Would you be surprised if I tell that some people think that if a Yorkie and a human were in danger, and you just have the chance to save just one of them, most of them would prefer to save the Yorkie?
Most of Yorkie owners love too much their four-legged friends that they treat them like if they were kids. In addition, some others prefer to spend their time with their dog rather than a friend or family member.
Researchers from Northwestern University of Colorado have shown that many people feel more empathy with a dog than a human. The study was developed by 260 students. They read a fake new about a beaten adult and dog. The result was surprising showing that most of the students would prefer to save the dog rather than the human mentioned in the fake news.
