Okay, so Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are my favorite legendaries and I want to know: which do you see them as more of, cats or dogs? I know they're not based off of one animal in particular (based off of legends and myths), but people either call them The Legendary Dogs, Legendary Big Cats, or Legendary Beasts. I'm just curious here.

Myself, I see them all as really modified big cats. Suicune as mostly a leopard, Raikou as a tiger, and Entei as a lion (fu lion).

Well...I have always been puzzled by the term-legendary dogs.

I would say this:
Suincune: WOLF (CANINE)
Entie: LION (FELINE)
Raikou: TIGER (FELINE)

No one can describe what they really are. One looks like a Tiger, One Goat and One has a Lion's face so I voted them as Other Beasts

Definitely Legendary felines, I've always seen them in that way.

I voted felines, but I've heard that about Suicune being based on some other beast before and I actually do think Entei is a bit doggy, despite everyone talking about lions. So maybe I should have voted other beasts as well ^^

I would say legendary cats, but that is just because what I have always heard them referred to as, and I haven't really thought any differently. Suicune though does not have that appearance as a cat though, at least imo.

Entei doesn't look lion-y to me at all. It reminds me of a dog.
Suicune seems like a number of things, I'd say a mix of unicorn (horn-like thing plus little beard and flowy mane) and a feline.
Raikou is more like a tiger than anything else, but it barely even looks like that.

Beasts, not dogs or cats.

Yes , it has a bit Doggy looks also. But I was very fond of it's mane so I thought it looks like a Lion to me

I don't think they are strictly cats and dogs. IMO,
Raikou is a tiger
Entei is a dog
and Suicune is some sort of leopard.

The 3 legendary beasts have characteristics of both felines and canines. Raikou and Suicune look more feline, while Entei looks more canine, IMO.

Everyone around me as a kid called them 'The Legendary Dogs' so it's hard to remove that image of them.

I'll go with beasts though because they don't seem to all represent just one species between them.

They all strike me as big cats, especially Raikou and Entei. Suicune could, in my eyes, go both ways, but in the end I'd still refer to them as simply beasts.

They are, and will always be, legendary dogs to me. Most of the have feline features though so I don't even know where the term 'legendary dogs' came from u.u

Yeaaaah....the idea of them being "Legendary Dogs" was so cemented in my mind that when I saw this thread I had to do a double-take. It almost made me scoff out loud until I actually thought about how they look compared to felines and stuff. That's some hardcore programming, Gamefreak! Like others have said, I don't think I could ever disassociate them from that canine image, though.
