Meet one of MCHS’s newest canine additions: Mack! This fluffy three year old Border Collie mix is ready to jump into your home with lots of love. Mack was rescued from a shelter in Texas and would enjoy some car rides and running along the coast. Border Collies are a very smart breed, and Mack is no exception. He knows basic commands and would improve from some more training when he gets adopted. Mack does not mesh well with cats and we are working towards getting him okay with dogs. Mack would do best with a active family and has been friendly with kids and people. Come on down and give some love to Mack!
Mack available for adoption at MCHS

Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and are now considered to be man’s best friend. However, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear and there are several theories about how they came to be domesticated.
One theory is that dogs were originally domesticated by early humans for their hunting abilities. Wolves, which are the ancestors of modern dogs, were likely attracted to the camps of early humans because of the abundance of food. As the wolves became more accustomed to human presence, they may have been domesticated and trained to assist in hunting.
Another theory is that dogs were domesticated for their ability to protect early human settlements. Wolves are naturally territorial animals and may have been tamed by early humans to serve as guard dogs for their camps and homes.
There is also evidence to suggest that dogs were domesticated for their companionship. Early humans may have formed close bonds with wolves, eventually leading to the domestication of the animals.
Regardless of the exact reason for their domestication, it is clear that dogs have played a crucial role in human society for thousands of years. They have been used for a variety of purposes, including hunting, protection, and companionship. Today, dogs are kept as pets in nearly every corner of the world and are beloved by people of all ages.
In conclusion, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear, but it is likely that they were domesticated for their hunting abilities, protective nature, and companionship. Today, dogs continue to play a vital role in human society and are an important part of many people’s lives.
