Dogs: From Domesticated Pets to their Wild Originality

Dr. Manjula Uppal [2]

Abstract: An increase in dog menace and dog bite by stray dogs in Indian cities and towns could be attributed to genetic changes because of cross breeding with ferocious hunter dogs which are being taken up by humans as captive pet dogs since it has become a craze to keep farm hunting dogs as pets in urban societies, especially in India. Moreover availability of waste food acts as a strong epigenetic factor to favour change which can be well observed and documented with a change in morphological and behavioural pattern where packs of robust stray dogs are seen roaming around, a typical wild feature of wolves to which dogs own their ancestry.
