Next Episode of Dogs: An Amazing Animal Family is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
In this stunning natural history series, biologist Patrick Aryee takes us on a journey through time to retrace the dog family's rise to power through the twists and turns of its family tree. From the jungles of Brazil, to the prairies of North America and deserts of Africa, he meets the most dangerous and charismatic wild dogs in the natural world. And ultimately he reveals how one of our most feared predators went on to become man's best friend.Patrick reveals amazing stories behind the oldest living carnivores on the planet. It's an epic story that began thirty four million years ago. Through nail-bitingly close encounters, sumptuous wildlife photography, field demos and a CGI family tree - he shows how different members of this family evolved bizarre bodies, intelligent behaviours and tight-knit social groups to thrive in some of the planet's wildest landscapes.
Aryee meet the fastest, strongest and most unusual looking domestic dogs on the planet - all descended from the wild gray wolf. In the Mongolian wilderness, we find the Bankhar, a native dog that protects livestock from predators; then, it's to the deserts of the Middle East to meet the Saluki - speed-demon canines that can reach up to 40 mph. Later, Aryee heads north on a dog-sledding adventure with the sturdy and strong Inuit Sled Dog, and while heading back south, he finds the loyal Newfoundland working among fishermen and the Cattle Dog riding alongside cowboys.
Aryee travels to the Americas, where the first canines evolved more than 30 million years ago. Starting with some playful but clumsy wolf pups, he discovers the traits shared by all members of the wider canine family and reveals why dogs are considered to be more intelligent than solitary predators like cats. Following their evolutionary journey, he meets super-furry foxes emerging from a snowy den, comes face-to-face with a pack of fully grown wolves and, in South America, tracks down the tallest wild dog on the planet, standing at over a meter high and known as a "fox on stilts."
Charting the final stage of the dog's global conquest, Aryee ventures out of the Americas into Asia and Africa, following the canine's centuries-long journey across continents. From red foxes performing great leaps to catch mice deep beneath the snow to bizarre raccoon dogs that steal eggs from birds' nests - this is a story of canine cunning. In Africa, dogs would team up to take on the Big Cats and become the most successful large predators on the savannah. Then, on Namibia's Skeleton Coast, an extraordinary encounter between a Jackal and a huge brown hyena shows how canines used brain over brawn.
