Meet our newest member of the MCHS family, Roo. She was living in a Texas animal shelter and was 72 hours away from euthanasia when she was scooped up and eventually brought to us. This 55-pound large mixed breed is such a cutie, and the first thing you notice is her big bunny-like ears. Roo is very sweet with people, her favorite thing is to cuddle and play with her toys. At times she can have separation anxiety, so we are looking for a loyal owner who can give her all the love and attention she deserves. It would be helpful to find someone who can work on training, although she already knows basic commands and is food motivated. Roo needs someone who has the love and time to give her the best home.
Roo 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.
