Harry Dobbing in a gunfight

Harry Dobbing is a minor character and a bounty target featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Dobbing is a member of the Bollard Twins gang. He is wanted for assault and can be captured or killed, depending on the player's choice.


During the mission "Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit", he is seen holding a woman hostage at Ridgewood Farm.

Harry can most often be found around Thieves' Landing, frequently loitering inside the saloon and around the brothel. He can also be encountered at the Pike's Basin gang hideouts, but he will be hostile unless the player is wearing the Bollard Twins Outfit.

Harry also participates in holding the player up in the random encounter "Beauty and the Wagon". He is the leader of the muggers who tells the player to give up his money or face the consequences. The player can either kill him or let him take the money and avoid a gunfight.

Harry, along with Pinky Wilson and Charlie Mash can be found hanging a person in the "Hanging" random encounter .

  • His character model is available in the Outfitter under the name Shep Thomas.
  • Harry is one of two characters to wear an eye-patch in Red Dead Redemption, the other being Captain Espinoza however Marston can also wear one with the Deadly Assassin Outfit.
  • Despite being a member of the Bollard Twins Gang, he appears during the mission "The Assault on Fort Mercer" along with members of the Williamson Gang.
  • If looked at closely, an eye is visible on his eyepatch.
  • It is possible to spare his life in "Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit", as when he holds the girl hostage he can be shot in the leg non-fatally. If the player has unlocked the lasso at this point, he can be hogtied with some difficulty.
  • In the beginning of "On Shaky's Ground", Harry can be seen exiting a saloon completely under the influence of alcohol. He may stammer away, stand drunkenly, or just fall over and get back up repeatedly.
  • Harry will refer to the player as "prairie chicken" in battle, when threatened and when insulted, though what "prairie chicken" means to Harry is unclear.
