National Geographic Special..”And Man Created Dog”

On August 8, the National Geographic Channel will debut the special, “And Man Created Dog,” a look at how our canine companions have evolved from wolf to man’s best friend.

The two-hour special traces man’s complex relationship with dogs, beginning almost 100,000 years ago, and ending with today’s varied breeds.

The special shows a fascinating way how man has gotten involved in the breeding of dogs and selecting them for specific traits, and how the many breeds of dogs we see now are genetically linked to wolves.
