DebianDog – a very small Debian Live CD shaped to look and act like Puppy Linux. Debian structure and Debian behaviour are untouched and Debian documentation is 100% valid for DebianDog. You have access to all debian repositories using apt-get or synaptic.

The Devuan/Debian/Ubuntu-based Dogs do however also come in several flavours being specially crafted from official Debian or Ubuntu official distributions; nowadays using official debootstrap script and then modified in-house by current maintainer(s).

BusterDog, based on the Debian ‘Buster’ branch but without systemd.
It’s using special method (taken from AntiX) to avoid systemd by replacing systemd with ‘elogind’.

FossaDog is a fork of “DebianDog” with the difference that it’s Ubuntu based.
TrinityDog is a fork of “DebianDog” with a basic Trinity Desktop Environment.

The first release took place April 16, 2014: DebianDog – Wheezy.
