In the first film, the dogcatcher's name is Bill, and he first appears putting up a Warning sign stating all unlicensed dogs will be impounded. While he has also captured Peg and Bull, but Tramp sets them free. Later he captures Lady. Finally, Aunt Sarah called him to get Tramp and take him away. In the end, he is stopped by Jock and Trusty.
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. In the end, he was defeated by Angel.
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.
