Introduction

The reputation of a dog as man’s best friend is indisputable. Dogs played a key role in humankind's existence since the day of the caveman. They have been used for hunting, security, and herding. The first wild dogs are believed to have formed a symbiotic companion relationship with humankind thousands of years ago. Wild dogs would enter camps and villages to scrounge for food. Humans would offer the dogs scraps of food in order to build a relationship with the four-legged canines. In exchange for the kindness of the humans, the dogs grew attached to their caregivers and alliances were formed. Dogs started to lovingly protect their humans in exchange for food, companionship, and care. 

There is evidence that humankind domesticated wolves 35,000 years ago, according to the Smithsonian Magazine. Wolves followed early humans around in search of food scraps. Humans are believed to have befriended the wolves and maybe even raised their puppies. Modern Siberian Huskies and the sled dogs of Greenland share certain genes with the ancient Taimyr wolves who are believed to have been the forefathers of all canine companions today.
