“Houn' Dawg” is a non-anthropomorphic dog.
The otherwise-nameless "Houn' Dawg" of cantankerous hillbilly Hard-Haid Moe is far from as ferocious as his master would wish, being instead a lazy, old, toothless thing who spends his days napping, a silent, complacent, heedless listener for Moe's rants and ravings. It takes much to spook him enough to shake off his lethargy, and even then, he's fairly useless, though he does have a decent sense of smell.
Behind the scenesEdit
Houn' Dawg first appeared in 1964 in It's Music? alongside his master.
