Oliver & Company characters
Dodger is a sly kind of dog that resides in New York city in Fagin's group in their home off the pier. He is the leader of the group, but he is very laid back. Dodger is first seen tricking Oliver into getting him hot dogs, even though Oliver was thinking they'd share. Dodger makes his way back to his home not knowing that Oliver was following him. Dodger accepts Oliver into his group, and he treats him like family like the other pets.
Dodger isn't afraid to stand up to Roscoe or Desoto, and will protect his friends from them, even Oliver. Though he doesn't have as big of a role teaching Oliver street smarts like Rita does, he has a huge part in "rescuing" Oliver from Jenny, even though Oliver wasn't in any danger, and was offended when Oliver called Jenny's place home, feeling that the kitten was ungrateful about living in their place. Later, he saved Jenny and Oliver from Sykes and his two Dobermans, but he was injured in the fight with the dogs, managing to beat them. Dodger is last seen leaving Jenny's birthday party, after having spent some time there with Oliver.
