Default DXB Police not allowed to enter your property?

Yesterday a family in JVT were out walking their two little dogs when a Doberman attacked and killed both of the small dogs. When the police came the owner refused them entry to his property. In the UK they'd have been allowed, in pursuit of a crime, so it seems strange that Dubai police can't.

Probably depends on the nationality and influence of the property owner.

Probably not a crime here. The Dangerous Dogs Act only came in in the UK in 1991.

Muslims don't like dogs, I'm sure they were happy enough to be refused entry into a house with a blood thirsty Doberman,

And millions that don't. The only dog they generally like is the Saluki as it serves a purpose. The rest they generally see as unclean.

And I'm sure there are Koreans who keep dogs as pets too.

there was loads of Emirati's at the dog show a few years back, I was quite surprised. It's all to do with a myth that a dog dug up Allah's grave.

That I didn't know. I assumed it was written in a hadith that they were unclean.

I was told this years ago, no idea how much truth is in it though but it might explain their dislike for the animal? look how Egyptians worship cats and their reasoning why
