In fact, American dog breeds trace their ancestry to ancient Asia, Savolainen says. These native breeds have 30 percent or less modern replacement by European dogs, he says. “Our results confirm that American dogs are a remaining part of the indigenous American culture, which underscores the importance of preserving these populations,” he says. Savolainen’s research group, in cooperation with colleagues in Portugal, compared mitochondrial DNA from Asian and European dogs, ancient American archaeological samples, and American dog breeds, including Chihuahuas, Peruvian hairless dogs and Arctic sled dogs. They traced the American dogs’ ancestry back to East Asian and Siberian dogs, and also found direct relations between ancient American dogs and modern breeds.

On the one hand, we celebrate anyone who has compassion and empathy for an animal, Cartwright said. Where it becomes conflictual for us is: What are we doing with the animals already here in Canada and can we get that problem solved? Even those concerned about the impact of foreign rescue dogs in B.C. and Canada concede its a complicated matter. For one thing, nobody knows how many foreign rescue dogs are arriving. No federal or provincial agency keeps tabs on furry immigrants. Foreign rescue dogs are becoming more popular in this province, according to B.C.-based rescue groups.

With patience and compassion, Kara slowly earned Girlie’s trust. It was apparent to Kara, who has two agility dogs, that Girlie possessed an innate desire to be around humans, even though her feral nature made her wary. A Blind Lab And Her Seeing-Eye Chihuahua Seek A Home As Girlie began to reach maturity, Kara worried about the dog getting impregnated by some of the intact male dogs she saw running around. She doubled her efforts to find Girlie a home, but experienced difficulty finding an adopter. With two dogs of her own, as well as a cat, and lacking the appropriate accommodations to introduce a wild dog into home life, Kara herself could not take the dog in.

Accused dog shooter sentenced to nearly 23 years in prison for federal firearms violations

Raymone Clements, 42, fought back tears and expressed sympathy for the bull mastiff, which survived two gunshot wounds.

Clements professed to being a dog lover and denied being the shooter, placing the blame on a friend. “I’m sorry about the dog. I really am,” Clements told U.S. District Judge Donald Nugent during a half-hour sentencing hearing in federal court.
