I've heard the word 'dog' tossed around some matches and I just wanted to know for sure what the term dog really meant, is it just a derogatory term for t-54 users ?

Yeah, cultural differences can be amusing at times. In the USA "dog" as in "hey dog" can be a term of endearment to a friend. Not so on the Asian server where dog is a very derogatory term.

Once, after being called a dog I saw a player reply calling the first guy a giraffe..........mmmm

Dog as an insult  has pretty bad meaning in Chinese and Korean culture, I believe Japanese as well, however Japanese ppl rarely use strong insults . More like idiot or noisy. Japanese are more leaned to avoid confrontation.

Calling someone a dog in Islamic culture is highly offensive. As I understand it, dogs are considered haram (forbidden) and thus to call a Mislem a dog is a religious insult.

 

And please don't think Islam is strange for considering anything haram (forbidden). All cultures have 'taboos' (things identified by traditional practice as forbidden). For instance, Anglo cultures generally avoid eating horse (or dog, for that matter), but French cultures happily eat horse. You'll find a similar system of taboos in Jewish religion (kosher). Some Christian faiths, such as the Seventh Day Adventists, retain elements of the Judaic kosher practices (as documented in the biblical old testament).

Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us.
