This is DOOGY DOG he's an animatronic hand puppet and one of Hands Up Puppets puppet television presenter characters.
Doogy Dog was created originally as a very realistic animatronic Ventriloquist style puppet Dog for Marcus to use as a Joke telling heckling 'funny man' in his Cod Vent Television double Act. see Doogy & Staines on the Showreel Page here
Marcus appears dressed as a paper seller with Doogy Dog talking away from his shoulder Bag.
Doogy also now appears as a 'real Dog' helper in the BBC's 'Smarteenies' Art series currently on CBeebies. Where he doesn't speak at all!

Review 2004 (culture.gov) The top performing programmes based on average share demonstrate the variety of the offering and the way in which CBeebies continues to push the boundaries for pre-school children. The channel premiered the first pre-school drama, Balamory, which had an 8% share and received critical acclaim. Tikkabilla revived the much loved magazine format of Play School, with every show being a journey of discovery and learning, receiving a 7% share. Smarteenies, a “make and do” art show, became the number one performing programme on CBeebies with 9% share (in digital homes containing children over 4 years old). Fimbles, (7% share) the third CBeebies landmark show.

Doogy in the BBC's Smarteenies is performed conventionally as a straightforward animatronic puppet. Although he does not speak in the series he still works well as a comedic Pet assistant.
