Personality
Scooby-Doo and Shaggy share several personality traits, mostly being scared easily. But their friends (Velma, Daphne and Fred) encourage them to go after the costumed villains usually with “Scooby Snacks”, a biscuit-like dog treat (usually shaped like a bone).

In all appearances, Scooby has some difficulty with spoken pronunciation (because he is a dog), he tends to pronounce most words as if they begin with an “R”. His catch phrase, usually howled at the end of every episode, is “Scooby-Dooby-Doo!” or “Rooby-Rooby-Roo”.

Appearance
Scooby is brown from head to toe with several distinctive black spots on his upper body. He is generally on four legs, but displays ‘human’ characteristics occasionally. He has a black nose and wears an off-yellow, diamond shaped-tagged blue collar with an “SD” (short for Scooby-Doo). He has four toes on each foot and unlike other dogs, Scooby only has one pad on the sole of each of his feet. According to the official magazine that accompanied the 2002 movie, Scooby was seven years old (forty-nine in dog years) and is a Great Dane.

Scooby’s Most Famous Relative:
Over the years of Scooby-Doo’s appearances, various relatives of Scooby were introduced, however the most popular proved to be:

Scrappy-Doo: Scooby Doo’s young nephew (and son of Scooby’s sister Ruby-Doo), Scrappy is the bravest of Scooby’s relatives. Scrappy became a recurring character in the Scooby-Doo series beginning in 1979, and was noted for being quite headstrong and always wanting to face off in a fight against the various villains (unlike his uncle). Scooby and Shaggy were present at Scrappy’s birth.
