Dog as pet and its saliva


What's the permissibility of dogs as pets across the different Madhabs? What's the ruling on the spit of dogs across the different Madhabs?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


According to all the jurists, it is impermissible to keep a dog as a pet, i.e., keeping a dog without a valid reason. For more details regarding the ruling of keeping dogs, kindly refer to the following link:

The saliva of a dog is impure, according to all Madhabs except the Maliki Madhab.
