Stevie came to us as a bottle baby in September 2022 and has spent his whole life in the shelter. We’re hoping 2024 is his chance to find a forever home!

We recommend a slow introduction to Stevie to give him a chance to get to know you, but he is very affectionate with his favorite people and has been known to be a big-time snuggler. He’s selective with other dogs, and would need a careful meet and greet here at the shelter with any potential canine housemates, in addition to a slow, gentle introduction when he gets home.

He would do best with an experienced handler who can work with him on manners and adjusting to life in the outside world. Our dog walkers report that he can be quite strong on the leash and would not be a good fit for homes with young children or cats.

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.
