|“||He's the greatest dog in the world.||”|
— Milo Murphy, "Family Vacation"
Diogee is a dog who is very loyal to his owner Milo Murphy; so much so that he gets out of the house just to reunite with Milo at random times of the day, usually during Milo's predicaments. Diogee will casually appear to save Milo and his friends from any situation, this is used as a running gag in many episodes. Milo usually tells him to go home, and sometimes says "He's not supposed to be..." which can be said in any place where Milo usually is. He always knows the way home and the way to Milo. He doesn't always appear to save Milo, he sometimes appears just to stay with him, even though this means he doesn't obey his owner.
He likes the film The Dog Door Bone Files. He is very friendly like most well-socialized dogs.
Diogee has a lot of stamina. He was able to run to Milo's location and had no signs of exhaustion.
Diogee also appears to be smarter than regular dogs. He was able to read a map with directions to get to an airport, use public transportation, ride an airplane and use a parachute to get to Milo, apparently without humans thinking his activities odd or even interesting.
Diogee has cream-colored fur with small brown spots right over his mouth and a large, round, brown nose, floppy ears, and two brown "stains" over his back.
He has been with the Murphy family since Milo was a toddler. When Sara tried to teach Milo how to tie his shoes, Diogee began playing with the laces and inadvertently got tangled up with Milo when the attempt to tie his shoes failed.
In Going the Extra Milo, he ran up to Milo and Zack when they were running on a runway concrete drainage pipe. When they were attacked by a wolf with its head stuck in a beehive, he knocked off the wolf into the river.
In Rooting for the Enemy, he attempted to attend a football game wearing a foam finger on both his head and tail but was told to go home by Milo. He also shows up at the hospital in this fashion.
In The Doctor Zone Files, he attended a showing of The Dog Door Bone Files. His view of the movie was blocked by a poodle.
In Murphy's Lard, he makes a small cameo in the doughnut ride where Milo was screaming about finger traps when swimming.
In Secrets and Pies, he is launched out of the chimney after Milo's macaroni and cheese explodes and shakes cheese off of himself like water on top of the dump truck. He is found by Veronica and taken home. He sits on the pizza.
In We're Going to the Zoo, he spends time in Melissa's inflatable pool.
In The Little Engine That Couldn't, he hitches a ride in Denise the fire truck.
In Perchance to Sleepwalk, Diogee follows Milo and his friends to their campsite, he is spotted and heads home.
In Some Like it Yacht, Diogee finds a way to warn Milo of a semi-centennial high tide.
In Backward to School Night, he steals then accidentally breaks the age regressor ray.
In The Race, he carries a medal to Milo at the end of the race.
In The Island of Lost Dakotas, Milo has a flashback, in which a young Diogee watches him try to tie his shoes.
In Love Toboggan, he removes the boiler from the toboggan and crashes it into the Murphy's dining room.
In Fungus Among Us, Milo asks Diogee to stay with him instead of sending him home.
In The Phineas and Ferb Effect, Diogee is with Milo, Orton, Cavendish, and Dakota when they meet Doofenshmirtz, who attempts to make conversation with him. Diogee then leaves with Milo and Perry to help retrieve a clock from his house and later reappears alongside Perry to help fight against the Pistachions.
In Snow Way Out, he was sent home by Milo near the beginning of the episode but later showed up on a ship, where he helped them figure out an escape.
In Agee Ientee Diogee, it is revealed that Diogee was once accidentally sent on an O.W.C.A. mission against Doofenshmirtz, and had successfully thwarted him.
In Game Night, Diogee indicated that he wanted to join them in playing their board game and then participated all the way through. According to Dakota, Diogee won but cheated. Diogee responds to the accusation by growling.
In Cake 'Splosion!, Diogee causes Milo and Amanda to fall during the last seconds of the contest. Milo assures him it wasn't his fault.
- Main article: Milo and Diogee's Relationship
Diogee is Milo's pet dog. Diogee leaves the house to find Milo on a regular basis and shows occasional disappointment when being sent home. He's constantly doing his best to help Milo out of trouble, often following him on risky adventures and appearing out of nowhere to save him in the nick of time.
Diogee is close to Milo's best friends. They took care of him when the Murphy's went on vacation, and he guarded the eggs for them while they worked on their science project. When Zack and Melissa were being followed by Agents Brick and Savannah, he helped slow them down so that the duo could escape.
During the Pistachion invasion, Diogee began working with Perry immediately. He ran away with the clock Perry had entrusted to him so that the platypus could fend off the Pistachions, and later the two of them worked together during the battle, protecting their owners and fighting against the Pistachion army.

- His name's pronunciation is phonetically based off of the spelling of the word "dog".
- Dee Bradley Baker, who provides sound effects for Diogee, also did vocal effects on Phineas and Ferb, most notably performing the part of Perry the Platypus/Agent P.
- His role in the show also mirrors Perry's a bit. Perry is a secret agent with human-level thinking, while Diogee is a normal pet with normal dog behavior. While Perry usually hid from Phineas and Ferb when fighting against Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Diogee usually joins Milo to help him out of his difficulties.
- In Missing Milo, Diogee's full name is revealed to be "Diogee Ex Machina Murphy".
- Coincidentally, the first three letters of his name "Dio" (as in "D-i-o-g-e-e") are forming an Italian word and came from the Latin "deus".
- Diogee's middle name, Ex Machina, maybe a play on the term Deus Ex Machina as he often appears randomly at just the right time to solve an otherwise unsolvable problem. In this case he is clearly Dog Ex Machina.
- Milo and Sara call him "the best dog in the world", which is printed on his food bowl in Chinese.
- Diogee is one quarter llama dog (mentioned in The Llama Incident)
- He can understand some commands in Spanish due to attending one of Milo's Spanish classes.
