The dog is an animal in the Canidae family.

In ACG works, dogs frequently appear, and even play a major role in some works.



Dogs are animals that have a close relationship with humans, the history of dogs owned by humans dates back to 40,000 to 15,000 years ago. Today, dogs and horses are known together as "man's best friend". Their typical lifespan is usually more than 10 years, it has become the pet with the highest breeding rate.

Since 1753, wheh Carl Linnaeus used the binomial method to lassify animals, despite being controversial, the prevailing opinion has been to label the wolf (Canis lupus) and the dog (Canis canis) as different species. This has been going on for over two hundred years. Until 1993, based on the latest research information synthesized by the Smithsonian Institution and the American Mammal Society, both have been reclassified, classifying dogs as a subspecies of wolves, the official scientific name of the dog (domestic dog) has also been given as "Canis lupus familiaris". Today, the recognition of the domestic dog as a subspecies of the wolf has been adopted by the international scientific community, on the other hand, they believe that dogs were domesticated from gray wolves by early humans, and the domestication process has changed the way dogs look and think.
