Finding Doggy Grandma's pet dog falls asleep in the back of a neighbor's pickup truck and wakes up miles from home. Solving puzzles will reveal the path he should follow to find his way back home.

Finding Doggy is a tile removal puzzle game designed for younger players and is slower paced than others in the same vein. Drag the mouse over a grouping of same-type tiles to select and click to remove them. A map at the bottom left of each puzzle screen displays the location of the exit and the player's progress in reaching it. The level number, points so far and time left are displayed at the bottom. The objective is to have Doggy follow the brown path to a door before time runs out. He will automatically walk on that path after matches have been made to reveal and clear the way.

Animal friends offer assistance with powerful actions during each puzzle and are pictured at the top left of the screen. The first one at the beginning, for example, is a bird who can reshuffle everything. Their special abilities need to be "powered up" before they can be use by matching tiles. To help with removing larger bunches of tiles or objects blocking the path, bonus tiles appear randomly. A swirl with arrows, for instance, destroys tiles on the board in the direction of the arrows.

Story mode has 50 levels and an Endless mode can be unlocked after 15 general levels are solved. Bonus mini-game levels are jumbled picture puzzles that can be saved as desktop wallpapers after solving. Different players can have separate games by typing in their name at the start of a new game.
