Neeka, a Banean dog

Alfa 177 canine

A canine native to Alfa 177

Canines were mammalian quadrupeds known for being quite territorial. (ENT: "Doctor's Orders") Unlike cats, canines were known for their ability to respond to commands. (TNG: "Phantasms")

In 2154, shortly before Gral and his Tellarite delegation came aboard Enterprise NX-01 for transport to Babel, Ensign Hoshi Sato advised Captain Jonathan Archer to keep his pet beagle Porthos away from the Tellarites as they consumed canines and found them to be a delicacy. (ENT: "Babel One")

The Tandarans and Banea had animals resembling canines, which were kept as pets. (ENT: "Two Days and Two Nights"; VOY: "Ex Post Facto") The Cardassians also had a species of hound used for riding, much like an Earth horse. (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow") A dog-like animal was also native to Alfa 177. (TOS: "The Enemy Within")

The grint hound was a species of dog on Qo'noS. (DS9: "Time's Orphan") Commander Kruge kept a ferocious Klingon monster dog as a pet aboard his Bird-of-Prey. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock) Another species of dog, the jackal mastiff, was used by the Klingons as a guardian animal on the prison asteroid Rura Penthe. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The Anticans were a species of sentient canine. (TNG: "Lonely Among Us")

As of 2370, Spot had never been chased by a canine, leaving Data at a loss to understand what the cat was dreaming about. (TNG: "Phantasms")
