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.
