Meet Puddles! Puddles was born in 2019 and was rescued from the euthanasia list at Contra Costa Animal Services because he had been there too long! We knew we had to scoop him right up when we saw his sweet face. Puddles will make your heart melt! This guy is so goofy and friendly. Puddles loves to play fetch and will chase tennis balls and frisbees for hours if you let him. He often gets the zoomies, but he will always check in on his person and lean his body against you for cuddles. Puddles is very intelligent and food motivated. He will sit easily for treats and is eager to learn more. Puddles is great in the car, a good walker with a harness, and is great with kids. He is thought to be friendly with other dogs but needs a proper introduction. Puddles is the perfect adventure buddy and would thrive as a family dog or with an active companion. Come on down and meet this ray of sunshine!

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.
