I woulda thought it was the other way around..or at least a 50/50 lol!

Quote :

Dogs are now so dependent upon people that they fail certain basic intelligence tests that wolves and wild dogs ace, according to new research.

The findings provide evidence that humans, through domestication of canines, have caused dogs to lose their non-social problem-solving skills. The loss in skills appears to be genetically 'hardwired' into dogs, explaining why homeless dogs struggle to survive.
