To my knowledge, a dog has no concept of variety, and not much of taste and so will eat anything even remotely edible at any time unless it is sick.

Hence a dog will eat dry dog food until it sated, or there is none left. They will also eat excrement, paper, vegetable matter, cloth, shoes, garden bulbs or tubers, and any animal it can catch and kill without injuring it's self.

Giving a dog human food is a waste and may result in the dog becoming sick or dying through an inability to process a complex diet.

Recent history shows they will attack and kill babies, small children and even adults, but not necessarily as a food source although that could become a secondary "benefit".
