Synopsis

Is My Dog a Wolf? How Your Pet Compares to Its Wild Cousin by Jenni Bidner

He's wagging his tail, fetching the Frisbee and eager to get stroked - in short, Fido's living up to his title as man's best friend . But the domesticated dog's got a special secret: in many ways he's really a lot like a wolf. Using amazing close-up images, she shot inside a real wolf lair, as well as museum-quality historical pictures and illustrations, award-winning author and photographer Jenni Binder compares the pet pup with his wild ancestor. Why did dogs become dogs and wolves stay wolves? Should you ever have a wolf in the house - or a hybrid? And exactly why do dogs like to lick your face? Along the way, Bidner debunks popular myths about wolves and provides a true and fascinating look at their behaviour.
