Denji owns a dog (who is also a demon) named Pochita who has chainsaws and uses them for his work.

This is explained as humans can make contracts with demons. After returning home from a job, Denji is summoned by a yakuza to infiltrate a building and assassinate another demon. However, the plan was a trap to kill him as part of a yakuza contract with the demon and give them more power. But Pochita comes to Denji's aid and bonds with him, becoming half human half demon and acquiring Pochita's chainsaws.
