Why do people choose to stay in an abusive relationship? That is a hard question to answer. Nobody can ask a dog if s/he is happy living with their owner thus nothing needs to be done to stop dogs being abused. Also dogs can be purchased like any other animal too, therefore there is not much need to be concerned about how they are treated.

I will now take a snippet from my source:

"people who abuse end up abusing because they have an empathy deficit, either because of some sort of brain damage, or because they were so abused themselves as children that their innate empathic abilities never developed properly. Such abusers cannot or will not relate to other people as people, choosing instead to treat them as objects. In effect, they confuse people for things. They treat people as though they were there solely for their convenience and do not otherwise have an independent, important life. Abusers who treat people in this manner are very likely psychologically ill, and possibly medically ill as well. " [1]

By doing "something" to stop dogs being abused you are just going to make people who see animals being abused get angry about nothing and kill someone who is psychologically or medically ill. Human life is more valuable than animal life.

There are people who do die trying to save their pet but that is because they think they won't die.

How many people would sacrifice their life so their pet can live? No-one
How many people would sacrifice their life to save a family member, a partner, or a friend? A lot

Therefore human life is more important than animal life.

You can drive into a loose dog, take its life (cruelist thing you can do) and you are unlikely to be punished by law, however I am not going to say that human life is more important because that is what the law says.
