8000 years old rock paintings of dog found in Saudi Arabia
The world's first images of dogs are found on 8,000-year- old rocks in Saudi Arabia. Archaeologists have uncovered the image of a hunter drawing his bow surrounded by a pack of 13 dogs, two of which appear to be tethered, carved into the ancient sandstone. The find, made in the Arabian Desert, is thought to be the oldest ever depiction of a dog, as well as such restraints being used to control them. Until now, the earliest evidence came from a wall painting in Egypt which is believed to date back around 5,500 years.
