—and that all dogs evolved from the wolf.
Since then, humans have selectively bred more than 400 breeds, ranging in size from four-pound teacup poodles to Irish wolfhounds, whose three-foot stature earns them the title of tallest canine. But the most popular pooches are non-pedigree—the one-of-a-kind dogs known as mixed-breeds.
Each dog has his own unique set of characteristics and personality. But one thing is certain – these lovable and wonderful companions are fascinating creatures.
