His out look on the world is simple, he does good things he is a good dog if he does bad things he is a bad dog. After he and the other animal units escape their prison his one main thought is HOME, finding somewhere he can call home. He is able to speak but nothing more than three word blurbs. Unable to live without the medication he along with the other animal units were given while at the Government he and his "friends" deteriorate over their time outside the compound.
