Keeping Dog as pets Friendship

    Assalamuaalaikum,

    I have an enquiry about keeping dog as pets as I came across many Muslims even in the Middle East who keep dogs as pets.

    I was told that Dogs are haram to breed but how come there are still who keep dogs?

    I hope to get answers from any knowledgeable people here. Please advice.

    Thank you.


    Wassalam

    Hello all,

    Should I say hello or asslalamuaalaikum?

    For those who have replied to my messages, thanks a lot but I won't get myself a dog.

    I agreed with Maverick that Muslims keep dog for safeguarding their property or for hunting purposes...I think those "Muslims" who keep dogs as pets are not really observant or they do have not knowledge about their own religion at all..

    I think people seriously underestimate how amazing dogs are lets not forget what they do for the disabled as well as what they do for people who are depressed or scared to leave there homes alone

    I think Dogs and cats have
    been kept as pets for many
    centuries now.

    The difference is that Dogs
    will bond with you, and to
    a Cat you are staff!

    I've had both. The dog is
    very good at guarding your
    home, even if it doesn't
    bite, it will bark at an
    intruder, scaring them off.
    Some cats will protect too
    and their attacks are quite
    mean.

    In order to get cats and
    dogs, they do have to be
    bred, and someone has to do
    it. I personally prefer the
    more exotic breeds, such as the
    Collie but they are not suited
    well to hot climates. They
    have very long hair but have
    some of the most loving
    dispositions. They will let
    your children crawl all over
    them and if threatened will
    give their lives to protect
    them.

    But don't ever get a Dalmation!
    Half are born blind, they have
    health problems. The morons who
    bred them didn't have a clue. I
    think that breed will soon be
    lost forever because of stupidity
    and the imbreeding.
