'The body of the puppy was found on 13 August not far from Tumat village during our expedition,' he said.The aim of this summer's expedition 'was to search for the traces of human activity there, to seek evidence that the first puppy was a dog tamed by ancient people.' In other words, to find evidence of the owners of what is known as Tumat Dog.

Four years ago, at the same spot, brothers Yury and Igor Gorokhov along with friend Aiaal Tomsky - all mammoth bone hunters - found the first ancient puppies, believed to be a three month old female, its bones, heart, lungs and stomach intact.

Both puppies were sealed in the permafrost which led to them being mummified.

In August 2014, Dr Mietje Germonpre, from the palaeontology department of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, travelled to Yakutsk to see the remains of the first puppy.

She told Yakutsk Vecherny at the time: 'After studying the mummy and looking at the measurements of the skulls belonging to ancient dogs and wolves, I can say this find is unique. In other museums around the world you will only find the remains of adult dogs, but this is a puppy.

It will help to save the environment of the remains for further research.

We plan to study microorganisms in the soil that covers the carcass.'The find of the new remains was pure luck,' said research fellow Fedorov. But having worked there for a full hour, at the beginning of the second hour, some two metres away from the first find, and down the rock, we saw the front paws and the head.' The surface layer had slipped in the past four years and it is likely the permafrost tomb of the second puppy was in exactly the same place as the first.This means it is likely the second puppy was a relative, even a sibling, of the first.They died in a landslide close to the river, it is thought.Scientists came back here this summer in search of evidence of ancient human activity, but found an unexpected bonus.Scientists may also have discovered telltale signs of human activity in the same remote site as they seek to research the theory that these canines were tamed by ancient man.
