Do dogs have empathy?

In a recent study, a stranger, a dog owner and his dog were placed in a room to assess canine empathy. The stranger and dog owner took turns humming and fake crying in order for the researchers to study the dog’s reaction to the neutral sound (humming)versus the expression of distress (fake crying) in a familiar face (owner) versus a someone new (stranger).
