The ancestors of Alopekis are the primitive canines that appeared in Greece during the proto-Hellenic period of the Pelasgoi people. Discoveries exist as far back as the Paleolithic age settlements in Thessaly. Alluded to by the old Greeks as ""alopecis"" (small and fox-like). Comparable canines have been portrayed on ancient Greek sculptures and models along with other archeological finds. The Alopekis happens to appear normally in the overall Greek stray street populaces, although they are being bred carefully now. At some point of time, Alopekis and Small Greek Domestic Dog were viewed as different sorts of a similar breed. This has since changed and provisional standards, guidelines have been composed for each breed since both varieties are consistent with type. In terms of numbers, the Alopekis is less common than the Small Greek Domestic Dog and despite that fact the two varieties would in all probability be the easiest and most likely breeds to be exported from Greece.
