The dog and the extant gray wolf are sister taxa as modern wolves are not closely related to the wolves that were first domesticated, which implies that the direct ancestor of the dog is extinct.
Dogs and wolves are classified differently, otherwise the species would be either canis lupus or canis familiaris for both.
This is from your source.

It's remotely possible the Dire Wolves aren't extinct...

I love this post for two reasons. 1) You schooled grumpy Schuyler, using his own source.
2) This is the first post I have EVER read from you which has actual information that applies to the topic and isn't just a dumb joke.
