Historians trace the group to the Molossus, a dog bred by the Ancient Greeks. Semantic overlap with other terms As To the extent that Latinate words such as "Dogo" or "Dogge" may be translated as "Mastiff", molosser breeds such as the Dogo Argentino and Dogo Canario may also be considered "mastiffs". However, these terms may refer not only to breeds called "Mastiffs" in English, but also to Bulldogs and pitbulls. In addition, historical records of the development of these breeds shows that they have puppy puppies cute cutest fun funny funniest obedience training obedient home video videos pet pets animal animals feed food pug pugs chihuahua chihuahuas breeding mate mating dog doggy doggies canine canines k9 k9s cocker spaniel spaniels american eskimo eskimos foxhound hound hounds pit bull bulls pitbulls shepherd shepherds beagle beagles golden black lab labs doberman dobermans great dane danes cruelty cruel Retriever greyhound terrier terriers jack russell russells asian asia canada canadian america europe africa not only mastiff and other molosser ancestry, but also dogs from several other branches, including sighthounds, terriers, and scenthounds. The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris) is a subspecies of the gray wolf (Canis lupus), a member of the Canidae family of the mammalian order Carnivora. The term "domestic dog" is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and pet animal in human history The ation word "dog" can also refer to the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word "bitch" which refers to the female of the species. Recent studies of "well-preserved remains of a dog-like canid from the Razboinichya Cave" in the Altai Mountains of southern Siberia concluded that a particular instance of early wolf domestication approximately 33,000 years ago did not result in modern dog lineages, possibly because of climate disruption during the Last Glacial Maximum. The authors postulate that at least several such incipient events have occurred. A study of fossil dogs and wolves in Belgium, Ukraine, and Russia tentatively dates domestication from 14,000 years ago to more than 31,700 years ago. Another recent study has found support for claims of dog domestication between 14,000 and 16,000 years ago, with a range between 9,000 and 34,000 years ago, depending on mutation rate assumptions. Dogs' value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "man's best friend" in the Western world. In some cultures, however, dogs are also a source of meat In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world. Most breeds of dog are at most a ...
