Dogs in Antiquity: Anubis to Cerberus

The Origin of the Domestic Dog

Douglas J. Brewer, A. A. Phillips, and Terence Clark

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Unlike cats which have remained almost uniform in shape throughout their history, dogs have developed into a myriad of different breeds, ranging from the diminutative Chihuahua to the massive Irish Wolfhound. This book traces the origins of the domestic dog from its first beginnings as a wolf and then explores how the many varieties came about.
