Do dogs really respond to human cries for help? | ZME Science

While everybody can recognize that dogs are extremely attached to their owners, how eager are they really to engage in rescuing behavior?

This was the subject of a recent scientific inquiry performed by Joshua Van Bourg, a graduate student at Arizona State University’s Department of Psychology, and Clive Wynne, who is a professor of psychology at Arizona State University.

Dr. Wynne is the author of Dog Is Love and this is the best of these types of studies that I have read about.
