Why are Dogs so Widespread

Dogs are all over the place everyone has and loves a dog. So why do so many people have and love dogs? Many people believe that dogs are loved due to their intelligence and ability to connect with others including humans. However a recent study by Clive Wynne states that dogs are so common and loved not due to their intelligence but due to their ability to connect and capacity to form affectionate relationships with others. 

So dogs are not special and loved because they are aware of how humans are? No, it is thought that dogs have a unique understanding of humans and ability to listen to them however Wynne studied wolves and did an experiment, one of the unique qualities dogs are supposed to have is being exceptionally good at retrieving things from the ground if a human points at it. However when tested on wolves the wolves were also incredibly good at it showing that it was not a evolution from wolves to dogs as a result of dogs learning how to accept humans.

People are calling the ways dogs are interacting with humans as love however is calling dogs relationships with humans love projecting human emotions onto dogs instead of understanding fully. This is though in fact love just another brand of love. The way that dogs form deep connections with others is the same as what we call love just they form relationships in different ways.
