Jodie is a kind house dog and a member of the Justice.
Seeing Mel rummaging through garbage for food, Jodie invites him into her yard and offers him the food in her dish (a thing she often does for stray dogs). She was later seem with her owners driving by when some fugitives broke in and kidnapped her owners. She tries to protect them but gets hit nearly unconscious. Jodie tells Mel to call the Justice to help.
Near the end of the story, Jodie's owners were saved and it's found out that she's taking medical attention and will pull through.
