Many dog owners have found themselves unable to resist treating a pet that makes ‘puppy dog eyes’ and now scientists have discovered the cute expression taps into our subconscious.
Research by the University of Portsmouth found dogs that raise their inner brows, to make their eyes appear larger, are chosen by prospective owners more quickly than other dogs.
The study suggests that dogs have evolved in response to the human preference towards childlike faces.
