Official Site BiographyEdit

Fido is the pet community’s leader, working hard every day to help the pets in need, promote adoptions, and keep the peace between cat and dog. On top of that, he was hired on by the local police department for their K-9 program, participates in a number of track and field tournaments, and teaches pups to read in his spare time.
Isn’t he just disgusting?
Not all is liver and potpourri, as Fido has found himself, through a series of poor choices as a pup, in the arms of a cat. Sabrina is Fido’s secret girlfriend, and despite Fido’s strongest attempts to keep everything hush-hush, Sabrina has needs to fulfill. Such as having Fido take care of every little forest critter she was told to get rid of. Fido helps out of the goodness of his heart, but probably also out of the goodness of something else. A recent case he’s deigned to take care of is a mouse named Spo, who Fido has grown rather attached to.

General InformationEdit

Fido generally is a very decent, humble, and honest dog. He claims his many social activities are just him following the role that all dogs should, and does his best to help anyone. However he has issues trying to hide his secret relationship.

Fido first appeared early in Housepets!, having returned from "the Academy". He has since appeared many times, usually with other members of the K-9 Unit(his police unit). During his first appearance his romantic relationship with the cat Sabrina D'Angelo was revealed, and has since been brought up on many occasions. Not long after being introduced he started taking care of a sickly mouse named Spo, who has since stuck around on his head. While not as main as other characters, he has been given the spotlight an a few arcs, such as The Case of the Aztec GoldJungle Fever .



Sabrina was Fido's secret cat girlfriend. They are very much committed to each other, though things got a little complicated during Jungle Fever. Fido is very nervous and tries to keep their relationship a secret, Sabrina on the other hand doesn't seem to care too much.


Being brothers you'd think they would have a good relationship right? Wrong. While Fido tries to be friendly towards Bino, Bino is very dismissive and jealous of his brother. Bino often tries to make people think that Fido is a "glory-sponge", but in reality he does it because he believes people don't notice him when Fido is around. He often refers to Fido as "Lord Byron" sarcastically.


While not much of their relationship is shown, they do seem to hold a "Older-bro & Younger-bro" relationship. It is implied that Joey looks up to Fido, and perhaps wants to make him proud despite being regarded as weird by many.


Fox and Fido have been friends since they where young, and held a strong friendship. Fido even claimed Fox to be his best friend during A Sinister Shadow. Though after Jungle Fever their relationship has seemed to decline, but as of I Need A Vacation, Fox has expressed distrust in rekindling their friendship.


Fido is generally nice to Peanut, and Peanut respects him in return. Fido even re-instated Peanut into the "Good Ol' Dogs' Club" after he was dismissed due being a cat-lover (though it's possible that he was blackmailed). Not much of their relationship has been shown since then, except they seemed to have hung out when both of their girlfriends went to Australia during Heaven's Not Enough, Part 3.


Aside from Squeak, Fido is Spo's only real friend. Fido took him in after Sabrina begged him to rescue him, and has been living with Fido ever since. He often rides on Fido's head and accompanies him when he's on duty as a police officer. Spo often rants to Fido about mundane things, and he can be bothersome at times, but he has given him valuable advice during difficult situations.


  • Fido is another character from Rick Griffin's old "Bino" comic, along with Bino and Joey.
