Ever wonder how these different breeds of dogs came to be?

So, there’s no need to speculate any longer; this artist provides conclusive proof. In this day and age, it’s common knowledge that canines are descended from wolves. But many breeds don’t resemble wolves at all, so what gives? The husky is the only dog breed that even remotely resembles a wolf.

Because of this, webcomic artist Ben Hed did a tonne of digging and finally found the canine progenitors of all the different breeds. No need to double-check his scientific accuracy either. The prolific Ben Hed, creator of beloved works like “Pixie” and “Brutus,” shows no signs of slowing down.

I always thought it was a hot dog, but a ferret makes much more sense.

Even though canines and wolves are presumed to be related, I find it amusing that some dog breeds resemble wolves more than others do. As far as appearances go, I haven’t spent much time with any of these breeds, but they all seem interesting in their own ways. I enjoy maintaining a balance between one-off strips and ongoing stories. Since I’ve been stocking up on comics (to read later this summer when I start working at a Bible camp), I’ve learned that the vast majority of the upcoming comics will feature a single protagonist.
