Oh, the guy was tall, dark-haired with a little graying around the edges. He was dressed all in black leather, like that's a good idea in the desert, and carried a shotgun.— Phil about Dogmeat's former owner

Phil is a citizen of Junktown in 2161.


A dog, Dogmeat, has taken up residence in front of his house since his previous owner's death, which apparently occurred only days before the Vault Dweller's arrival.
