What was the first animal to become a pet?

    It’s widely accepted that dogs were the first domesticated animals kept by humans. Animal domestication of dogs began in the ancient Middle East, the same place where agriculture (domestication of plants) and civilization (domestication of society) began, further linking all of these key events together.

    Archaeological evidence gives credence to the idea that dogs were the first domesticated animals. The oldest dog remnants stem from 12,000 years ago in the Middle East. It is theorized that packs of wolves followed humans as they hunted so that they could feed on some of the carcasses (when humans were hunter-gatherers, rather than agriculturalists). A smaller-sized wolf group may have become the first pets at around the time when agriculture sprang up.
