Istiftaat > keeping the dog in the house
Print out

My son got a puppy to the house.  I feed it and clean it, and after I change clothes and do wudoo before I pray.  CanI keep the dog in the house?

A: it is permissible to own a dog, provided that one conforms with the rules of Tahara, since the dog is Najas and renders impure what it meets if there is wetness.
