A very interesting phenomenon is happening in the city of Moscow, Russia.


Dogs are becoming very intelligent. They are more intelligent than dogs in other
places! According to a study by scientists at the Severtsov Institute of Ecology
and Evolution, there are about 35,000 dogs in Moscow’s streets. Many of these
“street dogs” begin life as pets, then people leave them in the streets. The dogs
haven’t got homes, so they must find food and a place to sleep. Only about 3%
of the dogs survive and they must be very clever to stay alive. They look like
wolves and they aren’t as friendly as dogs in the past. They have got some new
and very unusual skills, too. These skills help them survive.
According to the Severtsov study, there are four different groups of dogs. One
group helps the guards in the city and the guards give them food. Another group
looks for food in the streets. The third group of dogs is wilder than the others.
They eat mice, rats and cats.
The fourth group of dogs is cleverer than all the other groups. These dogs ride
on the metro from place to place and they receive food from travellers. Some
people are more generous than others and the dogs can recognise the difference.
They can also recognise the different metro stations so they can return “home”
at night.
