Dogs came to North America with the earliest humans

Published February 24, 2021


CBS News covered research led by Charlotte Lindqvist on how ancient dogs made their way to North America. The research reports on the oldest confirmed remains of a dog in the Americas. “Because dogs are a proxy for human occupation, our data help provide not only a timing but also a location for the entry of dogs and people into the Americas,” said Lindqvist.
