    Default Taino Dogs?

    Can anyone tell me if the pre Columbium Taino Indians had dogs? I was surprised to see in a museum that exhibited a typical Taino setting, a few dogs in the corner. I always thought that the Spanish settlers introduced dogs here.

    Default Yes, there were. And they were mute. *DC*

    Their decendants are called "Vira Latas"

    Default Wrong!!

    According to the accounts of the time, there were dogs before the Spaniards arrived, those were small dogs that couldn't bark. I can't recall much about it, but that always stuck to me. There are not descendants of those dogs. I would pressume that they are extinct.
