How can anyone deny that these dogs are proof of evolution?

    Anyone who would deny that is someone who doesn't know what evolution is.

    It is not evolution because these dog breeds are the result of selective breeding in captivity, not the result of adaptations to local environments and natural selection in nature. Dog breeds, however, are a good example that a species is not immutable, which is what creationists claim. They claim that it is not possible for one species to evolve into another in nature, but the difference between 2 dog breeds can be greater than the difference between the coyote and the grey wolf, which are two different species in nature. Therefore it makes it difficult to argue that the coyote could not have evolved from the grey wolf, something that is suggested by DNA and fossil evidence.

    How does that prove evolution. The dog breeds got that way because of selective breeding. The same thing can happen to humans.
