The strange facts you do not know about dogs


Dogs are favorite pets around the world

It estimated that there are more than 525 million dogs on the ground today. Here are some facts about our beloved friends

Historians differ about when and where people began to breed dogs for the first time

It is believed that the first dogs are wolves who have established themselves and were first attracted to the first sites of human settlement areas

The first identifiable dog species date back to about 9000 BC

This species may have been the type of greyhound used in hunting

Procrastination of dogs

When a dog died in ancient Egypt, its owners, if they could, did not hesitate to work with the same care as a family member

In addition, his friends were shaving their eyebrows, a sign of extreme sadness

In ancient China, the belief that dogs were gods, and their blood so scared that they used to seal faith and loyalty

In the Americas, Mayan tribes kept dogs as pets, but they were also associated with gods

It said that the dogs were leading the souls of the dead through a watershed called Zebalba

When the spirit reached this underworld, the dog helped instruct the deceased to cross the challenges posed by the poles of Zepalba in order to reach the Commission

Age of the dog from his face

Dog breeds with sharp pointed faces usually live longer than flat-faced dogs, such as bulldogs and Asian dogs

The type of education that is used to make a dog’s face flat can lead to many health problems, including skin, eye and breathing problems, as well as poor heat tolerance

The longer the dog’s nose, the more effective it is in the internal cooling

Toxic foods

Dogs should protect from eating some human foods even if they are small amounts

 such as grapes and raisins, because they contain an unknown substance that causes renal failure of dogs

Macadamia nuts can damage the nervous system of the dog. Onions and garlic may also damage red blood cells

As well as chocolate, avocado and alcohol, as well as anything with caffeine, as it can be fatal to the dog

Power of smell

To put this judgment in perspective, a person can detect the smell of a teaspoon of sugar in a cup of coffee, while the dog can detect a teaspoon of sugar in two Olympic-sized swimming pools

Some dogs said to have smelt the bodies of the dead under water and could have smelt natural gas deposits 40 feet below the ground, so they could smell cancer in humans

Read the minds

Dogs can read minds, not literally, but they record excellent signs of body language reading. For example, a study during which a therapeutic substance was hidden under one of two inverted buckets. A person behind the buckets stops to give several body signals, like pointing to one of the buckets or leaning toward them

When the experiment conducted on chimpanzees, or children aged 3 years, they were almost unable to interpret the body signals until they learned what they meant, while the dogs could immediately understand and distinguish the intended bucket
