You are the main character, and you are on a quest to find the Legendary Flower to cure your sibling. Between your hometown and the numerous villages on The Dog Island, you will meet many dogs and a few other creatures. The dogs are of all different breeds, and many will have a task for you to complete.


Dog Island Alex.jpg

Alex is the stay-at-home Black Labrador, who likes reading books more than anything else. He also assumes that he is the riddle master and will challenge you to four riddles throughout the game. He is Amalia's brother and, in her opinion, is just lazy and too old to be sitting around. Alex also lives next door to Amalia, his house being a giant book.

If you speak to Alex, and you're not supposed to be solving a riddle, he can detect how much health you have; if all your hearts are red, he will say "It's good to see you looking well", whereas if any of your hearts are black he will say that you look sick.


DogIsland alice.jpg

Alice is Noble's maid, and is a Poodle. She'll help her little princely-paws if he is going to get into trouble, even if it means taking a key from the master without permission.


DogIsland alphonso.jpg

Alphonso is a Rottweiler and he greets visitors coming from Zoomy Lake.


DogIsland amalia.jpg

Amalia is the kind Yellow Labrador Retriever who will show you the way to Dr. Potan's clinic and help you get started on your journey. Although she doesn't always get along with her brother, Alex, she'll get along with everyone else just fine. If you are a boy dog, she'll show interest in you and ask you out on a date. If you refuse, she won't speak to you for the rest of the game. She will ask you to make her stew.



Amedio, a Pug, is your hometown friend along with Viviana. He likes to go to the Puroro Town Festival with you and will send you a letter when you're on your journey. If you're playing a girl character, he hints that he may even like you romantically.

Anc Queen[edit]

Dog Island AncQueen.jpg

The Anc Queen has sent your friend Petasi down to the Land of Dogs as punishment for being a brat. She's saddened by the news that dogs have all but forgotten to thank Mother Nature for her bounty (spoiler: nature worship) and believes this is the reason for the deterioration of her homeworld. You can help her by retrieving the Stone of the Heavens for use in the Star Festival.

Ancient Monster[edit]

The Dog Island Ancient Monster.jpg

This malevolent guardian of the Stone of the Heavens will stop at nothing to keep you out of his lair. Find the right buttons, and you'll have no problem with this pile of bones.


DogIsland andrea.jpg

Andrea the Great Dane stays in the town square by your Anc Tree. She's very impressed by all the shops Pupsville has to offer. When you are saying good-bye to everyone near the end of the game, she comments on how she'll tell her fellows about how she helped you, although she never did.


DogIsland balthazar.jpg

Balthazar, a Doberman, runs the complicated mining machinery used to get water for his village. He shows his importance by saying how there is little water underground, but that is odd, since the Chiro Caves are full of water. Maybe the water is bad or too tricky to get without being mauled by bats.


DogIsland bernard.jpg

He's the cook aboard El Dorado's ship, and he requires fish for dinner. You get some time off of scrubbing the deck on your second day at sea to fish up a Sea Bass and a Pacific Saury for him. You even get a Fishing Rod out of the deal! If you collect extra fish, he will gladly take them off your paws and give you Woofs for them. He is a Shiba Inu.


DogIsland bill.jpg

Bill, a Bull Terrier, is the ex-leader of the Victory Gang. He'd like to turn them back into nice dogs, but he's pretty busy working for Isaki as a fisherdog. If you find his Victory Gang badge, maybe the other dogs will listen to you.


Dog Island Boris.jpg

Boris is a Dalmatian and a delivery man with a bad sense of direction. But once you've helped him overcome this, he'll happily take you to any village you've been to before on the Island, and a few outside areas too. So if you're in Pupsville and you want to get to the Chilly Fields in double quick time, you know who to talk to!


Preferring to keep to himself, Brian is in the building labeled "A House." He says the house near the lake is his, even though there is no such house.


DogIsland cameron.jpg

Cameron, a Papillon, sells accessories up north, which, if you want to be a pirate, is the only place to get an Eyepatch.


Camille runs an inn in the desert. Make good use of her services if you get poisoned in South Sandy Desert. Obaba's Antidote costs two Woofs more and doesn't even heal the hearts you've lost!


DogIsland camu.jpg

Camu, a Jack Russell Terrier, likes to play hide-and-seek and is more than willing to take you out on a date if you're playing as a girl dog. He is also a member of the Victory Gang.


DogIsland carol.jpg

Carol, a Beagle, is the proprietor of the Zoomy Village Accessory Shop.


Casbal is a rude little dog in one of the houses labeled "A House." Don't listen to him when he says you are too weak and small to run away from a buffalo. He should be pleased if you have a Silver on hand. when speaking to him, he will rob you of your Silver.


The Dog Island Cherry.jpg

Cherry, a Welsh Corgi, is the Flower Collector, and, while there are no missions associated with her, if you want to sell your flowers or earn the Flower Master Decorations, you'll be spending some time with her in the building labeled "A House."


