I beg to differ minininja. Just recently my sister, nephew and their dog Bluebell were stranded at the train station because all the Taxi drivers were Muslim and wouldn't take dogs, for example. Also this field of enquiry is more than extant on the net already eg: https://www.google.com/search?q=hadith+sleeping+dog&oq=hadith+sleeping+dog&aqs=chrome..69i57.5171j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

The Quran mentions dogs twice, including the permission to eat meat that has been carried by hunting dogs. In another verse, a group of “believers” and their dog escape their persecutors by hiding in a cave, where they fall asleep. “And their dog stretched his forelegs across the threshold,” the verse finishes.

“This tender description of the dog guarding the cave makes it clear that the animal is good company for believers,” Ingrid Mattson, chair of the Islamic studies program at Huron University College, wrote last December in a column for The Huffington Post.
