Dogs 'guilty behaviour' is inherited from wolf ancestors

Pet pooches are often the first to show signs that they could be in the dog-house.

Arriving home to find a dog with a head hung in shame and a tail between their legs - what experts term an 'apology bow' - is an early warning sign of trouble waiting inside.

But far from being a simple apology, this submissive behaviour - which comes from the pack mentality of their wolf ancestors - is designed to ensure that dogs don't get shunned from the family unit.

Wolf traits and being bread to take down a full grown 1000 pound plus Bull is why Pitt-Bulls need to be outlawed for ownership in the US! Born and Bread to KILL!

Do you really not know that it is actually spell correctly? It may not be how they spell it in the USA but the article is from a paper in the UK. That is how they spell it.

Behavior vs. behaviour
Behavior is the preferred spelling in American English. Behaviour is preferred everywhere else. Other than the spelling, there is no difference between the two words. The spelling distinction extends to all derivatives, including behaviors—behaviours, behavioral—behavioural, and behaviorally—behaviourally.
