Unhappiness exists ultimately because the biological capacity to be unhappy has evolved. And it would seem that this biological capacity has reached its culmination in Homo sapiens...Man may be the only animal that is capable of genuine unhappiness - and that is at least in part because he has evolved, as compared with other animals, so much adaptability, so much intelligence, and therefore so much conscious awareness of the self and its needs." The Evolution of Evil - Timothy Anders

..."A dog, Buddha-nature" - there is no need for "nature." "A dog is Buddha" - "is" is superfluous. "A dog, Buddha" - still redundant. "Dog!" - that's is enough! Or just "Buddha!" You have said too much when you say "A dog is Buddha." "Dog!" - That is all. It is completely Buddha.
