Uchi dose ka?

In episode 5 of Dog Days 2, Nanami is wandering around a town at night trying to be bait. To that end, she's in disguise and she's wearing a veil, and she is affecting a strange accent I can't place. Obviously she's trying to sound like someone who's rich, so as to make herself seem like a better target for robbery, but...

...but the main think I pick out is that she's pronouncing the copula as "dose" instead of as "dess" or "desu". I don't recall ever running into that before, affected or natural. What is it?

UPDATE: By the way, I ordered the first Japanese BD of Dog Days 2. It should be delivered in about 2 weeks.
