(pronounced DAW-gehd)

Just like a canine companion will patiently persist in the pursuit of food or prey, someone who is dogged is stubbornly determined and tenaciously persevering in the pursuit of whatever lies in his or her crosshairs.

Example: Brad’s dogged determination to make associate within one year of joining the A&D firm created some uncomfortable tension within his specialty projects group.
