Full Answer

There has been some confusion over whether Pluto and Goofy are both dogs because their presentation is so different. Pluto is treated as a pet by the other characters, while Goofy, despite also being a dog, is treated like any other of the anthropomorphic characters. Disney states that Goofy was originally conceived as a human character with the physical characteristics of a dog.
