For this poll we've created a list of the greatest dogs of all time, featuring dogs you know from movies, television, video games and more. Of course your favorite cartoon dogs are included, but this list doesn't only feature animated characters that can talk. If your favorite fictional dog is missing, don't be salty- just add it to the list so that other people can vote for for it too!

Characters include everything from Brian Griffin to Scrappy-Doo. Who is the number one dog that people just can't get enough of? Scroll down and find out who the masses voted for.
