Chuck Hooper had doubts at first about buying him because his wife, Marcy, was not really a dog lover but finally he purchased the dog because he was very impressed with the energy and agility of the dog. Hooper himself had an athletic built and professionally also he was fortunate to be the Zonal Sales Manager of a chemical company. Life was going well but one day, Hooper met with an accident.

The English word dog comes from Middle English dogge, from Old English docgaa "powerful dog breed".

Canis is a Latin word meaning dog,  and under this genus he listed the dog-like carnivores including domestic dogs, wolves, and jackals. He classified the domestic dog as Canis familiaris and on the next page as a separate species he classified the wolf as Canis lupus.
Canis familiaris is used for domestic dogs, although taxonomically it should probably be synonymous with Canis lupus. Christopher Wozencraft listed under the wolf Canis lupus what he proposed to be two subspecies: Although this may stretch the subspecies concept, it retains the correct allocation of synonyms.
They also disagree with Crowther, based on the overlap between dogs and dingoes in their morphology, in their ability to easily hybridize with each other, and that they show the signs of domestication by both having a cranium of smaller capacity than their progenitor, the wolf.
Given that Canis familiaris Linnaeus, has date priority over Canis dingo Meyer,they regard the dingo as a junior taxonomic synonym for the dog Canis familiaris.
Tedford propose that the dog could be classified as Canis lupus familiaris under the Biological Species Concept because the dog can interbreed with the gray wolf Canis lupusand Canis familiaris under the Evolutionary Species Concept because the dog has commenced down a separate evolutionary pathway to the gray wolf.

Domestic dogs often display the remnants of countershadinga common natural camouflage pattern. A countershaded animal will have dark coloring on its upper surfaces and light coloring below,  which reduces its general visibility.
