    Dogs definitely have souls. Any creature capable of overcoming its built-in programming (instincts) and acting against its own survival in an act of heroic self-sacrifice, must therefore possess a soul. If it were truly "just an animal" it could not, and would not be able to, defeat its in-born programmed "hard-wired" instincts, and thus would always fight to save itself instead of bravely sacrificing its life to save other animals and humans. There are countless examples of dogs who were not trained as rescue animals, yet who gladly gave up their own lives to save others, and that capacity for self-sacrifice is absolute proof of the presence of a soul.

    Besides God said that when we get to Heaven, we would not be disappointed....Well I certainly would if my pets were not there waiting for me!

    I know dogs have souls, and my very own Big Black Dog convinced me of it, although I already knew it was so. He helped me write a book, titled "Bandit, Big Black Dog Who Stole My Heart", available through authorhouse.com, and it's a great book about the relationship between humans and dogs, and reading Bandit's viewpoint in every chapter will convince you that he's a very soulful dog. He has a mission to eradicate the Big Black Dog Syndrome, and our goal is for you to fall in love with Bandit, and let another Big Black Dog into your life, from a shelter, or rescue org. Check it out, you won't be disappointed! love bandit black dog life shelter rescue org check disappointed

    Of course, dogs have souls. All living things do. Take my dog for example: She breathes, she eats, she sleeps, she thinks, she loves, she is alive. So yes.

    Dogs, as well as other animals are not aware of sin, in my opinion, therefore have nothing to redeem through Christs sacrafice and therefor can't enter heaven. I could be wrong

    Why else would they be so much like prissy teen girls, drama queens, biker guys, and a caring family member? Take a look at a puppy in a shelter and tell me it doesn't have a soul.

    Dogs and humans think alike. Yes, dogs have souls, and they go to Heaven like all the rest of us. Some people say that dogs only go to doggy heaven.

    Dogs have just the same chance that we have of having a soul. And theirs is probably more pure and loving.
    If anything, they deserve to go to heaven more than we do...

    Well, I find no mention of it in scripture, so I am not so sure they do have souls. However scripture does mention certain animals and beasts in heaven, so it cannot be ruled out with any certainty.

    It would seem to follow however that if they do have souls they could go to hell as well? That gives a whole new meaning to "Bad Dog!"

    I suppose they would have to bite a pastor or priest to go to hell. Then again that would probably depend on the pastor or priest. In some cases, I guess that might just get them in to heaven, soul or not.


    7 And then the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
    Genesis 2:7 KJV

    It seems clear from scripture that man does.


    I can't wait to find out if animals do as well.

    John in his visions of heaven describes various animals and beasts:

    17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.
    Revelation 9:17 KJV

    8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him;...

    8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day or night, saying, Holy, holy, holy Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come,

    Revelation 4:8 KJV

    So it would seem as previously stated there are animals and beasts in heaven.

    Not all living thing have souls - Do you think grass has a soul? All children and dog lovers will tell you dogs have souls, but that claim is largely based on the fact that they have dopamine. It's simple science. Dogs do not love the way humans do.

    rocks don't go to heaven because they were never alive and therefore don't die. anything that can die has a soul. i will explain it like this....
    Which started to work first, your heart or you brain? the brain tells the heart to beat, but the heart needs to beat to power the brain, into infinite circles. Thats where the soul comes in. it gives you body the starting power to the brain, also creating the phenomenon of the thought process. people consider their body to be, in escence, THEM. the true factor is that your brain is you. If somehow your brain were removed from the body, but still could think, you would still be you, still the same person. the fact of destinguishing the difference between your body casing and YOU YOURSELF, is where the explanation of a soul comes in.
