Dogs have been man's best friend for an estimated 29,000 years, ever since they were first domesticated from an ancient and extinct species of canine closely related to wolves. Since then, dogs have been put to work, worshipped as deities, relegated to lives as royal playthings, and have met all sorts of other fates.

Today, there are 360 officially recognized distinct breeds of dogs, of all shapes, sizes, and temperaments.
