I have seen documentaries on wild dogs.
Wild dogs live and hunt in packs. Packs normally have a dominant male and female, all those born to this pair and close related as members. They are fierce hunters and can subdue even big animals because they hunt together. It is like a family.
We normally domesticate single dog and hence the domesticated dog has no family as such but those who keep a female dog as well it's offspring together, they will behave like the wild dogs at least to some extent.
Since we domesticate single dog, this dog is not normally related to other dogs in the vicinity and hence, this dog is lonely and fights for food if other dogs come in it's normal area.

I think your observation is wrong here. In the wild, the dogs live in packs and there is always the initial fight for supremacy as lead dog and dominant female. If you notice in documentaries, the hierarchy is properly established or immediatte punishment handed out. After this is defined there are no problems. But territories are well guarded and any infiltration from others results in violence and killing. That is the rule of the animal kingdom.
When domesticated, these dogs follow the same tendency if there are more than one. They define their hierarchy and once established live together comfortably. But again the question of guarding territories and any outside infiltration results in fighting for supremacy immediattely.

I am not sure about the authencity of your question or I am not able to catch your question ........but f or a change , know the Inner Peace of life ...not for those who don't smile :) : This is so true If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without alcohol, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, ...Then You Are Probably ......... The Family Dog!

But still men prefer dog because The late you are at home, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

DNA testing suggests an evolutionary split between the modern dog's lineage and the modern wolf's lineage around 100,000 years ago, but no fossil specimens prior to 33,000 years ago have been genetically linked to the modern dog's lineage. Dogs' value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "Man's Best Friend" in the Western world. In some cultures, dogs are also a source of meat.In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.
