Shocking study: Dogs are not humans' best friend

Contrary to what has been known for many years, a recent British study revealed that dogs are not humans best friend, accusing them of being selfish beings who just love playing with their owners, but are not willing to sacrifice for their help.
The British newspaper "Telegraph" reported that the study, prepared by the British University of Portsmouth, shows that the dog cares more about itself than its owners.
The researchers studied 24 dogs to learn the benefit of dogs to their owners, and they concluded that although some types of dogs, especially bush, sometimes help their owners, self-interest was the main driver that drives the behavior of dogs.
To test each animal, a notebook that someone used in one corner of the place was hidden, making sure the dog saw it, and then the person left the room. Meanwhile, a game was placed in another container at a different angle. The test aims to prove that if a person returns to search for his notebook and finds the dog pointing to him, then he is a dog who loves to help his friend. In the same test, a stapler was placed in a third angle, as control and does not symbolize selfishness or benefit.
The test showed that when the person came back and tried to search for the book, most dogs pointed to the place of the game more than the notebook or stapler. As for the rest of the dogs, the notebook was like a stapler for her. Where some remember the notebook while the rest remember the stapler.

The researchers stated that they tried to assess whether the dogs would give up something they found interesting in exchange for something useful to their human owner. The results showed that self-interest is driving the behavior of dogs.
However, if there were no toys around dogs, a different group of dogs might achieve better results, some dogs looked at the spot where the notebook was hidden for half a second longer than the stapler.
This study is not the first to suggest that dogs are not humans' best friends. In 2006 some people pretended to have a heart attack and others put themselves in other dangerous situations in front of their dogs, but none of them ran to assist its owner.
Another study has shown that dogs should never be hugged because they hate it. Animal psychologists said that dogs feel stressed and unhappy when their owners hug them; Because it hinders her from "running away".
Surprisingly, researchers suggested that goats or sheep replace dogs to become the best friend of man, after a study, last month revealed that they formed the same emotional bond with their owners.
