part_wild_coverOf all the creatures with which humans share the planet, few have demonstrated (or been forced to) the physical variation of Canis lupus. As C. lupus it is the Grey Wolf, as C. lupus dingo it is the wild dog of the Australian outback, and as  C. lupus familiaris it is everything from a one-hundred-seventy pound Bull Mastiff to my ten pound Havanese.

But what happens when its wild form is bred to a domestic form? Ceiridwen Terrill has spent years both researching as well as discovering first hand the answers that arise from this question and recounts them in her book Part Wild – the paperback edition of which has recently been released by Simon & Schuster.
