I really fooled the Lion Guard, didn't I?
Under the instruction of his mother Reirei, Dogo gets himself chased by Janja and his clan. Just in time, the Lion Guard comes to his aid, and Dogo begs to come to the Pride Lands with them. Seeing as he's all alone, Kion agrees, and Dogo gives a happy yip of excitement. Unbeknownst to the Lion Guard, Dogo's yips serve as a signal to Reirei, who leads her family into the Pride Lands after Dogo.
Once in the Pride Lands, Dogo is left on a hillside by the Lion Guard, where he encounters his parents. Reirei praises her son for his quick thinking but gently chides him for listening to the Lion Guard. Shortly after this, Dogo and his brothers invade a series of aardvark warrens, and they are confronted by Kion, who accuses Dogo of having claimed to have no family. Dogo replies that he had simply said he was alone, and Reirei begs the Lion Guard to let her stay with her son. Begrudgingly, Kion agrees.
With the Lion Guard gone, Reirei sings "Jackal Style" to Dogo and his brothers, teaching them how to act like jackals. In doing so, the jackals get in trouble with a group of Pridelanders, who don't appreciate thievery. Kion approaches the jackals, but Reirei once more gets her and her family out of trouble. She even convinces Kion to let them attend Kupatana.
At Kupatana, Dogo joins his family in attacking the Pridelanders, but he is stopped by Bunga, who declares that the little jackal isn't cute anymore. Simba himself approaches and roars, scaring Reirei into leading her family back into the Outlands.
Being only a pup, Dogo is small and slight, with a light brown pelt, and a tan muzzle, paws, and underbelly. A thick black stripe runs down his back, ending in a short tuft on his head, and his tail is tipped with black. He stands out from the rest of his brothers by his blue eyes and the spots on his shoulders.
Personality and traits
Despite his fluffy exterior, Dogo is not a jackal to overlook. Raised by a sly and scheming mother, Dogo uses his innocent looks to his advantage, winning the trust of others in order to take advantage of them, and any shame he shows from doing so is an act, as he'd been taught to do by his mother. However, he still has much to learn, as he can be seen taking instruction from his mother, who teaches him how to be a jackal.
The Lion King Wiki has a collection of images and media related to Dogo.
