Where do we take puppies/dogs that we are unable to care for?
Although no one knows exactly when dogs were domesticated, archaeologists do know that many cultures around the globe began treating dogs like members of the tribe around 14,000 years ago. This alliance with dogs was so profound that in many ancient cemeteries dogs have been discovered buried in the same graves as humans.
This link between man and beast is poignantly rendered in Jean M. Auel’s novel, The Valley of Horses, in which she gives us a fictional account of the possible beginnings of our relationship with the wolves that would later become our canine companions.
