Dougal was a Demiguise that accompanied Newton Scamander as he researched magizoology and visited New York in 1926.

He was one of the creatures that escaped Newton Scamander's suitcase and had to be recaptured after causing a disturbance in the Ginzberg Delaunay department store.[1]

Dougal seemed to be rather boisterous, trying to open Newt's suitcase from the inside every so often. However, he also seemed to be aware of other animals and their care, 'babysitting' the escaped Occamy in the attic of the department store in Newt's absence.

Behind the scenes

  • His name is most likely a reference to the dog Dougal from the British children's show The Magic Roundabout, who also has long hair.
