How to Say “Dog” in Spanish
In Spanish, many animals have a fixed grammatical gender that has nothing to do with the animal’s biological sex. For example la jirafa(giraffe) is a feminine noun. For other animals, like dog, we use the masculine form (el perro) to refer to a male and the feminine form (la perra) to refer to a female.
When you are speaking generally about a dog or when you don’t know a dog’s gender, you can use the masculine form perro.
