: I can´t find the meaning of this phrase ("dog does not eat dog") and I need to translate into its equivalent in Spanish. Can anybody help me? Thanks in advance

It isn't a familiar one. It sounds like simply a denial of the common cynical statement "It's a dog-eat-dog world," meaning that people are selfish and ruthless. Could you provide more of its context?
