Red Dog from the G.I. Joe: The Movie.

Red Dog was a member of The Renegades, a team that Sgt. Slaughter commanded. Little background is given on him, except that he was booted out of pro-football for unnecessary roughness.

  • Like his fellow Renegade Taurus, Red Dog is depicted in the G.I. Joe Movie as fighting with a melee weapon in addition to a firearm, in this case some sort of wooden sports tool. The figure, however, did not come with this item.
  • Red Dog's last name comes from Cape Taputapu, on the main island of Samoa.
