29 Most Famous Dogs We Love

It doesn't matter if a dog is real, fictional, live action, or animated. They're still loyal, lovable, and the best friend anyone could ask for. Here are the most famous dogs, some of which you might remember from your own childhood.

29. Manny the Frenchie

Manny, a very adorable French Bulldog, rose to fame on Instagram and even went on tour.

28. Jiff

Jiff the Pomeranian is an actor and model. He also makes more money than you. And me.

27. Tuna

Tuna the cheweenie, or tunameltsmyheart on Instagram, has the most adorable underbite I've ever seen.

26. Sinbad

Sinbad was collectively owned by the crew of the U.S.S. Campbell, and was listed as a non-commissioned officer. He was even at sea during World War II!

25. Boo

Boo the Pomeranian has been called "The cutest dog in the world." I think he'd also qualify for the title of "World's cutest cotton ball."

24. Marny

Marnie the Shih Tzu was rescued from the streets with a mouth full of decaying teeth, which then had to be removed. That's why she has such a lovable lopsided expression, and why her tongue normally hangs out of her mouth.

23. Mishka the Talking Husky

Huskies are a very talkative breed, but Mishka is exceptionally so. Go watch her videos. You won't regret it.

22. Hachiko

I nestled this one into the middle of this rank because it's too sad to begin or end on. Hachiko is the real life inspiration for the infamous Jurassic Bark episode of Futurama that will forever remain unwatched on our Netflix feed. Yes, a dog really did wait for its master to come back every day until it died. Multiple times, in fact. The Italian golden retriever Fido waited for his master, who had been killed in World War II, for 14 years until he died.

21. Blue

Blue's Clues is one of the most exceptional educational shows around for children. Many youngsters learned about science and discovery from her long before they were even preschool aged.

20. Jake the Dog

We'll all be forever grateful to Jake for teaching us how to make bacon pancakes, something we never knew we'd always wanted in our lives until he revealed to us the glory.

19. Eddie

This Jack Russell Terrier was the favorite character of Frasier's viewers, regardless of how great the other characters were.

18. Santa's Little Helper

Santa's Little Helper is the living embodiment of every Greyhound that ever lived. Just ask anyone who's owned one.

17. Brian Griffin

Seth McFarlane made the entire Internet so furious after killed off this sarcastic alcoholic pooch that the writers of Family Guy ended up bringing him back from the dead--if they hadn't been planning that all along, that is. If you ask me, Brian Griffin was an inside job.

16. Checkers

The Checkers speech just might be the most famous presidential speech of all time. Am I still the only person who would totally vote for that dog?

15. Comet and Airbud

When I was little I had no idea that Comet and Buddy were the same dog, but I would have been thrilled to no end if I did.

14. Otis

This adorable pug won hearts in America, but especially in Japan, where the Japanese/American/British film Milo and Otis was the third highest grossing film of all time.

13. Hooch

This Dogue de Bordeaux was a riot, ruining Tom Hank's character's ideal clean habitat in the way only a Dogue de Bordeaux can.

12. Snoopy

Snoopy is what most people think of when they think of the Peanuts comic strips, even though he never spoke a word himself.

11. Balto

The brave Siberian Husky who rose to the occasion during a deadly Alaskan diphtheria outbreak has been immortalized in the Museum of Natural History, as well as in his own cartoon.

10. Toto

This spunky Cain Terrier has been to Oz and back and lived to tell the tale.

9. Pluto

Man's best friend can also be Mouse's best friend, as proven by Walt Disney's Pluto.

8. Wishbone

Wishbone introduced so many children to classical literature in a way they could understand. My favorite part was always how no one ever noticed he was a dog.

7. Laika

Laika was the first dog sent into space. Without her sacrifice, space travel might not have been near as advanced as it is today.

6. Shadow and Chance from Homeward Bound

There was a period in my childhood when I watched this movie every day. Shadow the Golden Retriever and Chance the lovable mutt meant just as much to their fictional family as our pets mean to us.

5. Old Yeller

I don't blame Pheobe's mom from Friends for not telling her how the film Old Yeller actually ended. I probably won't even let my kids watch it, seeing as I'm too much of a wuss to have even watched it myself.

4. Scooby Doo

The Scooby Doo franchise is one of the longest running in entertainment history, and for good reason. While this lovable Great Dane may not be much of a hero all the time, he's managed to capture the hearts of both children and parents.

3. Rin Tin Tin

Rin Tin Tin was rescued from a battlefield during World War I and trained for the movies. He cemented the image of the German Shepherd as a loyal family pet for American audiences.

2. Beethoven

The movie Beethoven is responsible for a generation of kids who begged their parents for a St. Bernard--and for people who think of the dog before the composer when they hear the name, "Beethoven."

1. Lassie

Everybody knows Lassie. This loyal collie is the name that comes to mind whenever someone mentions hero canines, and the phrase, "Timmy is trapped in a well" went mainstream long ago.
