First appearance Dogzilla

Dogzilla is a dog monster created by Dav Pilkey that appears in the 1993 children's book Dogzilla.


Dogzilla's name comes from "dog" and the name of the iconic monster which it is parodying, "Godzilla".


Dogzilla is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi with black-and-white-colored fur and wears a red spiked collar.


Professor Scarlett O'Hairy concludes that Dogzilla is a creature with origins dating back to millions of years ago.



It is summer, and the city of Mousopolis is holding its First Annual Barbecue Cook-Off, but the scent of barbecue sauce awakens Dogzilla, who emerges from a volcano. Soldiers, led by the Big Cheese, were dispatched to fight Dogzilla. However, Dogzilla used its doggy breath to repel the mice. Forced to retreat, the mice unknowingly lure Dogzilla to Mousopolis. Dogzilla terrorizes the city by doing normal dog things that have an exaggerated effect.

After some plotting, the mice assembled in the center of Mousopolis and blasted Dogzilla with water. "It's BATHTIME!" Dogzilla ran off, went back into the volcano (as it hated baths), and never returned. In a year's time, Mousopolis was rebuilt for the Second Annual Barbecue Cook-Off. All seems peaceful; however, something unexpected happens: Dogzilla's puppies emerge from the volcano.


Doggy breath

Dogzilla can release a foul-smelling breath of air from its mouth.


Within the span of a year, Dogzilla gave birth to a number of puppies that emerged from the volcano.


Dogzilla hates baths, and will try to avoid getting soaked in water.
