Almost looks like it is sleeping.






Russian scientists on Monday unveiled a prehistoric puppy, believed to be 18,000 years old, that was found in permafrost in the country's Far East. Discovered last year in a lump of frozen mud near the city of Yakutsk, the puppy is unusually well-preserved.

"This puppy has all its limbs, pelage – fur, even whiskers. The nose is visible. There are teeth. We can determine due to some data that it is a male," Nikolai Androsov, director of the Northern World private museum where the remains are stored, said at the presentation at the Yakutsk's Mammoth Museum which specializes in ancient specimens.

The pup was dubbed "Dogor," a Yakutian word for friend. It appears to have died when it was two months old.

Thanks Joe. 

The dog appears as if it might be “boney” in the torso from that facial shot photo. I am sure someone in Russia said (use your Russian accent now) “Do not allow that dog to be photographed from the side. We do not want the rest of the world to think this little doggy starved to death in Russia. Nothing or no one starves in Russia.” Haha


Those teeth look quite impressive for a puppy.
