Dogmen are a type of NMC encountered in the N.Y.P.D. Police Station. They are presumably mutated police dogs, and Mitochondria Eve has given them an anthropomorphic form.
Resembling werewolves, they often attack in pairs and have an area-effect energy blast that deals low damage but halves your Defense, making them very dangerous. They will crouch slightly before performing this attack, however the window of opportunity to dodge is somewhat small. They will occasionally perform a close-range swipe that can do heavy damage, especially if your Defense has already been halved, however as long as you stay moving you might be able to dodge it. Due to Dogmens' high HP heavy weaponry is advised.
On the third level of the NYPD you will encounter a mini boss version of the Dogman killing a police officer. This is also the same Dogman that killed Torres Owens. It has the same strengths and weaknesses as the regular Dogmen but its shockwave attack effect is different. Instead of lowering the defense of Aya it will instead cut her HP in half.
