The official story is that Lockjaw is a Terrigenized dog. There was a story involving Thing wherein Lockjaw talks to him, but it was eventually revealed to have been a practical joke played on him by other Inhumans (I think Gorgon and Karnak). The thinking at the time was that the Inhumans are the good guys, so we can't have them treating a person like a dog.
That said, I've always felt that he should actually be a true Inhuman. Let's face it, Inhuman society has always even been a Eugenics-run Autocracy, that isn't always benevolent. They continue to treat the Alpha Primitives like crap. They segregate their own. There are forced marriages to ensure genetic strength. Etc. Etc. If anyone were Terrigenized into the form of a dog, I have no trouble with believing they would treat the person as a dog. If someone turned into a rat, they'd feed it arsenic or keep it in a tiny cage.
