Neat ~ South America was very hard hit by hanta virus all through the 1500s. The "village dogs" must have been devastated by the loss of the "village".

People living amidst social destruction probably turned to eating off the dogs first.

These last few centuries/thousand years, man has produced through artificial selection breeds ranging from the Great Dane to the Chihuahua. The world is approximately 4.6 billion years old.
In other news, Bulldogs rule. Over to you Chet ...

One of the cable TV networks did a little story on what would survive something worse than a nuclear holocaust (i.e., an EMP), and they concluded that that sheep dogs would do fine. They would pass along their herding and protection duties to the next generation, and next, and next beyond that...while the rest of the world would collapse around them.

But previous population surveys in the Americas turned up only dogs with European heritage.

I thought chihuahuas were American. They named a whole state after them in Mexico.

“Dog breeds were created by human beings”

Really...really doubtful, that is.

Of dogs I know this- German Shepherds are very smart and make wonderful, family pets, unless you get one from all German bloodlines, which will lead to the discovery they were bred for East German prison camp security. Anyone needing such please email me ;) “Bloody stump” is part of our family lexicon.
