He is a large, orange-brown, muscular dingo with green eyes and yellow hair although it is green in the comic, and wears green shorts, purple glasses, brown gloves, a brown belt with silver buckle and gold earring. He speaks with a stereotypical Australian accent. His outward demeanor denotes a tough person but he is quite soft deep inside. His left leg is also roboticized. He does not have a bounty hunter emblem like Sleet does.
Originally an independent contractor with Sleet but later he was hired by Doctor Robotnik, along with Sleet, to hunt down the royal family. Dingo quickly develops a crush on Sonia the Hedgehog, which she often uses to her advantage. Dingo is also very gullible, doing whatever Sleet tells him to do, and frequently not understanding an insult or parts of a sentence. An example of Dingo's stupidity is when Sleet hunts down the Queen Aleena ferry in Port Mobius. He succeeds in finding it using a submarine's periscope and declares it a 'sitting duck', but Dingo misunderstood him and asks why they are going to sink a duck. Another example would be when Sleet says, "In your case that would be an improvement", which is an insult to Dingo saying that he would look better roboticized. Dingo foolishly answers, "Really? Thanks!" not knowing that Sleet's meaning was rather sardonic in nature.
Dingo's only real usefulness is in his odd ability to change shape. When Sleet presses the button on his remote, Dingo can turn into any solid object or life form. Such items he has disguised himself as include a chili dog stand, a fly, a baby, a venus flytrap, an old man, other people, a basket and a woman. Despite this, he consistently retains his orange and yellow colors and voice patterns. Sometimes during transformations, Dingo can be heard to say, "Oh, not again!", implying that he does not enjoy shape-shifting. It is shown that he has no control over what he turns into, Sonic at one point convincing Dingo that Sleet will betray him by turning him into a bug and squashing him in order to get both their wages from Robotnik. This turns out to be correct as Sleet was making such a bargain with Robotnik while the Hedgehogs were attempting to escape.
He has also displayed a degree of above average strength, with effort even being able to bend iron bars. He has also been shown to be an adequate pilot and marksman, capable of piloting his and Sleet's trademark vehicle and even being able to force Sonia to take a path which ruined her newest outfit against her wishes.
Despite (or even due to) his incompetence, Dingo can be quite dangerous. While disguised, he can become a dangerous trap in waiting.
- He cannot pronounce the word independent.
- Dingo was voiced by Peter Wilds.
- It is never stated why Dingo's leg is roboticized. The only assumption being that it was roboticized prior to meeting Dr. Robotnik.
