Why dogs are cuter than wolvesnature science
There are many reasons why dogs are consider cuter than wolves by humans. One of these is neoteny, or the retention of juvenile traits in an adult animal. Dogs resemble puppies for most of their lives, with their soft fur and floppy ears. Wolves do not neotenize like dogs do; they reach maturity at 2 years old and remain adults for the rest of their life span.
