[[caption-width-right:338:Dog Man is go!]]

''Dog Man'' is a series of "[[InsistentTerminology Graphic Novellas]]" created by ''Dav Pilkey'', creator of ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants''. The backstory goes like this: There are 2 cops. There is Officer Knight, who's advantages are his strength, but [[DumbMuscle isn't very smart]], and [[HeroicDog Greg the dog]], who is smart, [[BrainsAndBrawn but his body is his weakness]]. However, one day, [[BigBad Petey the Cat]] plants a bomb, [[WireDilemma and the heroes have to defuse it]]. However, they cut the wrong wire and the bomb explodes. After Greg's body is dying and Knight's head is dying, the doctors [[WeCanRebuildHim sewed Greg's head onto Knight's body]]. And thus, a new crimefighting hero is born! So far, the series has 2 books, with a third coming up soon.

!!Tropes are go!

* EmergencyTransformation: Dog Man was created when a police dog named Greg and a policeman named Officer Knight got into an accident that left Greg's body dying and Knight's head dying, leading to the dog's head being attached to the man's body.
* FurryReminder: Even though he has a human's body, Dog Man is still, well, [[CaptainObvious a dog]]. So he acts exactly like a dog.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: The Chief.
* PaintingTheMedium: There are fake teachers notes included in the first book, including [[{{Jerkass}} the teacher]] stating that Harold [[DisproportionateRetribution needs therapy]] for [[FelonyMisdemeanor being creative]].

* StylisticSuck
* TechnologyMarchesOn: InUniverse example: When [[spoiler:Flippy]] is fighting Flat Petey, he throws [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin obselete goods]]. Including a fax machine, a phone booth, a VCR, and [[TakeThat an Apple Watch]].
* ToiletHumor: Done often.
* TooDumbToLive: Everyone becomes this in ''Book Em', Dog Man'' after Petey removes all of the words in every book in the world. [[spoiler: Well, almost every book.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Bones for Dog Man.
