Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Seeing a puppy in your dream, symbolizes your playfulness and carefree nature. It also represents a blossoming friendship or that your friendships will grow stronger. Seeing a litter of newborn puppies in your dream, is indicative of the amount of time that an idea has been developing or will take to develop. Look to the number of puppies to give you that approximate amount of time. Dreaming that you are taking care of some puppies indicates that you are a trustworthy and loyal friend especially in difficult times.
