Weaknesses: -No left eye, so is (Half?) blind

Personality: Very stand off-ish, likes his space, doesnt really know how to talk and intereact with other dogs, will take most approaches as a threat and will go to act to defend...

Other: 'bird' is his only friend, he helped him to escape his miserable life, the bird and the dog found survival much easier by working together. He always listens to bird and does what he says. He has an icy blue eye (fully functional, though turns/tilts head to look at things properly)

I'm afraid your character is significantly unbalanced in terms of strengths and weaknesses. He has 5 strengths; immunity to all forms of poison, great strength, great stamina (these count as two, not one) , dense fur that protects his neck and chest, and good agility. Conversely he only has two weaknesses; being blind in one eye, and blunt claws.

Forgetting to defend himself isn't really a weakness, it's his battle style. Besides that, this point is rendered more or less moot by the fact that you specifically say he is immune to poison and has thick fur around his neck and chest. (Although to be honest in the picture his fur doesn't look that thick). He has these built in defenses so it doesn't necessarily matter that he focuses on offense at the cost of defense.

In order for him to be permitted, you'll have to either reduce his strengths or increase his weaknesses to balance him out.
(also edited the picture a bit too, i hope he looks more prickly now) :)
i made some changes, what do you think now? :)

This is much better, we just have one more point that needs tweaking.

The phrasing of his ability is a little confusing, we think you mean that he is immune to poisons that are liquid, gas or powder, but if you could phrase it as a complete sentence so this is clearer that would be helpful. (As it is written now it's uncertain if you mean what I said above or if he's immune to liquids/powders/gas... if the latter is the case it needs more elaboration to explain what exactly that entails.)
I think i fixed it? :)
