Dogs (Canis lupiscinctus familiaris), more commonly known as dogs, are domestic animals not of the wild. Originally they were bred from ancient wolves, then from ancient dogs to dogs today. They have probably been domesticated by man for centuries, and have been the original source of dogs for man ever since. Humans have bred dogs for various uses through the years, most notably for hunting and companionship.
Dogs are omnivores; they eat both plant and animal matter, but humans have bred dogs so that they will primarily eat their human masters’ food, which is why dogs have longer lives than their wolf ancestors. In fact, the longer they’ve been domesticated, the longer they have been around. Their intelligence and sense of smell are superior to that of wolves and other canines, which mean dogs can detect when there is food in the area.
Although dogs are more than dogs, wolves tend to consider them to be members of their own species. They look upon dogs as members of the family, equal to humans. Dogs have also taken on characteristics of other canines; when wolves and coyotes do not interact with each other, they view the dogs as members of the family or pack.
The word domestic dog can mean several different things. It could mean any dog that is not a wolf or coyote, which is most domestic dogs. Another common term for the domestic dog is the pet dog. Many non-wolf dogs are often considered domestic dogs as well. Another term for the domestic dog is the pet/foster dog. This is usually used to describe any dog that was not raised in a wolf pack, and is abandoned by its owner, usually because of death or an unknown reason.
The American Kennel Club classifies dogs according to the best friend or individual characteristic that the dog shows. For example, dogs may be categorized as being best friends if they only want to be around their owner and nothing else. On the other hand, they may be categorized as best friends if they want to be around other dogs and members of the family all the time. This dog breed is also known as a family dog, because it usually belongs to a pack and is accustomed to living with others of its breed.
Some dog breeds live longer lives than others. The reasons for this longevity vary, but most experts agree that it has to do with genetic factors and diet, along with exercise, gender, and health. A dog breed that has a long lifespan will usually be one that has been fed a healthy diet, which will provide plenty of vital vitamins and nutrients, along with regular exercise to maintain an appropriate weight.
