Although, now that I think about it (and checked my Nederlands->Engels dictionary), I'm not sure "hund" is dog. I think that's "hond"...

Hund isn't dutch. Hond is the dutch for dog, so it looks like a typo (hund is german for dog though). The rest of the sentence is dutch and it indeed says "Beware of the dog".

"Hund" is not Dutch for dog, that's "hond". So I think thats a typo. But "Pas op voor de hond" means "beware of the dog"
