List Rules Vote for your favorite comic book and cartoon dogs.

Just like in real life, cartoon dogs are often Man’s best friend. In animation, they can be used as comedic sidekick characters, heroes, villains, and everything in between. You’ll also sometimes see cartoon dogs partnered with cartoon mouse characters and cartoon cats for some group hijinks. So among all the dogs in cartoons and comic books, which ones are the greatest of all time? See what people voted as their favorite dog characters below.

Some of the top choices include classic dog characters such as Pluto, Snoopy, and Scooby-Doo as they’ve been around for decades and continue to entertain audiences to this day. Cartoon pups have been in some of the most emotional scenes in TV shows, such as Seymour waiting for Fry to show up in the cartoon Futurama. Nearly all dog lovers will shed a tear at that emotional cartoon scene.

Other famous cartoon dogs include Brian Griffin, Droopy, and Clifford the Big Red Dog. If you love dog characters, then be sure to vote for your favorite dogs from cartoons and comics. Don’t see a particular famous dog listed? Add it to the listing so that others may vote for it. For the purpose of this list, wolves, coyotes, and foxes also apply. Basically any cartoon canines.
