Note: Domesticated species of Canis, formerly believed to be descended from Canis lupus, gray wolves; however, recent studies suggest that gray wolves and domestic dogs instead have a common ancestor, now extinct. Dogs come in a variety of shapes, and sizes and over 400 distinct breeds. All domestic or feral dogs are descended from a single common ancestral species. For more than 12,000 years, it has lived with humans as a hunting companion, protector, and as herders and guardians of sheep, goats, and cattle. Today, dogs are employed as aids to the blind and disabled, or for police work. In Western art, dogs have generally come to symbolize faithfulness and loyalty, however, in other cultures they can symbolizes a varity of traits, ranging from unclean to seducer.

Additional Notes:
Chinese (traditional) ..... 犬屬的馴養物種,是狼的後裔,而在某些分類法中被視為亞種。狗依不同外型與體型,有超過400個不同的品種,所有馴養或野生的狗都是起源於狼或灰狼。此物種已與人類同住超過一萬兩千年,其角色為狩獵的伙伴、保護者與作為牧者以及綿羊、山羊、牛的守衛。現今,狗被用來協助盲人與殘障者或警方的勤務。在西方藝術中,狗通常象徵忠貞與忠誠,然而在其他文化中,他們也是許多特性的象徵,像是不潔、引誘等。
