Halacha - DOGS ON SHABBAT
Submitted by MICHAEL MISSRY  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

A pet dog is muktza and may be touched but not moved except in situations of tzaar baalei chaim. The Rosh and Maharach Ohr Zarua explain that even though the primary reason Chazal declared live animals muktza, that they serve no purpose on Shabbos, would not apply to a pet, however they did not differentiate and made a blanket rule forbidding all animals.
