October Jones was born and raised in Birmingham, England, where, ironically, he spent most of his childhood terrified of dogs. He has worked on animation projects for the BBC, as well as music videos for UK comedy band The Amateur Transplants. Dog is the runt of a five-puppy litter born on a farm in Wales. He was the last to be sold, and arrived in Birmingham slighted and grouchy. He spends most of his time napping, snacking, trying to figure out who the second dog in the bedroom mirror is, and, of course, texting.
