I bet the top reason is because dogs give unconditional love, making it hard to dislike them unless they do something to harm or frighten you. Also, there are no snap associations that we make with our own human prejudices based on our social status, skin color, gender, etc. This allows us to freely assume the dog is a nice, loving, friendly being when asked to give to a hurt dog campaign (as in the study), whereas with an adult human we are faced with all of our own prejudices and can easily justify saying no. It is hard for anyone to say no to a hurt puppy or baby.
