Black Tooth, a.k.a. "The Kindest Dog in the Country" and White Fang " the "Biggest and Meanest Dog in the USA were never seen on the show except for their furry paws which reached from off camera to interact with Soupy Sales on screen.

Black Tooth, the whiny one, had a black furry paw and White Fang, the gruffer one, sported a white fury paw.

During each program, these hairy paws would jut out in front of the television camera followed by growling or whining sounds which only Soupy Sales seemed to understand.

Frank Nastasi supplied the character's dog like sounds and puppeteer Clyde Adler manipulated the paws from off camera. Of course, these silly off screen canines were not beneath throwing cream pies into Soupy's face.
