The Dog Man becomes a loyal companion to Prendick, believing in his authority and the Law even after the other Beast Folk have abandoned it. After society has crumbled, the Dog Man protects Prendick from the others until it too regresses into a complete animal and is eventually killed by the Hyena-Swine. Prendick’s association with the Dog Man bears a light narrative parallel to Moreau and his hound.
