条 meaning

我曾经养过一条狗,但是因为它的叫声影响了我的邻居,所以我不得不把它送走,把它送走了我很伤心,因为我很喜欢它

A chinese friend wrote to me the above sentence but before the dog in the first part he uses this item which I believe must be a classifier. Can someone confirm the purpose  of 条 in the above sentence?

“条” is a measure word for dog.

For example, 一条狗,一条鱼,一条蛇,一条绳子,一条马路,一条河......

"条" is used as a measure word add before something sharp is long and thin.
