  1. It's an adjective phrase modifying or completing the dog, so it's an objective complement. In the second sentence it is a predicate adjective completing the phrase "your dog is..."

  2. In the first sentence "dog" is the direct object of the verb "keep". In the second, the "dog" is the subject followed by the intransitive verb "is", but still modifies "dog".
