The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris or Canis familiaris) is a domesticated canid which has been selectively bred for millennia for various behaviors, sensory capabilities, and physical attributes. Because of their close relationships with humans, dogs are common characters in fiction. Non-fiction about dogs includes memoirs by pet owners, advice for raising dogs, and scientific investigations of dog domestication and psychology.
