Hi. To answer your question in one word, it's because of loyalty .. A dog would never let his owner go in times of any trouble ..

if you shout at a og, say bad things to him, curse him, hit him, or forgot to feed him for a day... he will still come running to you, waggling his tail, as if nothing happen... you cant do that to your guy best friend or girl best friend

I don't know the exact reason as to why that is said, but I would guess that people (hence the man part) like dogs (hence the friend). Dogs are pretty loyal pets and along with cats one of the most common types of pets out there. Unlike cats, dogs tend to seek affection from their owners and are much happier when their owner gives them attention.

Dogs are called mans best friend because they are so loyal. And there has been so many stories about dogs saving their owners. Ever watched the show on animal planet called Mircle Pets or something like that.
