Dogs are humans’ oldest companions, DNA shows | BBC News

A recent study proves that dogs are human’s oldest companions based on their DNA. An international team analyzed the whole genomes of 27 ancient dog remains and found that genetic traces of these dogs retained from some of the breeds today. Greger Larson, co-author of the study said, “dogs are our oldest and closest animal partner. Using DNA from ancient dogs is showing us just how far back our shared history goes and will ultimately help us understand when and where this deep relationship began.”
