Wolves, Wild and Domesticated Dogs
Do our fuzzy BFFs, modern day wolves, and wild dogs share a common ancestor? How are they all still alike? Dig in with us to explore your pup’s wild roots and the difference between wolves, wild and domesticated dogs.
Differences Between Wild and Domesticated Dogs
For years and years now, we’ve invited dogs into our homes to share our lives and kiss our faces. By now, we all know the basic story of how the love between dogs and humans grew—first there were wolves, then we were like “oh, these are cute and awesome” and the nicest, cutest, awesomest wolves got invited more and more into our lives and they bred with each other and their pups were even nicer and cuter still.
Then, we started breeding dogs to do specific jobs, like hunting or herding. And then, eventually, that whole selective breeding thing kind of snowballed and now we have pugs and French bulldogs and Chihuahuas.
