10 Famous TV Show Dogs

April 8, 2021

Fun fact; dogs are never the villain in any movie. If anything, they do something so incredibly endearing that we love them more for it. Or they simply just exist as their wonderful selves and make us fall in love with them! Long story short, here are 10 of the most famous tv show dogs you’ve probably heard about, and if you hadn’t previously, you would have now: 

  1. Marley from Marley & Me (2008)

The story of Marley is one that’s made it into print media. Marley was the super active 100-pound dog of John and Jennifer Grogan who acted like a puppy all his life and was featured in the movie, Marley and Me. 

  1. Old Yeller from Old Yeller (1957)

Old Yeller is a very familiar name and the star of the 1957 film, Old Yeller. The plot details a Labrador Retriever/Mastiff mix who saves his family and saves the day but tragically gets rabies in the process. 

  1. Chance and Shadow from Homeward Bound (1993)

A combo of Chance, a young pup, and Shadow, old and experienced, make up two out of the three pets who embark on a journey to find their owners who are vacationing. Their adventure takes them across open countryside and forests in this film. 

  1. Brian from Family Guy (1999)

One of the most eloquent and educated talking dogs you would find on TV. Brian from Family Guy is smarter than most of his family members and was even quite the player! No, this can’t be left out! 

  1. Beethoven from Beethoven (1992) 

For starters, this is not about the famous music composer. This is Beethoven the “St. Bernard dog” and in addition to the remarkable name, this dog-themed movie has enjoyed immense success since its making in 1992.  

  1. Buddy from Air Bud (1997)

Police dogs are a thing, but a basketball-player dog, now that’s a new one. This is the story of Buddy the Golden Retriever in the movie Air Bud. In the movie, he goes on to join a human team and play in a competition! Fun fact, his real-life name was Buddy too and his trainer, Kevin di Cicco, really did teach him basketball and how to dunk. 

  1. Jerry Lee from K-9 (1989)

Jerry Lee was a cool police dog who did just what he pleased and frustrated his handler, Michael Dooley, many times. He was supposed to help Michael in his pursuit of an international drug dealer, Ken Lyman, and by the end of the movie, he’d endeared himself to everyone. 

  1. Hachi from Hachi A Dog’s Tale (2009)

Inspired by a real story from Japan about an Akita Inu who always waited at the train station for his master’s arrival and continued every single day even after his master’s demise. 

  1. Rin Tin Tin from The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin (1954)

This series with a total of 164 episodes tells the story of an orphan boy Rusty and his German Shepherd Rin Tin Tin. With his trusted companion by his side, he traveled to carry out various military duties. 

  1. Snoopy from Snoopy Come Home (1972)

Snoopy was a well-known fictional character from the peanuts comic strip, and he could walk upright like a human. In fiction, Snoopy always wanted to be famous, and he got so famous in reality, that he was honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame!
