Wolves became dangerous for human and hence man too is loving and caring towards them. They want to maintain a distance with wolves because wolves are ferocious and harmful unlike dogs.

These are the primary reasons of the love for humans, which dogs have in them instinctively. Even humans have reciprocated their love for the dogs in very friendly and secured way.
