The dog (Canis lupus familiaris Linnaeus, 1758) is a mammal belonging to the order Carnivora, of the canidae family. With the advent of domestication he distinguished himself from the wolf, of which he represents a neotenic form (although there are divergent opinions on this). Compared to the wolf, it has less sharp canines, white fangs, more extended legs, longer intestines and is devoid of sharp claws.
The domestication of the dog by man has very ancient origins. The oldest dog fossil remains in a human settlement have been found in a Natufian tomb, and date back to 11,000-12,000 years ago; but it is assumed that the origin of the relationship between the two species goes much further back in time, between 19,000 and 36,000 years ago. The study of a skull of a "dog-like canid" but not directly related to the modern dog, found in the Altai mountains in Siberia, has led to the hypothesis that the different modern dog breeds do not have a single common ancestor, but are descended from several distinct processes. of domestication of wolves in different areas of the world.
