Can dogs love their owners?
I think they can be VERY attached to a human...and attached to their human pack members...I don't think dogs feel emotion in the same way as we do, tho...When you look at the instincts that are "hard wired" into a dog...like, being a working member of a pack...following a calm and assertive leader...fighting to the death, if need be, an interloper...all things they'd do within a pack of wolves...things that have, with millions of years of domestication, been transfered to their humans...it appears to be love and undying devotion...Us humans are who like to believe it is US who creates this devotion...rather than dogs just being who they are...
...yes. Considering a dog is of the same intelligence as a 4 year old child, I would say that that is very possible.
Dogs will love anyone who is nice to them, and takes care of them. Most dogs will even love their abusive, irrisponsible owners anyways.
A dogs love...or any animal for that matter is the purest, most unconditional love you will ever find.
well it depends on how you define love, but sure, why not? dogs have rescued their owners from all sorts of dangers (fires, drowing, other animal attacks) even putting themselves at risk or dying for their efforts... and if that isnt love...
Yes, they can love their owner...they will prove it to you in many ways...loyalty, hanging by your side, eager to please, very warm welcome when you get home...ahhh, so many ways...dichihuahua
Yes !! - without a doubt - many documented stories of dogs saving their owners in distress - often times with behavour they hadn't been taught !!
I think of it as devotion. dogs are pack animals and they protect and save their own. most dogs behave towards their owners in that way.
Like fall in love? Romantically? Nope, I don't think so.
I think some dogs will love anyone that gives them attention though...
myy dog seems really close to all of my family and folllows me aroubd too sometimes and when we say my mums name his ears go up.
its because my dog toby he seems to love everyone in my family and I was wondering if dogs could love ?

Yes! My doggie loves me, and I love her. We're buddies.
