A dog symbolizes the guardian of the underworld. In Egyptian mythology this is depicted by Anubis, the dog-headed god, who guided the souls of the dead to the underworld - our most secret part. To dream of a pack of wild dogs portrays emotions and feelings of which we are afraid. To be chased by a black dog suggests a fear of depression. Dreaming of a dog depends on whether it is one known to us (such as a childhood pet), when it then may represent happy memories; if unknown it may signify the qualities of loyalty and unconditional love associated with dogs.
