Abel adopting a dog in Super Street Fighter IV

Dogs are domesticated canids which have been selectively bred over millennia for various behaviours, sensory capabilities, and physical attributes. Being the oldest domesticated animal, their long association with people has allowed dogs to be uniquely attuned to human behavior, as well as thrive on a starch-rich diet which would be inadequate for other canid species. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the sobriquet, "man's best friend". Dogs have some appearances in the Final Fight and Street Fighter series.
