Installation of Dogz on a PowerPC Mac was done on a Power Macintosh 6100/66 running Mac OS 7.6.1 and found no issues. Further testing of the Dogz program was done on that same Macintosh Centris 650 running Mac OS 7.5.3 and I also didn't encounter any issues whatsoever.

Dogz was tested on a Macintosh Centris 650 running SSW 7.1 and on a Macintosh PowerBook 180 running SSW 7.5, no issued found on both systems. Although they strongly recommend a 68040 or PowerPC processor and a display of 256 colours, some experimenting is done on the PowerBook 180 and the unofficial minimum requirements call for a 33MHz 68030 with FPU and a display of 16-bit grayscale, which is what you will need, although the dog animations are a bit slow. (which the machine I tested, the PowerBook 180, is supported by me for this game.) One final note: Two screenshots show that Dogz can run on Mac OS 8, but the system requirements just below the download link call for Mac OS 7. If somebody can confirm that the game is compatible with Mac OS 8 and (probably) Mac OS 9 on real hardware, go right ahead!
