Despite his cute appearance, his voice is deep and gruff. When Pakkun, [[Naruto]], [[Sakura]] and [[Shikamaru]] were sent to help [[Sasuke]], he revealed that he is not a battle-type ninja dog, which Sakura claimed to know by looking at his small appearance. In the anime, he revealed that he used Floral Green shampoo (Minty Rain Forest Mist Shampoo with extra bodywash in the English dub), which is also used by Sakura, who was comically traumatised at the thought of using the same shampoo as a dog.
