The Lone Wolf’s Descendants

For centuries man has respected the canine species and incorporated them into our social culture in many different facets. Our canine companions have been assisting humans in areas of hunting, protection, and most of all companionship. Human intervention has played a crucial role in the prevalence of so many different pedigrees.  Clearly, dogs will be around human culture for a long time, but with threats of violence towards humans we must take precautions to ensure that our species’ can coexist in harmony. Through organizational efforts and community outreach, I believe a future with dogs and humans enjoying each other, without the threat of violent outbreaks, is a reality for the future of this world.

Dogs can be found across the United States. The diversity amongst dog owners is truly fascinating because there is only one requirement in being a true dog owner, that is being human. Dogs are common amongst every demographic regardless of race, nationality, socioeconomic status, age, or gender. They are the perfect companion for our species. Many studies have shown that owning a dog can be therapeutic and extremely beneficial for one’s health. Whenever we are spending time and making a physical connection, in the form of petting and grooming, reactions in the brain cause feelings of happiness. This interaction is one of the fascinating examples of the complexity of biological interaction experienced in the natural world. Similarly fascinating is the interaction between the two species when the canine turns violent in an attack against the human. Because of the range in dog breeds from size to obvious level of aggressiveness, it is easy to forget that every dog descends from the mighty wolf. The core of every dog’s DNA descends from the pure predatory blood. In 2016 there were 31 dog related fatalities within the United States. In most cases, the victim was either a child, female, or both. In the event that anyone should experience a brutal dog bite that causes tremendous stress financially and physically, it would be wise to seek an attorney like those with the Able Law Firm. Skilled, attentive help can greatly reduce long term stress and improve morale for a focused recovery.  

To conclude, dogs are a highly intelligent species that coexist with humans on the earth. They have been introduced to the social structures of humans since ancient times, and because of human interaction they have forcibly evolved into countless different pedigrees we see today. In certain cases they can become violent with humans to the point that the person suffers from severe injuries or dies. Through combined efforts that include further educating the population on the dangers of animal abuse and how it alters the dog’s psychology and similar prevention campaigns I am certain dog bite fatalities could become a thing of the past.
