When Will came home after running away from a terrifying creature, the dog greeted him ecstatically. When a tall figure appeared behind the front door, the dog barked at it, indicating it saw it as a threat.
When Chief Hopper was searching the Byers' house for clues, his attention was drawn to the dog barking at the shed. Hopper asked if this behavior was normal, but Joyce dismissed it as hunger.
The dog later watched as Joyce hung Christmas lights around the house in order to communicate with Will. It also visited Castle Byers at some point.
On Christmas Eve, the dog snatched and ate some raw meat off the counter while the Byers weren't looking.
- While the dog is currently unnamed in the show, in the pilot script, its name was Chester.
- David Harbour has stated that the dog was one of the worst "actors" to work with, even making him storm off set on one occasion.
