Default 9,400-year-old dog found, earliest found in Americas

Actually a 9,400 yr old bone fragment was found. Caution: just where it was found might be disturbing.

How interesting! I wonder if they'll be able to model what the dog might have looked like, or even better, get any DNA to compare to wolves/modern dogs/coyotes. I doubt it, but hey, could happen!

OK, I'm not startled to hear that, but I'd love to know if it was related to today's dogs or what.

Hopefully we'll be able to learn more when the paper is published. Even if the full text isn't free, one of the science news services might do an article with more details.

Why? They had to eat and dogs are easy to breed (unfortunately).

Don't see why not.
