Origins[ edit ] Hyenas originated in the jungles of Miocene Eurasia 22 million years ago, when most early feliform species were still largely arboreal. The first ancestral hyenas were likely similar to the modern banded palm civet ; one of the earliest hyena species described, Plioviverrops , was a lithe, civet-like animal that inhabited Eurasia 20—22 million years ago, and is identifiable as a hyaenid by the structure of the middle ear and dentition.
The lineage of Plioviverrops prospered, and gave rise to descendants with longer legs and more pointed jaws, a direction similar to that taken by canids in North America. American Museum of Natural History The descendants of Plioviverrops reached their peak 15 million years ago, with more than 30 species having been identified. Unlike most modern hyena species, which are specialised bone-crushers, these dog-like hyenas were nimble-bodied, wolfish animals; one species among them was Ictitherium viverrinum, which was similar to a jackal.
The dog-like hyenas were very numerous; in some Miocene fossil sites, the remains of Ictitherium and other dog-like hyenas outnumber those of all other carnivores combined. The decline of the dog-like hyenas began 5—7 million years ago during a period of climate change, which was exacerbated when canids crossed the Bering land bridge to Eurasia. One species, Chasmaporthetes ossifragus , managed to cross the land bridge into North America, being the only hyena to do so.
Chasmopothertes managed to survive for some time in North America by deviating from the cursorial and bone-crushing niches monopolised by canids, and developing into a cheetah -like sprinter. Most of the dog-like hyenas had died off by 1.

A word about selling puppies online; it’s actually better to avoid this practice. You really want to meet your buyers in person and see how they interact with the pups before you agree to sell to them. How to Screen Prospective Buyers Once the word is out that you have dogs for sale, all kinds of people will come calling. The challenge as a responsible breeder is to weed out the unsuitable candidates and find people that have the time, means and desire to give one of your pups a happy, lifelong home.
A prospective buyer should: First, consider the average market price for your breed. This will help you determine a baseline price for your puppies. Factor in the price of any veterinary care the puppy has received, including initial checkup, dewclaw removal, vaccinations, testing for genetic conditions, etc.
The quality of the puppy’s conformation is another factor that helps determine its price.
