Gala the Hound[1] is a character that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. She is an anthropomorphic dog and apple farmer[1] who resides in Spiral Hill Village.

Concept and creation

Gala was named after the Gala apple, Evan Stanley's favorite type of apple.[1]


Gala is an anthropomorphic dog with light blue fur, green eyes, and a peach-skinned muzzle with a sharp black nose. She also has fuzzy droopy ears and a medium-long fuzzy tail. For attire, she wears a pale yellow straw hat with a green band, a green short-sleeved shirt, blue overalls with light blue patches on the knees and yellow buttons, yellow fingerless work gloves, and brown shoes.


Tangle & Whisper

While at work in Spiral Hill Village, Gala saw someone who appeared to be Sonic the Hedgehog run through the streets. This character proceeded to jump onto and setting off from Gala's head as he was escaping from Whisper the Wolf, leaving Gala to pick up the apples she dropped.[2]
