This is an example of how Linton was portrayed as a weak character.
Animal imagery is used throughout the novel as a means of indirect characterization.
Heathcliff's description of the incident shows his concern and love for Catherine, and his resentment for Linton.

"Having no excuse for lingering longer, I slipped out while Linton was engaged in timidly rebuffing the advances of a friendly sheep dog"
Ch. 20 p 202

"A tiger or venomous serpent could not rouse terror in me equal to that which he wakens"
pg. 143 p 4
Here, Mr. Lockwood shows his contempt and fear towards Heathcliff during his first night at the Grange.
