Hooked On... Dogs

Dogs have been man’s best friend for over 12,000 years. From the extinct dire wolf to your dog playing fetch in the backyard, dogs and humans have always been companions. Bone up on these dog facts below!

Did you know? Dogs

  1. Dire wolves are not only from a popular book series! They lived in California during the Ice Age. They were so massive that they could take down woolly mammoths and other large Ice Age animals.
  2. Dogs do not sweat, so they have to cool down by panting. The saliva evaporating from their tongue and mouth helps reduce their body heat.
  3. In ancient Rome, they had signs that said Cave canem, which means “Beware of dog.” Just like the signs you see today!
  4. Greyhounds are the fastest dogs on Earth. They can run at speeds up to 40 mph.
  5. The Shetland sheepdog’s sense of smell is so good that it can seek out a lamb buried in the snow.
