Not every great anime character is human - just look at these wonderful dogs. These canine characters add depth to their worlds and show the animal-loving (or hating) side of their human companions. Along with being great foils for the characters, they're just plain cute.
The best anime dogs come in many varieties. They can be house pets with big personalities and deep bonds with their owners, like Makkachin from Yuri!!! on ICE. Or perhaps they have a mind of their own, like Pakkun from Naruto.
Whether you prefer them on the realistic or fantastical side, you can't deny anime is chock-full of amazing canines.
