What is a Dog?

All dogs are primarily carnivores, with teeth especially adapted for eating meat and gnawing bones. As they were originally hunters, dogs are equipped with acute senses for detecting prey, and have very powerful muscles, allowing them to run at a great pace, with bursts of speed when necessary. All canines walk on their toes (rather than on the soles of their feet like bears). Which allows then greater agility-often an important factor when they are tackling prey much larger than themselves.Dogs also evolved the ability to work together in a pack, thus overcoming the problem of hunting larger animals.
