Around 15,000 years ago, man befriended the Grey Wolf. Man domesticated the wolf and they learned to live together in harmony.
That, is not the end of the story however. As man moved around the globe, he took the domesticated wolves with him. In the different regions, different tasks were required of the wolves – catching prey, retrieving, carrying luggage, standing guard and many more. Over time, the wolves were bred to become more adept at their tasks, until eventually they became the array of dog breeds we have today.
