Where did all these dogs, dachshunds, poodles and dog? The debate on this issue is not yet over. Some zoologists believe that the dog is none other than domesticated wolves, the other insists that the genealogical tree of starting from jackals, some that in dogs the blood flows and those and others. There is a belief that the dog originated not from a wolf and not from a Jackal, and from animals that were the common ancestors of all these predators. The end of the protracted litigation can put genetics - biochemical tests will show exactly who whose relative.
The process of domestication, alas, is also unclear whether some of the clever members of the tribe has beckoned orphaned cubs or akalat, deciding that it would be a good janitor, whether at the dawn of humanity swarms of primitive dogs hunted with primitive people - helped to drive production. And people in the history of left part produced, allocated share. So it was anyway, but most likely, in those days people and dogs collaborated on an equal footing. And who "tamed"it's hard to say.
