Have you ever seen a dog like Roo?! With her marbled gray coloring, bright blue eyes, and giant ears, Roo is simply one of a kind. Her favorite things in life include cuddling in her blankets, playing with alllll of the toys (she does not discriminate), playing fetch, and going on long walks where she can get some exercise and smell all the great scents along the way. She even loves baths and sits so nicely in the tub the whole time. Her goofy personality really shines in the play yard when she can get out her zoomies and bathe in the sun. So, why hasn’t this gorgeous sweetheart been adopted yet? Unfortunately, Roo came from rocky beginnings. At 1.5 years old, she is a puppy that was never taught how to be a dog. Growing up, she never received the stability and training that showed her how to behave. She was originally rescued from a high-kill shelter in Texas at four months old, but after just six months in her new home, her owners lost their housing and were unable to keep her. Because of all the changes she’s gone through, Roo suffers from anxiety, and we don’t think she’s ever truly felt safe in her environment. She can be afraid of loud noises and being left alone for long periods of time. Because of her past and lack of proper socialization, Roo is reactive to most dogs. She has lived with dogs before, but shelter staff have so far been unable to find a playmate for her. However, Roo is great with people and eager to make new friends wherever she goes. She is super smart and loves learning new tricks. She already knows “sit “down “shake and “high five. She’s a good walker, and will do anything for food. Overall, Roo just needs someone confident and patient who can see her potential as an amazing dog, and work to bring out her best self. She would thrive as the only pet in the home, with people who can give her all the love and attention she craves. Once she has decompressed and adapted to her new environment, we think Roo will become the goofiest and most loveable companion!

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.
