A recent discovery of a 14,000 year old dog fossil has reopened a debate as to when we were able to breed wolves into dogs.  Would you believe 31,700 years ago?  Some scientists say yes and others no.  Most say 15,000 years ago based on the size of teeth found in fossils.  There is general agreement that domesticated dogs existed in Europe, Asia and perhaps northern Africa 14,000 years ago.
