Creatures and animals in dreams can be very symbolic. They may indicate what is going on in your life in dramatic terms. Don’t forget that many of these animals may reveal to you the general plan your spiritual enemy is plotting against you.
A senior citizen, for instance, dreamed that a bear cub was at the bottom of her right leg grinning. She soon found out that she had PAD (peripheral artery disease) and the blood flow in her right leg artery was significantly blocked. Her spiritual enemy was pleased and hoped she would be afraid of this new (cub) situation. The use of the bear in the dream was an accurate depiction of the situation, a disease which may seem docile, but may suddenly and unexpectedly attack.
2. Can indicate judgment and strength.
3. Bears are sometimes likened to possessive mothers and the emotions this could arouse. So a bear might represent a meeting with dangerous emotions such as anger or being easily aroused. This confrontation with emotions could be about an inner conflict within the dreamer, OR it could represent a negative encounter with someone or something else.
The bear is largely a solitary creature, capable of living alone and surviving. This, and its human way of standing and holding its arms out in a hugging posture, may come together to represent a particular person who can be described that way.
4. May have to do with loss or lack as in a “bear market”
Possibly demonic (independent from God)
May appear good or cute
The two listed here are the most common
If the dog is a pet of yours, it may symbolize something you are holding onto (a belief or habit).
This may or may not be a good thing, and the context will indicate if you are to let go of it.
1. THE BIBLICAL MEANING IS OUTSIDER/UNBELIEVER
He replied, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” Matthew 15:26
In contrast with western connotations, dogs in a biblical context are associated with dismal poverty and life at the bottom of the social scale. They are repeatedly depicted in terms of disgusting and inadequate diet. They are never satisfied and are willing to consume what is repulsive in their continual hunger.
