What does the Quran say about Keeping and Breeding Dogs?
It has nothing to do with religion whether a dog is kept in the house or in the garden. It is not forbidden in the Quran in regards to this. It is entirely up to us. Those who say that keeping dogs in the house is forbidden, or that the angels don’t come to houses with dogs, is based entirely on customs (Ahadith) and traditions. There are no negative
statements about dogs to be found in the Quran; on the contrary dogs are referred to as man’s friend (al-Kahf 18: 18, 22), and dogs may be used for hunting (al-Maidah 5:4). Therefore it is not forbidden to keep Dogs.
