So my boyfriend says he wants a dog ... what kind of dog? Well this sent us on a wild ride through the internet to see what dog would be the best! It took a while, but I soon thought hey ... why don't we get a real life Pluto!? But what kind of dog is Pluto supposed to be? :)
The first time Pluto appeared in a Disney cartoon was way back in 1931! He stars alongside Mickey in "The Moose Hunt", check it out below!
In this cartoon, Pluto was thought to be a bloodhound - with features such as long droopy ears, a wrinkled face and the fact than he's sniffing around the ground a lot of the time!
However, 20 years later in the 1951 cartoon "R'Coon Dawg", Pluto is portrayed a little differently...
In this short, Pluto is thought to be a Redbone Coonhound ... mainly because he's helping Mickey hunt a raccoon! The Redbone Coonhound is a breed of dog widely used for hunting bear, raccoon and cougar. Coonhounds are in the same group as the breed Bloodhound, but they have a lot less skin. You'll notice that Pluto's skin isn't nearly as droopy as a Bloodhounds, further confirming that Pluto is most likely a Redbone Coonhound!
So what does a Redbone Coonhound look like in real life?
How cute!? But what's cuter than a dog? ... That's right ... a puppy!!
Cuteness overload!! Waaaah! lol!
So there you have it :) When we can get a dog, we shall get a Redbone Coonhound and call in Pluto! :D
Happy Thursday everyone! :)
