Dogs of Latin America

November 9, 2020

15,000 years ago dogs accompanied the first human settlers across the Bering Strait. These dogs flourished alongside the incredible civilizations Indigenous people built across North, Central, and South America. 

Although those ancient dog breeds have all but disappeared their legacy remains in the form of myth, folklore, and archeological evidence. 

In this episode we take a quick jaunt back in time and talk about the different dog breeds that once existed and the way ancient Mesoamerican people utilized their canine companions.
