Is there anything more genuine than a dog’s unconditional love of their owner?
This dog clearly loves his human. In fact, he can’t contain his excitement as soon as the man walks in the door. The dog literally leaps into his owner’s arms, showering the man with affection and even knocking the hat off of his head.
I promise that it’s not just about the food. Dogs really do love their humans, and scientists have done studies that prove it.
Using an MRI machine, scientists looked at how dogs’ brains responded to the scents of both familiar and unfamiliar people. Research showed that the scent of their owners excited the dogs more than any other smell!
It’s also been shown that in the relationship between a dog and a human, the love hormone oxytocin is released in dogs just like in humans.
