Wolf Dogs

When I wrote this Dogster post about wolf x dog hybrids I completely accepted the fact that wolves and dogs are, taxonomically speaking, the same species.

However, this article makes quite a compelling case for wolves and dogs to actually be considered different species--and even argues that we cannot be sure that gray wolves are the ultimate ancestors of domestic dogs.

Food for thought!
