Eyewitness: Dog highlights the evolutionary history of man's best friend -- from their domestication, anatomy, and behavior, for both domestic and wild breeds including wolves, jackals, and foxes. See the oldest-known remains of a domestic dog, an amazing tree-climbing fox, how a dog swims, a fox with bat ears, and a husky in a sled harness. Learn why dogs and wolves hunt in packs, how dogs "talk" with ears and tails, the basics of looking after a pet dog, and how dogs were specially taught to help humans.
