A tamed dog can become free if it runs into the forest
Since it does not, I have to assume the dog doesn't understand the principle of freedom.
A tamed dog stays with his host, if he is not chained, for the same reason a child stays with his parents or an employee stays with his employer. A child stays with his parents if he likes it, because he depends on it and knows no better, if the parents turn out to be bad he can run, and it happened in many families. Dogs also run away from their bad hosts if they have the opportunity and motivation.

We are not talking about the same rights here. We talk about the most basic interests of animals that should be afforded the same consideration as the similar interests of humans.

If the dog will win the elections.

So you say that when humans take care of the weaker and sick, they brake the law of nature?
