I'm reading a book that I've read in hardback a few times. It was/is one of my favorites of Dean Koontz books and it was offered on Bookbub, so I downloaded it on my Kindle. It's Watchers and it's about two dogs who escape from a research facility. The golden retriever is loving and kind and the other is a monstrosity and he knows he is ugly. He hates himself and anyone who might catch a glimpse of him. He also has a mental connection with the golden, so he is tracking him. He hates the golden because he was so well loved in the research lab. Both are highly intelligent and capable of reasoning. The monstrosity is killing, gutting and removing eyes of people as he hunts for the golden. They are both the product of gene manipulation.
