The Skeleton Dog[1] is a creature that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a race of canine Animals used for raising Chao.

Overview

In the gameplay of Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Skeleton Dogs can alter the stats and appearance of a Chao. These animals are mostly either found inside the third Chao Container opened in an Action Stage, or hiding somewhere difficult in the Action Stages. The only exception is Pumpkin Hill, where they are either found inside the second Chao Container opened there, or hiding somewhere less complicated, usually inside Cages or Pipes. When the Skeleton Dogs roam free, the player must touch them to pick them up. They are found in the following Action Stages:

Hero Story Dark Story
Action
Stage
Pumpkin Hill
Pyramid Cave
Death Chamber
Sand Ocean
Lost Colony

Upon entering a Chao Garden with a Skeleton Dog, it will leave the playable character and run around the garden. Should the player give a Skeleton Dog to a Chao, the Chao will embrace it, changing its appearance and raising its stats according to the Skeleton Dog's. The Skeleton Dog will then disappear shortly after.
