Number of dogs in the world

How many dogs are there in the world?

More than 5 million

It is extremely difficult to obtain the number of dogs in certain countries.  Anyway, statistics show that there are more than 5 million dogs all over the world.  Keep in mind the fact that in 2001 there were 4 million dogs.  Not too many people know that the domestic dog is the 18-31,000 year old descendant of a now extinct European Wolf.  Needless to say, most breeds of dog are at most a few hundred years old.  An important study dates domestication from 14,000 years ago to more than 31,700 years ago.

This fact is verified on : June 16, 2014.
