What circumstances make dogs haram?

Q:

What circumstances make dogs haram?

A:

Waalykum salam 

 
Thank you for your Question. 
 
Dogs are Najis and not haram 
 
Many traditions state that they are Najis. Modern science also support that they are known to spread many diseases. However, not all reasons are known yet. But this doesn’t compromise on our servitude towards Allah and his laws. 
Not everything is known to us, but the creator was wise to tell us our green and red lines 
 
Hope this helps
