To dream of a represents protective attentiveness. Staying on top of things by being alert and making careful observations.
I currently own a Dog who is 3/4 White German Shepherd and 1/4 Timber Wolf. I had a dream last night that my dog and I were traveling alone on on a dirt road that went through a forest.
For example, if a relative whom you did not particularly like had a dog, you may dream about being chased by the dog.
My dog, which is a German Shepherd, didn't do anything. I don't know how long I was there, but I got up and went downstairs and layed in front of my washer and dryer. My dog was curled up next to me.
