He’s Dorothy Gale’s terrier in the Oz series by L. Frank Baum.

In the 1939 film adaptation, The Wizard of Oz, he was played by a

female brindle terrier named Terry and was paid even more than other

human actors at $125 per week. Due to Toto’s popularity, there were a

couple of apocryphal Oz books created based on the dog; Toto in Oz

(1986) and Toto of Oz (2006). Moreover, an autobiography was also

penned by Willard Carroll entitled, “I, Toto” (2001).




Though slightly unintelligent, Garfield’s canine best friend, and

sometimes victim, was a kind and playful beagle who loved to slobber

Garfield with his sloppy tongue. Oddie did not have a speaking role in the

Garfield series since his role was that of a pet dog. However, there were

certain instances where Oddie had a quick chance to “speak”.




Mickey Mouse’s mustard coloured pet is one of the perkiest and

most upbeat members among the Disney animated characters.

He’s the only one of the “Sensational Six”, the biggest stars in the

Disney universe, who does not dress up like a human and acts

like a real dog.




Brian Griffin looks like a dog but rarely acts like one and that makes

him all the more endearing in the modern animated television series

Family Guy. With his nonchalance and human like traits, he’s even more

rational than the entire Griffin family who considers him a

house pet and close friend.




Scooby Doo, where are you? This is perhaps the most popular

tagline in the entire history of the television series which is named

after the famous wacky Great Dane. With his unique raspy but comical

voice, Scooby Doo won the hearts of many via his spooked antics and

his irrational fear of ghosts.




As the nanny of Wendy, John and Michael in the Peter Pan series,

this St. Bernard does a wonderful job in caring for the children

even if the master of the house is a bit embarrassed to have

employed a dog as the nurse.




Blue, the dog from the hit children series “Blue’s Clues” stole the

hearts of all children through her engaging and interactive show which

has been described as “one of the most successful, critically acclaimed,

and ground-breaking preschool television series of all time.” With 9

Emmy award nominations and 10 years of fun, Blue became a

household name among pre-schoolers and young audiences

around the globe.




The famous animated romance between the American Cocker Spaniel

named Lady and the stray mutt called the Tramp touched the hearts of

canine lovers the world over in 1955 and was the first film released in,

at that time, the New Cinemascope widescreen film process. It’s a typical

love story of an upper middle class family pet and a street dwelling mutt

whose attraction for each other was the only thing they had in common.




101 Dalmatians is one of Disney’s most loved films. Based on the 1956

novel by Dodie Smith entitled “The Hundred and One Dalmatians”, the

animated smash hit enamoured millions to the Dalmatian breed of dogs.

Consequently, Disney worked with the American Kennel Club in order to

place information within the DVDs that advice against impulse

breed buying.
