Scientists have been trying to figure out where dogs were first domesticated and a study published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences which the scientists say is the "largest-ever survey of worldwide canine genetic diversity," indicates that it may have happened first in Central Asia, specifically in what is modern day Nepal and Mongolia.
It is thought that dogs evolved from Eurasian grey wolves at least 15,000 years ago, but the leap from roaming packs of wild wolves to them becoming mans best friend, little is known of where this first happened and how.
“The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you,but he will make a fool of himself, too.”
― Samuel Butler
