Dogman, also known as the Michigan Dogman, is a cryptid that is said to inhabit the state of Michigan in the United States. The legend of Dogman has been around for centuries, with sightings of this creature dating back to the 1800s.
So, what exactly is Dogman?
Well, that's where things get a bit hairy. Literally. Dogman is said to be a half-human, half-dog creature that stands upright on two legs and walks like a man. He is said to be very tall, with some reports claiming he can reach up to 7 feet in height, and he is covered in thick, shaggy fur that is often brown or black in color. He also has large teeth and glowing eyes, which makes him all the more terrifying.
While there have been many reports of sightings of this cryptid over the years, there has yet to be any concrete evidence that such a creature actually exists. However, that doesn't mean that people aren't still searching for him. In fact, there are even a few dedicated websites and Facebook groups devoted to tracking down this elusive beast.
So if you're ever in Michigan and you see a large, furry creature walking on two legs, beware...you may have just spotted the Dogman!
The Origins of Dogman
The legend of Dogman is thought to date back to Native American folklore. One of the most popular stories about Dogman comes from the Ojibwe people, who believe that he was once a human man who was cursed by an evil spirit. This curse transformed him into a half-human, half-dog creature that roams the forests of Michigan to this day.
Other stories claim that Dogman is actually an alien creature or even a werewolf. There are even those who believe that he is a product of genetic experimentation gone wrong. No matter his origins, one thing is for sure...Dogman is one scary cryptid!
Sightings of Dogman
There have been many reports of sightings of Dogman over the years, with most of them coming from the state of Michigan. In fact, one of the most famous sightings occurred in 1887 when two lumberjacks claimed to have seen the creature near Wexford County.
Since then, there have been dozens of other reported sightings of Dogman across Michigan. People have claimed to see him in broad daylight and even captured him on video (although these videos have never been authenticated).
So if you're ever out hiking or camping in Michigan and you see something strange in the woods...it might just be Dogman!
have also been linked to Dogman, with some believing that the two are one and the same. However, there is no solid evidence to support this theory.
A paranormal group visited Cannock Chase in 1975 and saw a snarling beast that they believe was a werewolf.
One thing is for certain though: people will continue to search for proof of this cryptid's existence and sightings will surely continue. Until then, keep your eyes peeled during your outdoor
The Debate Over Dogman
While there have been many reported sightings of Dogman over the years, skeptics argue that he is nothing more than a legend or a hoax. They claim that sightings can easily be explained as misidentifications of other animals, such as wolves or bears.
On the other hand, believers argue that there have been too many consistent sightings for it to all be a hoax. They point to the Native American folklore and historical accounts as evidence that Dogman could actually exist.
Dogman Pop Culture
The legend of Dogman has also made its way into popular culture. One of the most popular podcasts, "Dogman Encounters Radio" is dedicated to sharing first-hand accounts and theories about this cryptid. And in 2015, a film called "The Beast of Bray Road" was released, which revolves around a Dogman-like creature.
This cryptid has been reported countless times over the years but there has yet to be any concrete evidence that he actually exists. Nevertheless, people still believe he's out there...hiding in the forests and waiting to pounce on unsuspecting victims! So if you're ever in Michigan and you see something strange lurking in the woods...beware...you may have just spotted Dogman!

I love my Mothman plushy! He’s so cute and fuzzy. The wings are the best part, so soft! The only problem is keeping them away from my pups! (And the catastrophic bad omen of having him nearby) 🤣
This Fresno Nightcrawler Stuffed Cryptid is the perfect companion for camping trips. It is cozy, charming, and adventurous. It looks like it belongs in the woods and blends in with nature. I took a photo of it on a tree and it looked amazing. It is a great gift for anyone who loves camping and cryptids. I adore it and recommend it.

I always loved cryptids growing up seeing YouTube videos and tv shows talking about them always fascinated me and then years later I stubbled to this site from Instagram and fell further in love with the merch! The plushies really have me in a chokehold I currently own the Fresno nightcrawler and plan on buying them all! Even plan on buy them as presents for family members! So damn adorable!
Love how furry and fluffy the stuffed cryptids are.
these are so well made, you can feel the quality as soon as you open the package. the eyes are beaded on very securely and despite how fluffy they look, they still have minimal shedding which is super convenient. obviously adorable, but also extremely worth the price. don’t hesitate to buy!
