I know some animal owners struggle with Man’s Best Friend Pet Canine in today’s world. For example one of the oldest known breed of dogs is the Salukis. I would say they were bred by Egyptians thousands of years ago as hunting dogs. Best of all the Greyhounds and Dalmatians are also among the oldest breeds documented. In addition dogs helped herd cattle and sheep, and guard their master’s property. The Ancient Greeks developed tiny lap pets. In more recent years, puppies have been trained as seeing eye dogs for the blind. Most importantly canines have also been recruited to work with law enforcement to detect drugs and explosives.
I know dogs such as the Poodle or Chihuahua, no longer resemble the wolf. Best of all the Siberian Husky and the German Shepherd still show a strong resemblance to the wolf. There are breeds like the short haired Beagle and Boston Terrier to the long haired Cockers and Scotties. The Beagle may be better suited to live in the city, while Irish Setters or Border Collies may be more comfortable in the country. In addition the tallest dogs are Great Danes and the Irish Wolfhound. I would say they be more comfortable in a place where the puppy had a lot of room to run and play.
When dogs are one year old, they are as physically mature as a 15 year old human. Dogs can see some color but not as vividly as humans, thus they are considered color blind. Yet, dogs can see much better in dim light than us. Pets have us beat in the category of smell, also. Their sense of smell is up to one million times greater than humans! I know some pooch owners struggle with Man’s Best Friend Pet Canine in todays world.
