Devil Dog Dawson is a 1921 silent film American western directed by Karl R. Coolidge and starring Jack Hoxie, Helene Rosson and Evelyn Selbie. It was produced by Unity Photoplays and released on the states-rights market by Arrow Film Corp.

The film is considered lost. The only surviving footage from this film - 38 seconds worth - was found in a mislabeled tin by a collector in Ohio. The title marked on the tin was Dangerous Hour - Eddie Polo. The canister and its contents were the subject of an investigation in a 2006 episode of the PBS series History Detectives. The film segment was preserved and restored by the Library of Congress.

Many remaining scenes from this film were thought to have been cut at the time because they depicted alcohol consumption, which was illegal at the time.
