A dream in which you get bitten by a white dog symbolizes fake friends. These are friends that appear to be good to you but have hidden agendas. Dogs in dreams stand for friendship just as the saying goes, a dog is man’s best friend.
The color white stands for goodwill. However, since the dog bit you, it means this is false goodwill meant to hide malicious intent.
Here are some more meanings of a dream about being bitten by a white dog.
You are afraid of something you should embrace
Being bitten by a white dog in the dream could as well mean there is something good in your life that you are afraid of. You are misjudging it based on preconceived notions without first examining it to see it for what it is. It’s not just that this will lead to a missed opportunity, but it could result in more negativity in your life.
A dream in which you see a white dog bite you means there is something that you are committed to that might end up harming you. This is something you think is good for you, and it really could be. This is symbolized by the white color of the dog.
However, your commitment or love for this might prove detrimental to your wellbeing, possibly because you are mishandling it.
A bad friend that appears good
As earlier stated, a dream about a white dog could mean there is someone in your life that deceptively seems good to you but is actually harmful to your interests. It does not mean the person is inherently bad. It is about the person not being relevant to your destiny.
Being with them will not get you closer to your goals and it will not bring out the best of you. You are incompatible.
Here are some examples of dreams about a white dog biting you and what they might mean.
Dream about a white dog biting your hand
A dream in which you see a white dog bite your hand means someone at your place of work, at your business, or at your school will betray you. You made yourself vulnerable to this person by trusting them and they may use this as a gateway and opportunity to act out their malicious intent.
The fact that the white dog bit your hand means this betrayal will affect the way you work or study. In short, it will affect the works of your hands. The hand in dream symbolism stands for your ability to be productive.
Dream about a white dog biting your leg
A dream in which you see a white dog bite your leg symbolizes betrayal that hampers your ability to move forward in life. Your advancement in life might as well be the reason for this betrayal – for example, because people are jealous of your strides.
It’s about some fake friends around you feeling intimidated by your progress and thereby launching an assault against you. Whatever it is they will do, it might hinder your advancement as symbolized by your leg. You will need to be careful who you trust. Watch out for those that seem to act out of jealousy.
Dream about a white dog biting your face
A dream in which you see a white dog bite your face symbolizes a fake friend running your reputation. Your face in the dream symbolizes your public image or your reputation. The fact that this white dog bit you in the dream means some slander or gossip will fly around with the sole purpose of distorting how people perceive you.
This assault, unfortunately, might come from someone who pretends to be loyal to you.
Dream about a white dog biting a child
A dream in which you see a white dog bite a child is about you if the child you saw is not yours. It means there are some fears and other psychological issues from your childhood that you think are benign. This is symbolized by the white color of the dog. The fact that the dog bit you, however, means these issues are harming you more than you think and they have to be dealt with.
If the child that was bitten by the white dog in your dream was yours, it means there is something you are doing for them in good faith but that is actually harming them. It means you need to review your parenting to see if there are any things you are missing.
For example, giving your child everything they want might seem the right thing to do. However, this might leave them feeling entitled, never accepting no for an answer.
