The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris or Canis familiaris) is a subspecies of the gray wolf (Canis lupus). As the first animal to be domesticated (15,000-33,000 years ago) since then it has played an important role in the history of human civilization. In hunter-gatherer societies dogs hunted together with people and protected them. Nowadays they also assist in helping police and military, and aiding handicapped patients. Apart from that, dogs are kept worldwide as pets. Approximately 400 separate breeds are known, including those as diminutive as the Chihuahua and as massive as the Irish wolfhound.

The genome sequence was released in 2005. However, the effort to complete the annotation of the protein-coding and non-protein-coding gene sets is still going on to fully exploit this model organism. The domestic dog is studied for genetics to decipher phenotype/genotype relationships as well as for human and veterinary medicine. The dog genome has 39 chromosomes containing 2.4 Gb and 25,000 protein-coding genes.
