While reading the chapter when Hagrid returns in Order of the Phoenix and Fang greets the trio, I wondered where he was staying before Hagrid came back. There's no mention of him during their lessons with Grubblyplank, and I doubt Hagrid took him with them.

He must be somewhere during Hagrid's absence, so where?

    I think he just stayed in the house at Hogwarts, I imagine someone popped in to feed him whilst Hagrid was away. – Beast-a-tron Nov 14 '14 at 14:48

“There’s nothin’ that lives in the forest that’ll hurt yeh if yer with me or Fang,” said Hagrid.”

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 15: The Forbidden Forest.

This shows that Fang is well used to the Forbidden forest and well aware of the whole forest. He can feed himself for sure, not to mention his long teeth.

“I want Fang,” said Malfoy quickly, looking at Fang’s long teeth.

“All right, but I warn yeh, he’s a coward,” said Hagrid.”

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 15: The Forbidden Forest.

The below phrase just shows Hagrid's love towards his pets and his innocent mindset that his pets can't find food without his help.That innocence had only let him to raise a Dragon in his own small hut.

“An’ someone’ll need ter feed Fang while I’m away.”

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 14: Cornelius Fudge.
