10 Things You Didn’t Know About Dogs

Heirs and heiresses

In the United States, about 1 million dogs are the main inheritors of their owner’s will. This isn’t hard to understand since dogs are one of the most faithful companions you can procure, and many owners think them to be a real member of their family. The largest legacy reported to have been left to a dog was a prosperous little German Shepherd named Gunther III. His keeper left him an astounding amount of 80 million! That’s a lot of dog treats.

Dogs can hide their identification.

A terrified dog will put its tail between his legs because it cuts off the scent glands in its anal region which carry bodily scents that recognize the individual dogs. It’s almost as if the dog is protecting his ID card.


Studies reveal that dogs can certainly express jealousy. Dogs have the same hormone, oxytocin, which has been determined to be involved in both representations of love and jealousy in tests involving humans.
