I am a dog person and I love my bettas. He just need to experience the love a betta has to offer. Next time he asks, get him a pretty macho colored male betta and show him how to care for it. Chances are the fish will grow on him and he will understand.
i wasn't trying to generalize all dog lovers but he'd be a tough case to crack and probably wont take much care of it. if he had one, it'll be a small tank and overdue water changes.
imo there are people who dont care much about certain fish that can be made to like them and some that cant be persuaded to do so. my brother is most likely the latter. he has yet to show any interest in betta so far.

ty Oliver, unfortunately thats from a few hours after he arrived into the 2.5g. since then blown tails and biting. his fins are either too large and heavy or simply genetics. his anal fin is as long as his body.
1st pics is from a few weeks in. second is about a week old and rather close to the current status.
