Even though dogs come a wide range of sizes, shapes and colors, genetically,
there is only one species of dog. (Canis lupus familiaris, also called Canis
familiaris or Canis lupus). The differences that we see among dogs are varieties
or “breeds” of that one species. One of the oldest known dog breeds is the
basenji, which is ingenious to central Africa.
Dogs are closely related to foxes and jackels; and according to most experts,
dogs are actually domesticated wolves, which over the course of time,
developed a distinct genetic signature. Reportedly, the earliest of dogs looked
like the present-day dingo, which is a wild dog native to Australia.
