Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the fascinating world of the entire dog family. Superb real-life photographs of dogs, wolves, jackals and foxes offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history and evolution of the dog family, highlighting the many ways in which they have helped people throughout history. See the oldest-known remains of a domestic dog, an amazing tree-climbing fox, a rare golden jackal, a howling wolf, how a dog swims, a fox with bat ears, and a husky in sled harness. Learn why dogs and wolves hunt in packs, how dogs "talk" with ears and tails, the basics of looking after a pet dog, and how dogs were once used to sniff out truffles. Discover how special breeds of domestic dog have developed, the hierarchy of the wolf pack, how dogs were specially taught to help humans, why a hyena is not a dog, which members of the dog family are threatened with extinction, and much, much more!

Synopsis:

The history, habits, and domestication of the world's second favorite pet is described in Dog--how they evolved, how social behavior enables both wild and tame dogs to survive, and how each breed differs from the others. Full-color photographs.
