It is said that dogs come from a creature similar to a wolf called 'Tomarctus' ("father of dogs") which roamed about many years ago. Dogs first became pets for cavemen, while the Greeks used them for hunting and as guards. Romans traveled through Europe and brought their dogs with them. These dogs bred with the local dogs and gradually many different breeds were created.
