Bones, or Bony, is a male non-anthropomorphic dog.
The extremely bony dog of Horace the Caretaker (hence his name) is as afraid of the ghosts of the Haunted Mansion as his master, sticking close to him on his nightly rounds and shivering. However, like Horace himself, Bones enjoys the company of his old mistress's ghost enough to make up for it.
Behind the scenes
The Caretaker's Dog first appeared in 1969 in The Haunted Mansion. He was referred to as “Bony” in the Ghost Gallery, a name altered to simply “Bones” during at least one Walt Disney World meet'n'greet event.
