The story I like most to tell is the one of the wolf turned dog. At the beginning of the Neolithic period, when Man began to discover agriculture and settle down about ten thousand years ago, he approached the wolf who had similar behaviours such as the concept of group hunting to better trap their prey or hide meat reserves. The two species often encountered one another in the hunt to such an extent that the four-legged beast bonded with the standing animal for easier access to food. And Man, in his sovereignty, managed to make the wolf docile, even to total domestication. The result of this mutual cooperation gave the dog. This animal species that we know for its potential for fast running, its excellent sense of smell and for its specific cry, barking. The dog barks, his tail is erect and his ears fall like a wolf cub, depending on man, he gradually loses his wildness. This chapter is an abbreviation of the great complexity of the evolution of a group, among some 300 breeds of dog that have a varied history.
