One day, if you had to choose one from a dachshund and a human when they were in danger. You only had a chance, you would prefer to save the dachshund? The answer is that most people will decide to save the dachshund.
If the people owning dachshunds, they will love their four-legged friends so much because dachshunds treat them like kids. Besides, they prefer to spend their time with their dachshund puppies rather than their friends or relatives.
Researchers from Northwestern University of Colorado showed that most people will sympathize with a dachshund rather than a human. There were 260 students engaging the research, they read a fake news saying about a beaten human and a dachshund. The result was surprising, it showed that most the of students prefer to save the dachshund rather than the human.
The fake news gave that the victims were attacked by a stranger and trying to leave with one broken leg and many injuries all over body. And almost the students felt empathy for the dachshund rather than the human.
Besides, scientists also found that dachshund owners will not have problems spending much money for their four-legged friends, some of them are even willing to spend as much money as possible as long as their puppies feel happy. In addition, the study also showed that dog lovers are willing to raise money for charity to help dogs rather than humans.
The students were not told what the experiment was about in order to get an accurate result. The question is the experiment is that if the students had $100, how much would they donate to help dogs and how much for humans. And do you believe? Almost they had spent $70 to help dogs and just $30 for humans.
Moreover, the study showed that dachshund owners or dog owners are also close to their pets. Dachshunds will be excited when their owners pay attention to them. That was what the researching team said and the study was done and published in the Journal of Scientific Reports.
The scientists also added that dachshunds or other dogs often express on their faces. They raise their eyebrows and even make their eyes bigger when they want to get attention from their owners.
The study also showed that the dog facial expressions are largely unconscious movements, that reflect internal sentiments, it could be a better route of communication between the owner and a dog.
However, the study didn’t make dog trainers surprised. They already knew it and they expected such a result. Russell Hartstein said: Dachshunds or other dogs are willing to give us their unconditional love and many people are close to their pets rather than other people.
