Thanks for the correction.  It’s nice having more options for Klingon critters.

qovIj                     canine-like creature (smaller than a {ngavyaw'}) (n)
(qep’a’ 2019):   “a smaller animal, similar to Kruge's pet“
PUN:   backwards it’s {jIvoq} “I trust” (*Fido* in Latin!)

Hmm… “similar to Kruge's pet”

ngavyaw'             canine-like creature (larger than a {qovIj}) (n)
(qep’a’ 2019):   “a large animal, like the creatures that accompany
                            the guards on Rura Penthe”
Memory Alpha calls them "jackal mastiffs".
PUN: “White Fang” backwards? (ie. the wolfdog in Jack London’s novel)

Does this refer to Kruge's pet reptile-dog, Warrigul, seen in ST3?

Nope! That's a qovIj.
