Keeping dogs for security

Q: I would like to enquire what is the ruling with regards to keeping dogs for security?

A: To have a dog for security reasons is permissible. Make sure that it does not come into the house and try and avoid physical contact, especially of the mouth and saliva of the dog as this is impure and najis.
