Based on studies of dog genetics, scientists conclude, dogs were gradually domesticated from wild wolves for hunting purposes. Research also shows that the first wild wolf domestication appeared more than 33 millennia ago. Later, this activity was introduced into Europe. This has refuted the argument that domestic dogs were purebred from the European wolf breed more than 10,000 years ago according to previous studies.
Accordingly, Professor Peter Savolainen and his associates of the Royal Swedish Institute of Technology conducted genome analysis of 58 current dog breeds from around the world, including wild gray wolves, The dog is native to Southeast Asia and Northeast Asia, Nigeria, as well as the Afghan Hound and the Siberian Husky.
The results of DNA analysis showed that the breeds of dogs in Southeast Asia possess the most diverse genome and the closest resemblance to the gray wolf. Professor Savolainen concluded that the origin of the current domestic dog originated in Southeast Asia more than 33,000 years ago.
