When I had a dog, she was afraid to other dogs and bugs. Whenever she sees other dogs or when she sees a bug, she becomes scared. Once, a rat came out and she was running away. But she is very friendly to people, literally everyone. So why are dogs so friendly to humans?

Dogs’ loyalty to humans stems from the shared past of the two species. After the domestication of the dog, the species and humans began to change together. Consequently, the two species developed an understanding that no other species, including higher order primates, shares with humans. Research into the bond between humans and dogs has found a number of behaviors that developed from and continue to grow the loyalty between dogs and humans.

The friendship between man and dog has gone back thousands of years. Dogs didn’t become “man’s best friend” for no reason. They give us unconditional love every day. My question is, do we deserve it? I see too many stories of dogs being mistreated, dogs being made to fight, dogs being over bred for profit, dogs being killed because they don’t have homes.

Dogs are bred to help and be companions to people. Being social with humans is in their nature and most dogs are socialized to be friendly towards people, they are taught not to be afraid or aggressive.

Here are some dog breeds that are loyal to their OWNER

Rough Collie – The Rough Collie is a herding breed that originated in Scotland. Rough collies have a history of being incredibly loyal and protective of their owners, making them excellent family dogs.

German Shepherd – These highly active dogs have a willingness to learn and serve a purpose. As a working dog breed, German Shepherds are naturally loyal and bond well with familiar faces. They have a tendency to become overprotective of their family and territory, strong guidance and training is a necessity.

Beagle – A hunting breed, Beagles are often used by homeland security personnel because of their incredible sense of smell. They are pack animals and for this reason, they are very attached to their owners.

Boxer – Its powerful jaws and bite allowed it hold down boars and deer until the hunters arrived. Boxers are energetic, fun loving, extremely loyal, and low maintenance. They are harmless around family members but can be wary of strangers. This makes them good watchdogs, as they often will alert their owners when there is a stranger near their home.

Dachshund – They were originally bred to hunt badgers, rabbits, and other small prey because of its strong stubby legs and large paws that were made for digging. A dachshund loves to have fun and play. These dogs may be small, but they are very protective of their families.
