Russian Silver Fox Breeding Program shows how genetics influenced behavior and traits.

Really interesting program about the Russian Silver Fox breeding project- in 3 generations they noticed big changes in behavior and even in the physical appearance of the foxes. In other words they have probably reproduced the method of changing from wolves to dogs that humanity may have used in pre-history.
