    There seems to be differing info on this, but from what I understand they as odd as it may seem exactly the same animal...

    Thoughts

    dogs are an inbred, inferior set of sub-breeds of Wolves. Wolves righteously kill dogs on sight. However, to the chagrin of wolves, dogs and Wolves can still produce viable offspring. Hence they are the same genus. I hear dogs taste okay, I would never eat one of the filthy stinking things. Wolves as wild animals are okay, kinda cool even.

    Do you know how long a snake can slither around after it's head is chopped off?

    That’s right, snakes are more entertaining than dogs. And quieter.

    That question depends on if you are talking genetics. Phenotypic, behavior or other.

    In that case its dependant on if you want to take a lumping or a splitting approach, with taxonomists on both sides. "species" as a concept is a purely human invention that is very very fluid in actual practice.
