Dogs, friends of the human being since the Paleolithic

It seems that when the man migrated from East Asia to America he already carried the dog with him. This happened 15,000 years ago, in the Upper Palaeolithic.

In addition, analyzing the mitochondrial DNA of dogs and wolves, they have concluded that the dog was born in East Asia. It seems that the genetic richness of dogs in East Asia is much greater than that of Europe, America and West Asia. This would suppose that of the dogs that were created in East Asia, some breeds spread all over the world and many other breeds remained there.
