I felt that dogs are products of unnatural transmutation on wolves to gain dominance over them. Humans are indeed fiendish.

It's called selective breeding, not transmutation.

The gradual tranformation from wolves into dogs is just an example of one species that has undergone human alteration, selective breeding has been used on every farm animal you can imagine as well as most pets.

It isn't unnatural, as has been said, the choice for certain genes, or selective breeding is natural (to a degree), and has been done for thousands of years, there is no "transmutation" involved, it is simply a shift in the genes.

I know of selective breeding but even at that rate a species cannot have changes so drastics. Not to mention their odd submissive nature.

It is a perfectly normal change both in physical characteristics and behaviors. There have been scientific experiments done in Russia that show that when raised in captivity wolves take on a dog-like appearance and attitude within two generations.

It is also theorized now that humans didn't domesticate wolves, certainly not in order to have dominence over them. Rather, the evidence suggests that wolves came to live with men because men were a source of steady food and shelter. So it might be more correct to say that wolves domesticated humans.

It is not that dramatic, the shift from wolf to dog occured over thousands of years, it is not only likely, but proven that this is the case.

Saying dogs are unnatural is like saying cats,deer etc are as well. Every life form on earth goes through a form of evolution or mutation. Dogs are as normal as wolves. I'd rather have a dog for a pet than a wild animal.

Yi, first of all, dogs were not all bred from one type of wolf. Breeding a wolf with a wolf gets a wolf! To imagine that all dogs were bred from wolves is ridiculous. Humans would choose a pair of wolves with different characteristics, and the result would be cubs unlike either parent. Such selective breeding over a few thousand years has resulted in the enormous variety of dog.
But make no mistake; every dog is a wolf! All the instincts of a wolf are still there.
You ask, why are they so submissive? Because they are pack animals; and pack animals follow a leader, usually an Alpha male.
The owner of a dog becomes the Alpha male of the pack.
Dogs can be very friendly, and seem to be submissive. But beware! A dog can revert back to a savage wolf in seconds!

A very good book on this subject is "The Wolf In Your Living Room" by Desmond Morriss.

As a matter of fact on the eastern seaboard those few wolves left are mating with coyotes creating a new hybrid. perfectly natural. And there is a fad in Russia currently to domesticate foxes. In fifty years shall a domesticated fox be a fox or should it be given another name?
