A 12,000 Year Old Puppy Was Unearthed In Perfect Condition

Archaeologists have discovered a puppy that existed 12,000 years ago. Its mummy is found in Siberia's permafrost and is still in perfect condition. Scientists are assuming the puppy is a sibling of the world's oldest mummified dog that was found four years ago nearby. This discovery gives the chances to believe human beings domesticated the dogs even thousands of years ago.

The unearthed puppy is thought to be killed by the landslide on the beach of River Syalakh. The owner of the dog might have been the woolly mammoth hunter, scientists say. Only the remains of adult dogs were found before this, and this is the first time any puppy from ancient time is discovered.
