The Africanis has recently been recognised as a breed that descended from the dogs depicted in Egyptian murals (see Johan Gallant, The Story of the African Dog, Durban, 2002). They are the product of natural selection and physical and mental adaptation to environmental conditions over centuries, rather than the selective breeding by humans that determines all domestic dog breeds today. As such they are one of the few remaining natural dog races in the world.
