I dreamed of a black german shepard dog with a yellow collar running down the road. He was obviously lost by the way he acted and looked. Does this have a meaning?
Dogs usually represent your instinctive affection of loyalty and protection. It sounds like you may have lost that feeling of being protected by another’s loyalty. Yellow can be a color signifying caution is needed. These feelings have probably been “unleashed” and are looking for a home.
The dreamer replied:
Well, I’m about to get married at the end of the month. Maybe I’ve got prewedding jitters?
To which I answered:
That sounds reasonable to me. It could represent worries, that you do not want the feelings of loyalty and protection to be lost.

A woman told me the following before describing her dream:
I had a disagreement with someone that’s been in and out of my life. This person contacted me to tell me that I have the the power to fix it. I was asking for a sign if this relationship could be fixed or if this is a toxic relationship that I shouldn’t have in my life. [Before she went to sleep, she incubated a dream by asking for a dream that would indicate what she should do with this relationship and she had the dream described in the next paragraph]:
“In the dream, my golden retriever bit a cousin’s daughter, which is totally out of the dog’s character. The daughter’s mother (also my longtime friend and patient I provide care for) told me I need to put the dog down. I woke up feeling conflicted. Oddly enough I went to sleep asking spirit for a sign and that’s the sign the I received!”
I think the dream is voting that it is a toxic relationship that you should stay away from. Dogs are all about loyalty and the dream does a double entendre dream condensation on the theme of loyalty. Remember that each character in the dream is a part of your mind with women going more with emotions. Animals often represent our instinctive feelings. Dream condensation occurs when the dream is true on more than one level.
I think the woman represents your emotional common sense which says that, painful as it may be, you have to kill your instinctual loyalty (the dog) before you get bitten. The reason you put a dog down is because the dog has proven itself to be dangerous by biting someone. To me, this means you have to kill your internal loyalty to this person so that you do not get bitten again.

A woman dreamed that she was walking along and she noticed the diamond was missing from her finger. She thought she had lost it. A young boy then came up to her with the ring and gave the ring back to her.
Each character in the dream represents a different part of the dreamer’s mind at the first level of dream interpretation. Men tend to go with actions or a more action-oriented part of the mind. Women tend to go more with an emotional part of the psyche.
The maturity level of the character in the dream usually represents how developed either the action or the emotion is. That it was a young boy who returns the ring to her means that she is probably taking new action to confirm a commitment, an allegiance, a loyalty, a close relationship, or even a job.
It is unknown whether this dream describes the current state of affairs or whether the dream is predictive. Only the dreamer will be able to discern the full meaning of this dream.

Dream 419: Sealing My Emotions
A woman reported the following dream:
“I cannot remember the beginning of the dream however I dreamed about a toy dog…grey..in a normal bed…but alive !!
Two people were on each side of the bed moving him into another place (a room) where the toy dog will be more comfortable. I kissed him from his cheek with passion, assuring him that he will be ok. My lipstick left a mark on his cheek. He shook his head with appreciation and made a noise. I was neither happy or sad. Thank for the help in interpreting.”
The two people involved implies a couple so it’s probably relationship issues. It probably involves sexual issues since a bed is involved. Pets usually go with our affections. Dogs in particular tend to go with feelings of loyalty.
That the dog is grey means that there are some Shades of Grey in the relationship.
The fact that it is a toy dog means it may involve someone who toys with your affections and loyalty or emotions that you may initially not take seriously.
Your kissing him in the dream seals the deal in my world that you are wanting a relationship where people are loyal to one another. This also involves accepting shades of grey within yourself emotionally. It seems like it would imply that you are more likely to be appreciated and have a good relationship if you accept Shades of Grey as all relationships have their positive and negative moments.
The dog being grateful I think means that you will be very much appreciated for your loyalty in spite of the shades of grey within yourself or within a relationship.

A woman who spoke German asked, “What does a white German Shepherd puppy mean in a dream?”
Family pets usually represent our affections. Cats tend to go more with women while dogs tend to go more with men. White is the most spiritual color that there is.
Dogs are known to be protective and loyal. The most positive part of masculinity is protective and loyal. German shepherds in particular are one person dogs. You want a man that’s truly and spiritually devoted to you and only you in a protective loyal way.
As the dream points out, it is hard to find such a man (white German Shepherds are rare). The fact that it is a puppy indicates you are looking for a new kind of man who has those qualities at a spiritual level. It may be important for the man to be German.

Dream Answer 298: Babies are almost always good news in dreams. They typically signal new growth in the dreamer of either new emotional (girl babies) or new behavior (boy babies). The following dream indicated new emotional growth:
An adult woman dreamed that she saw a spirit (baby-like) floating up in the corner of her bedroom near the ceiling. She staring at it trying to figure out what to do when her chihuahua, who was also looking at it, turned to her and said “you see it, just speak to it”. So she asked “who are you” and it materialized into a flower (like a daisy) against her wall.
Each person or creature in a dream is a part of the dreamer’s psyche at the first level. Females tend to go with emotions. Males tend to be associated with behavior. A baby represents a new part of the mind/psyche.
Floating or flying typically takes on spiritual meaning. Floating indicates usually an activated energy that is hanging above the dreamer. The emotional change that the new female baby portends is likely to happen soon when it is floating which is a peaceful and serene form of flying.
Dogs typically go with the dreamer’s affections and are associated with loyalty and protection. The dog gives you advice in the sense of urging you to speak to activate this new emotional part of you. Specifically, the dreamer was urged to speak directly about what she sees going on to others (“you see it, just speak it”).
The baby turning into a flower indicated that her new emotional growth was beautiful. The flower went against her “wall” which indicated she was going to be less defensive. The new emotional growth on the verge of entering the dreamer’s life was that she was becoming less defensive by speaking out directly about what she sees going on. She was being urged to be less defensive and to be more assertive. The dream wanted her to speak her truth.

Dream 255: A 28-year-old woman dreamt that her abusive boyfriend hit her dog over the head with a shovel. The dog was dead. He was burying the dog. She wanted to stop the burial because the dog might still be alive.
Interpretation– Each person and animal in a dream represents part of the person’s mind. Animals typically represent basic instincts. Dogs in particular usually represent internal tendencies to be loyal and protective. The dream was saying that her experience with her abusive boyfriend had damaged her ability to feel protected and loyal towards men. That the dog might still be alive indicated that her trust of men was damaged, but that she might be able to heal from this traumatic experience.
