The story is from the point of view of the owner of the dog.
A Human Base or Colony is raided by Aliens while the occupants are elsewhere.
It is a data gathering mission to decide if first contact is a good idea.
They capture a Dog along with other artefacts.
They read it's mind and based on the relationship between the Dog and it's owner
they proceed with first contact.
Probably 1960's to 1970's.
It may have been Juvenile SF and was possibly by Heinlein.
