Dogs And There Origins.

Reference From Darren Naish: Tetrapod Zoology

Dogs were first domesticated from wolves at least 12,000 years ago. In this time, the dog has developed into hundreds of breeds with a great degree of variation.

Two genetic studies have just rewritten the history of humanity's best friend. The new version has moved the origins of the domestic dog from the Middle East to East Asia and argues that the first people to venture into the Americas brought their dogs with them.
