Chris Bradford is a martial arts master, and a world-famous celebrity. A comment of Xever's, ("Rich Boy"), alludes that Bradford came from a wealthy background. Michelangelo attempts to make friends with him using social networking. Little does he know that Bradford is a member of the Foot Clan and is The Shredder's star pupil. He also served as the Shredder's second in command. Bradford, in an attempt to win Mikey's trust, teaches him his secret technique, which Mikey, in turn, teaches to his brothers. Splinter notices this move as being a signature move of The Shredder's.
Mikey returns and he is trapped by Bradford. The Turtles come to rescue Mikey, and then they let Bradford follow them into the Sewer, where they ambush Bradford and his rival/partner, Xever. When they return to the lair, Michelangelo ceremoniously un-friends Bradford from the website.
He later returns in the episode Never Say Xever in the Battle Royale where he holds off Donnie and Mikey. When Xever kidnaps Mr. Murakami and threatens to throw him over a building, the turtles lock Bradford in a trash can and threaten to throw him over the building. Xever is unaffected, saying "he's not my friend" and seeming enthusiastic about it. When Bradford escapes, he asks Xever how he was so sure that they were bluffing, he told him that he wasn't. He teams up with Xever to take down the Turtles. While Xever shows off his success, and mocks him for being locked up, a purple dragon gives Leo his sword back and allows him to destroy a nearby water tower, which flushed them and the Purple Dragon's off the roof. Shredder did not take the news of this lightly and planned to take on the Turtles himself.
In The Gauntlet, Bradford and Xever go after the Turtles again. Bradford ends up mutating into Dogpound (part of the mutation was contributed when he was bitten by Shredder's pet Akita Inu Hachiko) when he stabs open the container of mutagen to get away from the turtles. Xever mutates into Fishface at this time.
In Panic in the Sewers, the Turtles encounter the mutant Bradford during a spying mission. He overwhelms them, forcing them to retreat. Mikey names him "Dogpound" after this, and all the Turtles call him that from then on. Later, Dogpound leads the Foot's scheme to steal a tanker of acid that reacts violently with water, planning to destroy the sewers with it. After a protracted battle, Mikey uses a water balloon to ignite the leaking acid, blasting Dogpound away. Dogpound reports this failure to the Shredder, who slices off one of his shoulder spikes as punishment.
In Mousers Attack!, Dogpound finds his mutant form useful in extorting the Purple Dragons and taunts the mutant Xever about his useless fish body. Shredder interrupts and warns Dogpound that their primary goal is to find information on Splinter and the Turtles. Later, Fong of the Purple Dragons comes to Dogpound in an old futon factory with cell phone stolen from a friend of the Turtles. Dogpound wants to use the phone to find out where Splinter is, but Fong is unable to unlock the phone. However, when Tsoi and Sid bring Baxter Stockman to him, he forces the inventor to hack into the phone for him. Stockman almost succeeds but the Turtles interfere, bringing an army of Mousers with them. During the fight, Dogpound and Stockman are doused with a tracking chemical that makes them the Mousers' next target. Dogpound tries to escape with Stockman and the phone, but it is broken by a Turtle's throwing knife. He returns to Shredder with Stockman in tow. Shredder is angry with Stockman for his interference, but lets him live because he could be of use.
In The Alien Agenda, the only time Dogpound is seen is when he's laughing so hard at Xever since the robotic legs Baxter Stockman created for Xever isn't working and creates problems for Xever, due to the fact that Dogpound doesn't like Xever that much. Then one day Baxter Stockman steals Kraang parts and uses them to Make robotic legs for Xever he tries to destroy the Turtles once more but they escaped
