When do we use Andere and Anderen?

How does one differentiate 'Other' from 'Different'?

Context. For example, in this sentence, translating it as "different" would make no sense.

Can we also use: 1. Waar zit de andere honden? 2. Waar ligt de andere honden?

What is the correct context for each?

You can use 'zitten' and 'liggen'. The context is that the dogs are actually sitting or lying down. Truth to be told, 'Waar zijn de andere honden?' is most common. ('Zitten' is not really used, unless you know that they are sitting!).
