Signs of Dogs ||62||

1A dog three of whose legs have five nails and the right fore-foot six, whose lips and muzzle are red, which has the gait of a lion, smells the ground while running, has a shaggy tail, eyes like those of a bear, ears hanging and soft, such a dog being kept in a house promises ere-long great prosperity to the owner.
2A bitch with five nails on each foot, six on the left forefoot, with eyes surrounded by white rings, with a crooked tail, and having a brown colour and hanging ears, protects the country if she is properly nurtured.
