According to the reporter/writer, it was the reserchers who classifed the dogs as more or less selfish depending on their behaviour in a controlled experiment.

The writer of the linked article did question the use of the term, and the validity of the study. There was no link to the original study, so there could be more to it than that.

Oh, wait! Found the link:
PLOS ONE: Do Dogs Provide Information Helpfully?

I stand corrected!! THe intent and result anaylsis of the study is completely different as to what the "Must create internet content that will attract readers" article that is posted above.

Saying that dogs are selfish and citing examples of selfishness is but but remotely connected to the findings of dog/human communication that the study was exploring.
