Wolfs- I had a Shepherd part wolf and it was the most gentle and loving dog ever. It kept my outside cats warm during the winter by letting them cuddle with him. I never had or ever will have a dog as great as him.
sole ancestor of the dog, which was first domesticated in the Middle East. Dogs are the wolf's closest relative (the genetic divergence between gray wolves & dogs is only as opposed to over between gray wolves, Ethiopian wolves & coyot.
