And Man Created Dog
Around 15,000 years of human intervention – first by accident and later by design – has created the planet’s most diverse species: the dog. Dogs are not only our best friends, but also probably our oldest. In this documentary And Man Created Dog we go on a journey from prehistoric days, and learn the story of how dogs evolved from wolves and found a home with humans. Our intervention not only changed the dog from a close descendent of the wolf into a useful servant and companion, but also helped humans survive, settle down and thrive. Through breeding useful traits in dogs, humans created animals that empowered us to move our belongings, hunt food, protect livestock, crops and our own lives. This is the story of how wolves and humans forged a bond that changed dogs, humans and the world forever.
