Moscow’s stray dogs

Hello,

I have found in the Internet an article over Moscow’s stray dogs.

In Moscow gives 30,000 to 35,000 stray dogs (about 84 dogs per square mile), while the grey wolf population for the whole of Russia is about 50,000 to 60,000.

Some 500 strays that live in the metro stations, especially during the colder months, but only about 20 have learned how to ride the trains. This happened gradually, first as a way to broaden their territory.

My son got a dog from a Russian rescue, he also does food runs from Finland, taking dried dog food to the shelters in Russia. There's not much choice of proper dog food in Russia as most dogs get scraps.

Thanks for this link Joerg, its a very interesting article. I especially though that the following quote was very interesting bearing in mind recent threas on this forum about pack leaders and dominance/aggression.

“The second difference between stray dogs and wolves is that the dogs, on average, are much less aggressive and a good deal more tolerant of one another,” says Poyarkov. Wolves stay strictly within their own pack, even if they share a territory with another. A pack of dogs, however, can hold a dominant position over other packs and their leader will often “patrol” the other packs by moving in and out of them. His observations have led Poyarkov to conclude that this leader is not necessarily the strongest or most dominant dog, but the most intelligent – and is acknowledged as such. The pack depends on him for its survival"

Seems so obvious to me that brains are better than brawn for a leader.

How very interesting this article is! Thanks for posting it Jeorg.

Had no idea strays were common in Moscow and then to learn that your son delivers food between Finland and Russian shelters feldandjeack, well, the kid has done you proud, truly. :)

It is fascinating that these Moscow strays do not seem to pose any danger to people. The article points out the strays show no affection to humans and are in fact wary of them, but they don't seem to attack.

Thanks again Jeorg. Good sleuthing!

Hello,

I have found this informations over a pet taxi on the web site from EDP24.

Quote:

"A new taxi for pets has taken to the roads of North Norfolk.
A local dog club has set up the “cabbie” service which mainly ferries dogs and cats to vets and kennels, but is also linked to a dog-walking service.

The back of a Nissan van has compartments that can take collie and spaniel sized dogs on the upper deck, and larger Labradors on the bottom. A bigger space behind the driver’s seat can a big deerhound.
Animal Magic, based in the North Walsham area, does training classes and provides a dog walking service for people who are at work, away from home, or unwell. .... ... " END

Hello,

I have found informations from the KC over registration statistics for 2010 in the internet.

date: Jan 24, 2011
Quote: "The Kennel Club’s registration statistics for 2010, released today, show that ‘handbag’ dog breeds – so-called since celebrities popularised certain breeds by carrying them in their bags as fashion accessories – have rapidly increased, including:
• Pug - 5,726 registrations in 2010, 20 percent more than in 2009, and a 170 percent increase since 2005.
• Miniature Smooth-Haired Dachshund - made it into the top 20 for the first time with 2,802 registrations, 12 percent up on 2009 and 72 percent up on 2005.
• The Smooth Coat Chihuahua - 2,796 registrations in 2010, 47 percent more than in 2009 and a staggering 350 percent more than in 2005.

This bucks a general trend which sees dog registrations down by three percent on 2005, though they did climb by 5 percent from the number in 2009. In total, the Kennel Club registered 257,062 pedigree puppies during 2010.

.... ....
.... ....

Meanwhile many of the Kennel Club’s Native Vulnerable Breeds, which are endangered because they have less than 300 registrations a year, have continued to decline. This includes the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, which dropped by 42 percent to 46 registrations and the Skye Terrier which dropped by 51 percent to 75 registrations.

.... ....
.... ....

Kennel Club top ten pedigree breeds, based on 2010 registration statistics:
Breed 2010 registrations 2009 registrations Celebrity Owner 2009 rank
Labrador Retriever 44,099 40,943 Gwyneth Paltrow 1
Cocker Spaniel 23,744 22,211 Charlize Theron 2
English Springer Spaniel 13,988 12,700 George W Bush 3
German Shepherd Dog 10,364 10,338 Shania Twain 4
Staffordshire Bull Terrier 8,663 8,746 Vin Diesel 6
Border Terrier 8,383 8,214 Andy Murray 7
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel 8,154 8,884 Courtney Cox Arquette 5
Golden Retriever 7,911 7,804 Renee Zellweger 8
Pug 5,726 4,769 Jessica Alba 13
Boxer 5,699 5,947 Jodie Foster 9

Hello,

I have found a interesting article about the oldest dog skull in the German magazine "Der Hund".

The skull is 33,000 years old of a "Incipient Dog" from the Altai Mountains of Siberia.

Hello,

I have found a article about genetic tests, the tests confirm that the Asian region south of the Yangtze River is where people most likely began domesticating wolves.

So cruel!
It is indeed true that the number of stray dogs are increasing. I wonder why owners left their dogs in the streets. I found one and bring her home. She's an american staffordshire a.k.a. pitbull. At first, my sis disagreed of taking her in but at with the her looks. She simply is helpless so my sis was convinced. After a week, after healing some wounds and regaining the coat. She looks good and really friendly. If only owners would see how this dogs really are. They won't leave them elsewhere.

Hello,

I have found this interesting article in the internet.

Citation / Link: www.sciencemag.org/conten...160/785.summary

'That dogs evolved from gray wolves is well accepted but there's much debate about where and when man's best friend was first domesticated. Previous genetic studies suggested a Middle Eastern or East Asian origin, but controversial new research that makes use of complete mitochondrial genomes of ancient canids as well as modern ones indicates that the first dogs come from Europe. The work finds that today's pooches are more closely related to ancient canids than to modern wolves, indicating that the dog's wolf ancestor no longer exists. Others take issue with the results because none of the ancient samples come from the other putative sites of origin. '
