Meet Moo, the happiest dog you will ever meet! This handsome ten-month old originally came to us in January from a rescue in Covelo. He was the runt of a litter of 8 puppies that all had beautiful black and white, cow-looking markings (hence the name “Moo). Moo was adopted out, but was tragically abandoned by his family and ended up back at our shelter in August. Despite this, Moo is one of the sweetest and friendliest dogs here. He is very people-oriented, and wants to be best friends with everyone he meets. His entire body wags when you walk by his kennel, and his excitement to see you will melt your heart. Moo also loves his doggy friends. He plays nicely with every dog we’ve paired him with at the shelter, and we even think he would be fine living with cats. Moo is still young and would benefit from more puppy training, but he is a very smart boy and he would bring so much joy to anyone who adopts him!

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.
