* If you think having a wolf as a pet would be awesome, you'd better be able to give it a few kilograms of (raw) meat, a large and SECURE area to live in, another canine companion, AND make sure you can handle an animal who will challenge your authority as soon as it grows up. And don't even try leaving your kids or anyone else's alone with it, which almost always meets a tragic end. In well-educated and able hands, a wolf might make a great companion -- but for most of people, i.e. a vast, '''vast''' majority of people, it's best to stick with the already tame wlf lineage refined through thousands of years of selecting breeding called ''dogs''.

* Used in ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama World Tour]]'' when local DeadpanSnarker Noah suddenly starts treating a Sasquatch like a dog, playing the 'invisible ball' game by miming playing catch, the Sasquatch immediately drops down onto four legs and starts panting happily like a dog, Noah then pretends to throw the imaginary ball off-scree to lure the Sasquatch away from his team. Somehow, it works, with Noah explaining that it always worked on his dog back home.

Added DiffLines:

* Guilmon (a fire-breathing, four foot dinosaur/dragon) in ''Anime/DigimonTamers'' acts just as friendly and curious as a young puppy, so much so that Takato's parents believed that he'd snuck home a real pet rather than a digital pet brought to life.

** ''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. This one is justified, though as actual animals don't exist in the setting.

* One of the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' movies, ''Anime/PokemonRangerAndTheTempleOfTheSea'', had a family own a Buizel [[EarlyBirdCameo even though the cast is still in Hoenn]]. The Buizel showed a particular liking to Max, and licked his face near the beginning. Again, it ''is'' a Pokemon, so...



* In ''WesternAnimation/TheLandBeforeTime'', Spike, the stegosaurus, definitely fits this tropes. He wags his tail when he's happy and shows affection to his friends by licking them.
** However, Spike isn't intended to be the equivalent of a dog--we're shown that he's just as intelligent as the other dinosaur characters, but simply doesn't prefer to speak. This is proven by the fact that when we see ''other'' stegosauruses in the sequels, they're perfectly articulate (one is even a MotorMouth).

* Played with in a famous cartoon in ''Magazine/{{Punch}}'' that showed a man sharing a railway carriage with his various pets, and arguing with the conductor about a rule that passengers had to pay extra if their dog was travelling with them. The caption was "[[FunetikAksent Cats is 'Dogs' and rabbits is 'Dogs' and so's parrats; but this here tortoise is a h-insect so there ain't no charge for it.]]"

** The anime does this too.

The Buizel showed a particular liking to Max, and licked his face near the beginning. Interestingly, no other Buizel seen in the show ever acts like this. In the Kalos arc, the Rhyhorn that Serena's family use in races also act like big, affectionate puppies.



* In the [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants SpongeBob]] universe, worms are the equivalent of dogs. They do things like barking and playing fetch.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/StargateInfinity'', Seattle Montoya temporarily adopts a small [[CuteKitten cat-like]] alien. However, it acts more like a dog than a cat-- it licks people's faces, plays fetch, and buries its favorite toys.

Dinosaurs are among most common animals to fall to this, as a) nobody really knows their ''actual'' mannerisms, and 2) works featuring them tend to be in prehistoric times, before the domestication of the dog, making it possible to pass them off as the [[HorseOfADifferentColor setting's equivalent of a dog]].
