7 Fictional Dogs I want to own

7 Fictional Dogs I want to own

3.) Dug (Up)



How many times have you wished you could understand your dog and talk to them? If internet memes are to believed there is a significant portion of the population that would stay home and only ever interact with them. Although I don’t know if Dug would be the greatest conversationalist. He’s also been made smarter to function as a servant dog which is nice. Other than that, he’s one of the most realistic dog characters ever. I’m aware even with a translator a dog wouldn’t be able to think in these terms. Still I feel this is the closest to what a dog WOULD think like. A close runner up and other good other example would be the dog from that “Dexter’s Laboratory” episode. Also a golden labrador retriever, but also so perfectly dog-like once given the power of speech.

2.) Sparky (Frankenweenie)


This is for both versions, but more so the recent remake. I’ve never seen an animated animal who felt so real in a movie. Say what you will about the film overall, but there’s no denying how much they capture that feeling of love you have for a family dog. Even after he’s a reanimated corpse he doesn’t lose any cute points even though he may be loosing body parts like a tail or something. But worry not this isn’t like Jeff Goldblum in “The Fly.” If that happens, you just have to stitch it back on and boom… simple fix. Really a low maintenance dog if you don’t mind having to charge him up over and over. We do it for our phones so why not a dog?

1.) Gromit (Wallace and Gromit)


If there was one dog I could own, this would be it. Gromit is completely loyal to his owner Wallace even when he clearly isn’t into the idea. Whether it’s window washing, mechanical trousers, flying to the moon to obtain some cheese, etc. It’s even like having a butler what with all the household chores he regularly does. Also much like Courage he’ll always be there to save you from were-rabbits, criminal Penguin geniuses or evil cyber dogs. I also think it’s great that he has his own hobbies like needlepoint because everyone needs their own “me” activity. Seriously the more I think I think about it the more I can’t think of any faults with this dog, give him another treat just for being a good boy. Plus he doesn’t bark which I think all of even the biggest dog lovers can agree that’s one of their few flaws. But still we hear nothing from Gromit. It’s almost like he doesn’t even have a mouth. Despite that you NEVER have any doubt what he’s thinking or feeling and that’s even more impressive when you consider all he has to convey all of that it basically just an upper brow. Now if you’ll excuse me, I feel hungry for some cheese and crackers for some reason.

What do you think? What fictional dogs do you think are the best?

About The Author


Eric grew up with a simple childhood. At age 11 a six fingered man murdered his father in front of his eyes, while his mother died defending him from an attack from a sharptooth, then an evil toon dropped a piano from 15 stories onto his brother's head and then on top of all of that while on the job he was brutally shot up and left for dead but was rebuilt as a robotic cop to get his revenge. ...Oooorr maybe he just watched a lot of movies growing up and got really into them. From a young age Eric realized learning things like science, math, people's names etc. took some real effort but could easily remember practically all the dialog/plot details from a random movie he watched on tv years ago. He knew from a young age that he wanted to make movies and never strayed from that. Going to college to get an education in film production and working on movie sets whenever it can be fit into his schedule. Get him into a room full of people he doesn't know and over time you may eventually get him to open up but just mention some movies and he'll talk for hours, never afraid to (respectfully) argue with fellow movie nerds. Now he puts that love and energy toward writing for

Bandit (Jonny Quest), Brain (Inspector Gadget), Krypto (Superman), and Lockjaw (Inhumans0 for my list. Eddie was a quality dog.
