Official Site BiographyEdit
The ringleader of the neighborhood dogs and chairdog of the Good Ol’ Dogs Club. That is, to the extent that his older brother Fido isn’t around. Bino derives the respect he gets simply by blood relations. For most dogs, that’s good enough, nevermind the fact that Bino is almost nothing like Fido. He’s envious, greedy, stingy, obnoxious, petty, and downright mean, and if you know a little something about dogs, that can rub off rather easily.
His main posse consists of Fox and Rex. Joey sometimes tags along, but because Joey is exceedingly weird and isn’t part of the Good Ol’ Dogs Club proper, he’s often left out.
Bino is constantly scheming to gain something or make someone just suffer. He also has an inflated ego, boasting about skills he doesn't have or trying to make himself look better to the others. While he does come of as a massive jerk, he is just an immature dog with a superiority complex, and just wants people to recognize him on the same level as his popular brother.
Bino is the arrogant and head-strong co-founder of the Good Ol' Dogs Club, along with his brother. Most of his arc appearances involve either his two brothers, King, or Sasha. However, as of Love And War Sasha broke up with Bino. He has since begun dating Duchess, though he seems to be little more than an irritating lackey to her.
Fido is not only Bino's older brother, but also popular. Fido is the role model for all the male-dogs, and the craze for all the female ones. This of course doesn't bode well with Bino, and it causes massive waves in their relationship. Bino commonly refers to Fido as "Lord Byron" in order to convey Fido as stuck-up. Bino was successfully able to usurp Fido as the leader of the Good Ol' Dogs Club after Fido was revealed to be a "cat-lover."
Joey is Bino's younger brother. In contrast to Fido, Joey is the least popular of the brothers, and is considered weird by everyone including Bino. Not much interaction is shown between him and Fido, but according to Fido it seems Joey looks up to him.
Sasha was Bino's girlfriend. It was shown that Bino did seem to care for her more-or-less, though Sasha didn't seem to care about Bino at all, and preferred to flirt with his older brother; Fido. After Sasha broke up with him, he started dating Duchess and seemingly has forgotten about Sasha.
Bino first met Duchess during Show Business, when he found her unconscious in his garden shed. At the end of Love And War they started dating. It has been shown that their relationship is more-or-less one sided, as Bino appears to be infatuated with Duchess, while she seems to just use him as a minion, as she didn't even bail him out of jail when he used his one phone call on her.
Fox was one of Bino's posse members, and was a close friend. Fox followed Bino's schemes, even the insane ones, merely because he still considered Bino a friend due to his loyal nature. Despite this, he sided with King in all of their confrontations and, during the events of Love And War, he realized that Bino only treated him as an underling and subsequently ended the friendship.
Bino once had Peanut removed from the Good Ol' Dog's Club for being a "cat-lover" until Fido reinstated him. In Housepets Christmas, the two were chosen for Secret Santas. He planned to prank Peanut with a catnip bomb, but immediately changed his mind when Peanut gave him a mailman shaped piñata filled with tripe. Since then the two haven't interacted much, although Peanut constantly (and indirectly) one-ups Bino, much to his frustration.
King and Bino don't like each other at all. When King first arrived to Babylon Gardens, Bino played a prank on him, already disliking him for his "pretentious name" (and getting beaten up by Fox afterwards.) Since then the two have expressed a silent loathing for one another. Bino's most antagonistic role was in Not All Dogs, when he threatened to smash King's stopwatch, which was really his Fate, as he didn't want him to have it (although he didn't know what it was.) Like Duchess, he didn't attend his wedding.
Max and Bino are "pet-brothers" as they are both owned by Jeff. Being a cat, Max doesn't get along with Bino, and they tend to argue and even got into a slap fight on the couch. While Bino tries to press superiority over him, Max constantly teases him about his schemes and relationships, and even gave his Mega Ball away to Truck.
- Bino originally was the main character of a comic that Rick Griffin drew when he was a kid. The comic was essentially a Garfield rip-off, and Bino acted more like the titual character than how he does in Housepets!.
- Bino was seemingly originally meant to be a main character, but has become a side character.
- He has mostly become a side character due to the introduction of King, as he only made one appearance in 2014.
- Bino's name is pronounced Bye-no, rather than Bea-no, which had been a subject of debate among fans.
