He was seen with Buster and the other junkyard dogs trying to throw his hat around. At first, it looked like he captured Buster; however, he escaped and got the best of him. Later, he caught Reggie after he was chasing Scamp and Angel. Eventually, due to Buster's actions, he captured Scamp without a collar and took him to the pound. When he confronts Scamp and Tramp and is ready to capture them, Angel suddenly attacks him from behind. He panics as he tries to removes her but his net gets caught on the hook and he hits the wall hard. Becoming dizzy after hitting the wall, he says that the fireworks are lovely and he passes out.
In one of the Disney adventure comics, he also ended up getting arrested when, while trying to hunt down Scamp and Angel, he accidentally put his net on a bunch of wigs at a wig shop and on its owner, which resulted in his arrest.
The Dogcatcher, here named Elliot, appears in the 2019 remake of Lady and the Tramp. Unlike his animated counterpart, Elliot takes his job as a dogcatcher very seriously and considers the Tramp to be his arch-nemesis. Whenever he describes the dog to others in an effort to keep a lookout for him, he always mentions him as being vicious and having teeth like a shark, which always confuses them.
