I go by the Disney definition. If it wears clothing, it is a person. If it does not, it is an animal. I would add language and tool use. Pluto once used a record player by using his tail as the needle, I don't think that counts though.
In Dungeons and Dragons your creatures would be called monstrous humanoids. Even animals risen to human intelligence but retaining animal form were reclassified as magical beasts. The point being that however much hair you have, however long and sharp your nails and teeth are, however beastly seaming something is, people act one way and animals another. Beings that talk, wear clothing, use tools, and above all else, reason, ARE NOT and CAN NOT be animals.

So to you, an animal could be called anthropomorphic if, for example, they had hair and were wearing accessories such as a watch, but they still walked on all fours. Correct? But, then they would also resemble a human which is the definition of humanoid: "having an appearance or character resembling that of a human." Or are the only humanoid if they stand like humans and are as intelligent as humans.

Well no, anthropomorphic is the the two arms two legs head at the top walks upright form. It is possible for unthinking creatures to look anthropomorphic.
Anthropomorphic and humanoid are not prerequisites for being intelligent.

On the other hand if a dog puts on a watch looks at it and goes oh my God it's two O'clock already I'm late for my dentist appointment jumps in a car and drives away it is no longer an animal. It is the putting on clothing, taking in sentences, and driving a car that makes the dog not an animal.

Animals behave like animals. People behave like people. Shape is irrelevant to the matter
