Benny Ref by Gleadless Benny Ref by Gleadless
Ref sheet for my dog OC in :iconchernobyl-curs:
We also hopes to be teaming up with ~Rennastar's dog: Konstantin - [link]
{[ Since my laptop with Photoshop Elements has died, I have been resigned to drawing on...GIMP...;-;. Hence the poor quality of this image, please to forgive me ]}

Made a complicated family tree earlier to work out his percentages of dog breeds, I thought I'd give a rough indication of them :
Fox Terrier - 75%
Azawakh - 14%
Other - 11%

Height: 23 inches at the shoulder
Weight: 32lbs
Age: 3 1/2
Breed base: Fox terrier and a leetle tiny winy bit of azawakh, seriously, hardly ANY of that in there (fancy african greyhound)
Gender: Male
You know that feeling you get when you know you're being watched? He gets that feeling very strongly if he feels he is about to be ambushed, and although he cannot pinpoint the source (or where they're hiding) it does make him a little more alert, giving him a better chance of being able to flee or attempt a quick barrage of bites in an attempt to confuse the enemy before taking off.
:bulletwhite:Extremely agile physically
:bulletyellow:His fur is very coarse and wiry, this makes it difficult for other dogs to injure him effectively as it acts as a car 'crumple zone' taking some of the force from their attacks.
:bulletorange:Completely deaf in his left ear, due to an aggressive ear infection 2 years ago.
:bulletyellow:Bald patch near his bumbum, this is very sensetive and happened when harsh chemicals were spilled onto his fur, whilst it doesn't hurt as much any more, it's a major weak spot because it's so easy to tear.
:bulletwhite:He also suffers from partial epileptic seizures, this can cause anthing from muscle spazm to a state of unconciousness and whilst this is obviously not fatal, it could be in a fight as if he suddenly has a seizure, this could create a gap for the enemy to attack him from.
He smart |D
If he feels he has completely lost any dominance he had over a situation (eg. no escape from something he feels he needs to desperately get away from) he can get quite agressive and snappy. However he's a sweetheart, if he meets a friendly dog he's more kind and sweet because he treats others kindly if they treat him kindly but if he meets a dog who's more of a bully, he'll become more reserved and seclude himself, because his feelings can get hurt easily even though he covers it up with his 'tough' bravado he's quite a softie. He's generally very good naturned and sweet he enjoys being cheeky and making other laugh because he believes laughter to be one of the best ice breakers, that and his cheeky sarcastic remarks.
Originally from Yorkshire, he was bought by a kindly old man when he was almost 7 months old and went to live with him and his other dog named Stan, he was treated with kindness and loved his master in return, they were practically inseperable. Their master (Mr. Drakeson) was in a small group of elderly and retired folk who enjoyed travelling and such, they even went on trips from time to time and on one occasion decided to visit Ukraine, and went on a day trip to view Pripyat. This proved to be a bad decision as Mr Drakeson along with several other old people were attacked by a pack of wild dogs looking for an easy meal, Benny and Stan fought hard to protect their master, sustaining many superficial cuts and wounds themselves, they managed, to chase off the dogs with relative ease as these dogs weren't in the best condition after going so long without food.
One of the group tour leaders managed to send for help and Mr Drakeson was taken away in an ambulance, as he had been wounded quite gravely, the last words he said to them as he was taken inside the ambulance along with the small troop of elderly folk was 'Good boys. Stay' and so Benny and Stan stayed, and have waited in Pripyat for the past 1 1/2 years for Mr Drakeson's return.
Chewy things, like dead rats and such. Stan , small things that dart around frantically, dim light in the darkness (he finds it both fascinating and beautiful)
Dogs with little to no appreciation of hygiene, rabbits cats and squirrels (he has been injured by the latter).

Your character seems well balanced, and we'll go ahead and invite him to the group. However we'd like you to explain what exactly you mean by him being "agile mentally" because that doesn't really make sense. If you mean he's intelligent, that should go under personality, not strengths. (Although being agile physically is a good strength.)

We look forward to your partner's reference!
