The term demidog/demi-dog, meaning half-dog, is commonly used to describe small/midsized "dogs" though they may look,smell & sound like a dog they arent. They often lack personality, playful,& exciting lives. They arent big enough to be a dog,often times prance around,shake,yap for no real reason,snort,cant scratch or clean themselves properly,& look as if something went wrong in the breeding. Demis are seen dressed up,carried,& better taken care of than often times the kids in the family;can end up replacing them.
