I've been thinking about this. When a animal rescues it's owner, it's not doing it to be a hero and it's not being brave either. It's motivation is purely on it's own survival. The dog who run's into a flaming house to rescue it's owner does this because the owner is the dog's only source of food and care, and the dog know's that without it's owner, it will die. It's not a hero.

That seems like awfully high thinking skills for a dog. They're not good at thinking about the future or consequences like that.

But look at military working dogs, those dogs do badass shit and don't even think twice about it.

It's not a hero.

yeah it's like how even with people being "selfless" isn't actually a thing. if yuo help someone, it is because that's what YOU wanted. it just happens to benefit others

that's too smart for a dog to reason out.
i'm just guessing here, but i'd wager its an evolutionary thing.
my guess would be that wolves that don't protect their pack members and therefore have to survive solo don't often get to breed. wolves that do protect their pack are more likely to get the chance to pass their genes down, so many dogs have those protective instincts.
