Biologists Raymond and Lorna Coppinger propose a dogcentric origin story based in behavioral ecology. They direct their gaze at the three-quarters of the world’s dogs who are not pets, but rather are their own masters—the free-roaming, free-breeding dogs who inhabit the dumps and villages of the world.
