Dog of the Geek: Fang!

fangBreed: Boarhound (in the book), Neapolitan Mastiff (in the films)

Original Appearances: The Harry Potter books and films

Other Appearances: No doubt Fang appears in some merchandise.

Biography: Despite his enormous size, Fang is “a bloody coward,” according to his owner, Hagrid. Fang is very boisterous and loving with people he knows, Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, for instance. In The Philosopher's Stone (US Title: The Sorcerer's Stone), Fang accompanies Harry, Hagrid, Ron, and Hermione into the Forbidden Forest to look for an injured unicorn. In The Chamber of Secrets, Harry and Ron take Fang into the Forest where he is scared stiff of the gigantic acromantula (spider) and Mr. Weasley's flying car. In The Half-Blood Prince, Fang barely survives being burnt alive when a Death Eater sets fire to Hagrid's hut, but Hagrid saves him. In The Deathly Hallows, Fang participates in the Battle of Hogwarts, although his role is unspecified. He's last seen running away after a shattered vase frightens him.
