Abstract The most widely accepted hypothesis of the origin of the dog, Canis familiaris, is that the dog is a domesticated gray wolf, Canis lupus. This paper reviews the evidence for this conclusion, finds many unanswered questions and conceptual gaps in the wolf origin hypothesis, and explores the alternative hypothesis that the most likely ancestor of the domestic dog was a medium-size, generalist canid. 
The dog with human: Its origins and benefits to modern people
Based on results of molecular phylogenetic analyses and archaeological evidences, most researchers believe that the dog is descended from the wolf and that east Asia was the central place for the
Paleogenomic Inferences of Dog Domestication
Domestication is the result of a complex interplay of both biological and cultural processes. The mechanism underlying today’s variety of domesticates has long sparked the interest of researchers but
Mothering the Orphaned Pup: The Beginning of a Domestication Process in the Upper Palaeolithic
Several hypotheses have been proposed to explain the initial steps in the domestication process of the wolf. We discuss the human-initiated model in which wolf pups were brought to camp sites by male
THE NEW GUINEA SINGING DOG: ITS STATUS AND SCIENTIFIC IMPORTANCE
TLDR
The singing dog may be an important evolutionary link to humankind's most ancient domesticated mammal, C. familiaris, and to the Australian dingo (Canis dingo).
An updated description of the New Guinea singing dog (Canis hallstromi, Troughton 1957)
TLDR
The data support Troughton’s identification of this canid as a unique taxon, although further studies are needed to clarify the exact level of taxonomic differentiation of this rare and possibly highly endangered canid.
Visual Attention in Dogs and the Evolution of Non-Verbal Communication
The common history of Homo sapiens and Canis lupus familiaris dates back to between 11,000 and 32,000 years ago, when some wolves (Canis lupus) started living closely with humans. Although we cannot
Controversies of Origin of Domestic Dog-I-References of Evolution Factors of Wolf

Genetic and behavioral characteristics of the St. Kitts ‘island dog’
TLDR
To address the question of whether ‘island dogs’ possess the genetic signature of an indigenous origin, mitochondrial deoxyribonucleic acid (mtDNA) and Y chromosome typing were used and genetic analysis indicated a likely European (post-colonial) origin for these dogs.
Warring brothers: The complex interactions between wolves (Canis lupus) and dogs (Canis familiaris) in a conservation context
TLDR
The review highlights how the wolf–dog relationship challenges human attempts to construct simple dichotomies between wild and domestic, or between nature and culture, and wolf conservation must adapt to this more complex reality.
Altruism in wolves explains the coevolution of dogs and humans
The date of historical domestication of dogs has been pushed back to between 15,000–30,000 years ago (estimates vary), a time when hunter-gatherer societies predominated in northern Europe and

Man-Made Dogs
TLDR
A description of the recently extinct Dusicyon australis is given and it is suggested that this South American canid may have been tamed and then introduced and domesticated by man in the Falkland Islands during the early Holocene.

TLDR
Analysis indicates most canid remains, originally identified as wolf ( Canis lupus), to be wolf/dog hybrids exhibiting constant and continual backbreeding to the local wolf populations.

TLDR
The results demonstrate that the domestic dog is morphologically distinct from all other canids except its close relatives, the wolf‐like canids.
Changes in the skull morphology of the Arctic wolf, Canis lupus arctos, during the twentieth century
Measurements of a large series of skulls of the Arctic wolf, Canis lupus arctos. have shown that since 1930 there has been an overall reduction in the size of the skulls, together with widening of
Hybridization between Wolves and Dogs
TLDR
It is suggested that hybridization may not be an important conservation concern even in small, endangered wolf populations near human settlements, because the behavioral and physiological differences between domestic dogs and gray wolves may be sufficiently great such that mating is unlikely and hybrid offspring rarely reproduce in the wild.
Variability in the Wolf, a Group Hunter
TLDR
This chapter discusses the four interrelated aspects of that adaptation: (1) group hunting practices, (2) intrapack aggressive behavior, (3) reproduction, and (4) wolf individuality.
Multiple and ancient origins of the domestic dog.
TLDR
Sequences from both dogs and wolves showed considerable diversity and supported the hypothesis that wolves were the ancestors of dogs, suggesting that dogs originated more than 100,000 years before the present.
Size, shape and development in the evolution of the domestic dog
TLDR
Allometric analysis of craniometric data from prehistoric domestic dogs from North America and northern Europe and from recent wild Canis indicates that anterior cranial length dimensions are tightly scaled among all Canis, while the dogs show divergent allometries on cranial width dimensions.
