* There are the aptly-named Houndeyes from ''VideoGame/HalfLife1'', which look like the back half of a dog with a zillion eyes planted in the torso stump. Despite only having the two legs, they run like an eager puppy, and their call sounds a little like barking simulated by a really cheap synthesizer. In fact, a Houndeye was originally supposed to be an animal companion for the player, following you around for most of the game. This was scrapped when play testers kept shooting the thing anyway, probably because of how alien and hideous the thing is.

* Varren from ''Franchise/MassEffect'' are large four legged creatures that resemble a creature half dog half fish, they bark bite and can be tamed. They are generally used as guard/attack dogs and their resemblance to dogs are brought up with the in-universe colloquialism of "Fishdogs" as a knickname for them.

** Although all the dinosaurs in ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'' ([[CarnivoreConfusion the herbivores and cute ones, anyway]]) are {{Talking Animal}}s, there is an ankylosaur who can only bark, pant, and wag its tail. The AlternateCharacterInterpretation for some fans is that Url is mentally challenged.



** In ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'', the alternate-reality '''human''' child behaves rather like a puppy.

** In ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2'', Bullseye the horse acts much more like a dog, wagging his tail, licking people, coming when called, and whimpering like a dog in the third movie. Which is strange, because the character that is actually a dog, Slinky, does NOT act like this, and Buster, who is a non-toy dog, does. So aside from not being able to tell who is what from appearance alone they play this trope straight, toys are either humans or dogs.
*** The WesternAnimation/ToyStory short ''Toy Story of Terror'' has Mr. Jones, an iguana that behaves like a dog. He wags his tail, pants, fetches, and eats out of a dog bowl with his name on it like a dog.
** ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' has farm and construction equipment acting like cattle, miniature VW Beetles like insects, miniature aircraft as birds, toy cars as dogs/cats/rodents, and model trains as snakes.

*** Almost all felines, from the largest tiger to the smallest kitten, kill their prey very quickly by way of a spine snapping bite to the back of the neck. When a cat bows it is exposing the back of its neck and telling you (or another cat) that it's not hostile, doesn't think you (or another cat) are a threat, and is not looking for a fight. It's very similar to how most friendly human greetings revolve around baring our necks, one of our most vulnerable spots.

* In the widely-panned ''SonicUnderground'', Knuckles had a pet dinosaur called Chomps who acted exactly in this manner, unless his master was using him to threaten thieves off the island.

* ''ShanghaiNoon'' featured a horse who knew "sit" and probably a few other commands. Played for laughs, as it's a partial parody of the Improbably Well-Trained Horse common to a lot of Westerns.

* In the {{MightyMax}} episode "Zygote's Rhythm" when Max's pet iguana Thor gets hit by an evolution ray he becomes a dinosaur and his behavior becomes similar to that of a dog such as licking Max with affection, panting, wagging his tail, and being lured with treats.
