Can domestic dogs survive in a wild environment without any help of humans?

  • If there are feral dogs out there( which there are) than yes they can.

    However, I believe they do need a pack to be more efficient. They can outlast their prey by running for miles, they have an incredible sense of smell, have an omnivores diet( basically they can eat almost anything they put in there mouths), and they're highly adaptable ( which is a major plus in the wild)

  • Can a chihuahua really fend for itself?

    Dogs are carnivores. A chihuahua does not have the speed or bite strength to capture and devour live prey. It would not survive as a herbivore as meat is an important part of its dietary needs. Also, domestic dogs have reduced carnassial shears and their ability to masticate meat is reduced, further stating that they may not survive long enough to reproduce.

  • Pandas bred in captivity cannot survive without the help of humans.

    Clearly any animal dependent on humans are not able to return to the wild without wild training. Except maybe cats though they are known for being lazy, a cat that is born on a farm or anywhere outside where they can find rodents to eat are most likely to survive in the wild. Where as dogs depend on an alpha and would need to be raised by wild wolves if they except them into their pack. The other day i watched a documentry about pandas and how the are almost extinct and are being bred by people in china so that one day they can return to the wild.

  • I suppose they could technically survive... Just like people can technically survive poverty and famine.

    The question though is can they thrive in the wild without humans. The answer is absolutely not! Dogs became a distinct species apart from wolves for the sole fact that they began to scavenge human leftovers! Sure feral dogs can survive on their own but only so long as they have humans that they can scavenge from. They survive but are thin and are in general very poor health.

  • Not for many generations.

    Depending on environment. A large male Rotweiler might survive on squirrels, rodents, but I highly doubt it can continue hunting all the time. If that Rotweiler is released into the Serengeti, it might be eaten within a day by so many other larger predators. Remember even a large male Rotweiler, Pitbull is no match for a young adult Cheetah.

  • Disease and food toxicity would kill dogs in the wild

    Dogs aren't smart enough not to eat grapes, diabetic foods with xylitol, chocolate, turkey skin, etc. There are so many foods that we eat and throw away that would kill dogs. Additionally, disease coupled with the damages that they would incur as the result of eating toxic foods would kill them.

  • Wolfs became dogs to survive.

    Dogs came from wolfs a million years ago because of the environment that their living in.
    They came into the human comunity for taking food and living area.
    When they could survive without people , they migth never became dogs. Also dogs can't live without people because they don't have the body shapes to hunt or survive alone.

  • No. It is not possible.

    I know someone who was going through a divorce and, while she was trying to find a place to live, left her domestic dog with her ex-husband to be. The ex-husband, being angry with her let the dog out of the house and would not let him back in. A neighbor recognized the dog when she found him going through her trash can. She did not know how long the dog had been left out but he had lost a lot of weight. She took him to the vet who was forced to put him down because he was too far gone and dying of starvation. If he couldn't make it in a neighborhood other domestic dogs would not be able to make it in the wild without human involvement.

  • Unless a pack

    Dog are like wolfs, they survive as a pack, not as a individual. Unless you release a pack of dog, if not, i reckon the chance of a single dog surviving the wild is less than 10%. Also, the size and breed of the dog has to be put into consideration as well. Big size dog might be able to defend themselves, but they need to eat more as well. Small size dog like Chihuahua, they can survive with little food. I'm not sure, well, maybe they can survive on insect if times are really bad??

  • No they cant

    Yes, perhaps a big dog like a rottwiler could live out there. But what about all the small dogs out there. A chihuwawa shivers when its hot out because it is cold. What happens when its winter in the forest? How would they possibly survive? Not to mention, what would they eat? They can't hunt things, they are too small and frail.
