Before the events of Diabolical Box, he was a miner working for Duke Herzen to get gold from the mines. He realized something was amuck with the mine and later on quit. Soon, other residents started to quit and even leave the town. Dogey is found on the northeastern most area of the large city. He is at the end of the street that is guarded by Precious. As the game progresses, Layton and Luke must conduct an investigation of northern Folsense. This leads to them going down these roads and bumping into Dogey. When they talk to him, Dogey says that he was a miner and never got around to leaving. He informs Layton of the dangerous curse that surrounded the mine and goes on his way. He is a little bulky and wears a hat. Dogey, except giving the information about the mine and a puzzle, doesn't do much throughout the game.
Until it closed, Dogey worked in the Folsense mine, where he spent long hours excavating precious metals. The rumour in Folsense is Joanie has Dogey in the palm of her hand and he'd bend over backward to make her happy.
