It is said that dogs came from a creature similar to a wolf called Tomarctus ("father of dogs"), which roamed the earth about 15 million years ago. Dogs first became pets for cavemen, while the greeks used them for hunting and as guards. romans traveled through Europe and brought their dogs with them. these dogs bred with the local dogs, and gradually many different breeds were created.

Dogs are generally classified into seven different breeds.

  • Toy - Chihuahua, Maltese, Pomeranian, Pug.
