Our ancestors also weren't in anything like a SHTF scenario, at least never for an extended period of time, I dont think.
Honestly, I do not think they will be worth the resources and effort to train. And if they arent trained properly, they will drain your supplies and
possibly morale, and most likely get you killed.
I would only even remotely consider this if I had land away from any city/town, and already had a large stockpile of goods. Otherwise get it out of
your head, it will get you killed.
Tardacus has a damn good point about the comparison of senses though. It really depends on the scenario. I am in some small city now, with no dog, so
I would not even think about trying to find one on the way out. What the hell would I do anyways? Snag someones trained dog, that would probably kill
me? A currently very useless and compromising puppy? There is no way I could manage that.
