I was requested to share whether dogs have all canine teeth because they are called canines.
No. Dogs have incisors, canines, molars and premolars like any other mammal. The scientific name for a dog is Canis familiaris. "Canis" means "dog" in latin. The word canine comes from the latin word "caninus", meaning "of the dog". The members of the Canis group (dogs, wolves, coyotes) have prominent canine teeth, that adds to the reason for them being called canines. A misconception we might have been having till today is that only dogs are called canines, but all mammals belonging to the Canis group are canines.