DogIsland clark.jpg

Clark is a Pekingese and another Victory Gang dog, and his main hobby is catching bugs. He'll challenge you at some point, and if you win, you get the Bug Cage and the ability to catch bugs for the rest of the game. He ends most of his sentences with "man" and can't pronounce the word necessary. If you give him the Cabbage Butterfly before you help Amalia with her brother, he'll admit that she's really cool, suggesting that he might like her a bit.


The Dog Island Darna.jpg

Darna is a Border Collie. She is the Food Collector, appropriately stationed in the Restaurant. You don't ever have to talk to Darna, but if you want to unload some Food or you want to fill out the Food Collector book, you'll need to do some business with her.


Derrick is the Bug Collector who stays in a room in Noble's house with Kristina and Dougal. If you find any bugs while roaming around The Dog Island, Derrick's the one who can take them off your hands. He is alao an Akita.

Doluk / Doroken[edit]

Your father is either Doluk or Doroken depending on what gender you are and whether you have a younger brother or sister. Although you never actually see him during gameplay, you are told that he went to The Dog Island a long time ago to find a remedy for your sibling's illness, but he never came back. This is the reason why Mar wasn't sure about letting you go to the Island. If you make it through the credits at the end of the game, you'll see the family reunion when an old friend accompanies him back home. Your father, like everyone in your family, will be the same breed you choose for your character.

  • Places: You never get to interact with your father, but if you wait until after the credits at the end of the game, you will see him in a cutscene.

  • Places: Dr. Hill is only seen in a cutscene at the beginning of the game in Puroro Town.

Dr. Potan[edit]

DogIsland potan.jpg

Dr. Potan is the doctor on The Dog Island. He lost his girlfriend long ago, and visits her grave on the day she died each month. Your sibling may be suffering from the same sickness that killed her, which makes him more than willing to help you. He had been holding a grudge with Obaba about his girlfriend's death, but eventually forgives her. Despite the fact that a Beagle's sense of smell is 55 times more powerful than a human's, he doesn't really know how to sniff. In a letter he may show romantic feelings for Mar.


DogIsland eisman.jpg

Eisman is a Chihuahua, and believe it or not, eisman is the German word for "ice cream." Very handy, considering he lives in the middle of the desert!

Your brother or sister is sick with a dangerous illness that has no cure, or so the doctors say. Your sibling hates being sick and will try hard to fight against it.

Your brother or sister, like everyone in your family, will be the same breed you choose for your character.

All because of an incident that happened when she was a child, and because of that she decided to become a nurse, but now the Victory Gang Dogs like to pick on her. Francis, like Alex and Obaba, will comment on your health if she doesn't have a mission or other information for you.


This is the innkeeper up north. If you've tangled with some Polar Bears or you just want to get out of the cold, he'll let you rest up in one of his beds for only 1 Woof.

Gentle Bear[edit]

He is, as the name suggests, a bear that is very kind. The fact that he is bright pink also makes him stand out in a bear crowd! With some honey from Ohlala, he'll help by being the beast in the circus. He sees a great honey-making opportunity!

DogIsland giraffe.jpg

He is the bossy Bichon Frise, owner of the fashion boutique in Pupsville. Talk to his sales dog Hope to purchase some accessories or create your own.

Mr. Postman

When you meet this friendly Bulldog, not only can you save the game, but you can receive letters (and send them on some occasions) too! You can find him in Puroro Town, on El Dorado's Ship, and his twin brother (who is also called Mr. Postman, and wears the same hat, so he's basically the same dog) is in Pupsville.

Nameless dog[edit]

There are a few inns in the game that have a dog behind the counter where you can't speak to him. These dogs might actually have names, but you can't get close enough to see them.

DogIsland obaba.jpg

She is a brown-and-white Shih Tzu, and she is also a healer. Since she couldn't cure one specific patient, not many dogs come to her anymore, and they think her ways of curing dogs are just voodoo or superstition. Who was the dog she could not cure? She says, "It was that doctor's… girlfriend…"

Petasi will be with you throughout the game, giving you hints on what to do next and making suggestions. You will also see him in your menu screen, jumping from option to option as you select them. Petasi was tasked with planting and growing an Anc Tree before he can return to his home land. The tree grows by its owner receiving appreciation, so you can help Petasi by helping dogs and receiving their gratitude.


Noble's son (and known to Alice as princely-paws), is a Yorkshire Terrier like his father. He is shy and secretly in love with Amalia. His success with her depends on whether you are a boy or a girl. He tries to overcome his anxieties when Malshige asks him to be a model at a fashion show.

DogIsland Tao.jpg

Your final sniff trainer, a West Highland White Terrier, Tao is somewhat of a hermit, living alone far up in the mountains. Tao can level you all the way up to Grand Sniff Master, which gives you all ten hearts in your life meter. He's insistent that you help other dogs and learn as many scents as you can. When you've learned 100 scents and your Anc Tree has grown tall enough, you'll be given the scents for the two pieces of the Book of the Sniff Master, and the key to Kunka Ruins, where you'll find the Sniff Master Medal.

He likes to make out that he's some sort of sniffing superstar, but in reality he's one of Rode's dropouts.
