in spoken Finnish you'll always refer to people with either their names or the "it" pronoun. Dogs are, however, always "he/she/they". Because Dogs are better than us.

"he/she/they" = our only 3rd person pronoun, which in itself is gender-neutral, completely.

and of course in written/literal Finnish dogs are "it" and people are "they". but in spoken Finnish the rules don't exist and therefore dogs are better and more human than humans are.
