BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF

BETWEEN DOG AND WOLF

Author - Jessica Addams & Andrew Miller - Publisher - Dogwise

Dogs are dogs and wolves are wolves. Except when they aren’t!

Most scientists now agree that the dog is a subspecies of wolf—Canis lupus familiaris. And while most wolves look and act differently from most dogs, it can be very hard to make accurate identifications, especially since wolves and dogs can and do interbreed and certain breeds of dogs look and act a lot like wolves.

Having spent years employed at Wolf Park, in Indiana, authors Jessica Addams and Andrew Miller have encountered hundreds of so-called wolves that turned out to be dogs, hybrids that exhibit the characteristics of both wolves and dogs, and even pure wolves that act like dogs. Between Dog and Wolf takes a fascinating look at how wolves and dogs are related, why they can be so hard to tell apart and what rescue organizations need to know when they encounter a canine of unknown origins.

DOG ANATOMY

DOG ANATOMY

Author - Goody - Publisher - Allen

This text is intended to provide the reader with the essentials of dog anatomy and has been produced for people who enjoy dogs and wish to know a little more about their overall structure.

Dog owners, breeders, exhibitors, judges - anyone requiring information about the anatomy of the dog - should find the book useful. It should also be of interest to students beginning a course in veterinary anatomy. The emphasis throughout the book is placed on those points of anatomy that can be seen or felt from the surface through the skin. Surface views therefore form an important component of many of the drawings.

A number of other drawings specifically relate internal anatomy to the surface of the body. Therefore the position and relationships of various internal components of the vaascular, digestive, respiratory and urogenital systems are shown in surface projections.

DOGS: DOMESTICATION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SOCIAL BOND

DOGS: DOMESTICATION AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SOCIAL BOND

Author - Darcey Morey

Like a hound on scent, Darcy Morey pursues the dog down the twisting paths of prehistory to its wolf origins and then tracks back through the dense tangle of contemporary genetic and neurological research to show how it came to capture our homes and hearts.

384 pages trace the evolution of the dog, from its origins about 15,000 years ago up to recent times. The timing of dog domestication receives attention, with comparisons between different genetics-based models and archaeological evidence.

Patterns between dogs and wolves, shed light on the nature of the changes that dogs underwent. Dog burials highlight a unifying theme of the whole book: the development of a distinctive social bond between dogs and people; the book also explores why dogs and people relate so well to each other. Though cosmopolitan in overall scope, the greatest emphasis is on the New World, with an entire chapter devoted to dogs of the arctic regions. Discussion of several distinctive modern roles of dogs underscores the social bond between dogs and people. Fascinating!

DOMESTIC DOG

DOMESTIC DOG

Author - Serpell - Publisher - Cambridge University Press

By any standards, dogs are extraordinary animals. They have been part of human society for longer than any other domestic species. They exist in a greater variety of different shapes and sizes, and they occupy a wider ecological niche, from pampered pets and faithful servants to feral scavengers.

Even our attitudes to dogs seem to oscillate between extremes. On the one hand, the dog is man’s best friend, on the other, he is the despised and degraded outcast. This unique book seeks to expose the real dog beneath the popular stereotypes. Its purpose is to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of the domestic dog’s natural history and behaviour based on scientific and scholarly evidence rather than hearsay. Anyone with a serious interest in Canis familiaris, its evolution, behaviour, and its place in our society will find The Domestic Dog an indispensable and fascinating resource.
