Doogans are dog-like creatures in the Paper Mario series. The badge shop owner Rowf and his son Rhuff, who can be found in east Toad Town in Paper Mario, are the first Doogans to make an appearance. However, they are the only ones of their kind found in the game. The species had no name until Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, which also portrayed most Doogans as thugs that frequented Rogueport and the Glitz Pit.
