* In ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' the title character had a pet pig named Abner who behaved more like a dog. In one episode when Abner gets
lost though, Ernie questioned this trope, saying that "Pigs aren't dogs" doubting Abner can find his way back the same way a dog can.

** ''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.

** ''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.

* A lot of old Chinese buildings (temples, palaces, and government offices, as well as the homes of the wealthy) had guardian statues referred to in Chinese as ''shi'', which translates as "lion". An older Western term for them is "foo dogs" or "fu dogs" and the Japanese, who were introduced to them through Korea, called them "Korean dogs". To the extent they resemble ''any'' real creature it's about as fair to describe them as "dogs with perms/weird heads" as it is to describe them as lions. [[https://photomarks.wordpress.com/2014/08/24/allerton-park-and-retreat-center/ Examples here, from Robert Allerton Park in central Illinois]]. (Allerton was a huge fu dog fan and built this garden to display his collection.)

* Averted in Creator/GordonRDickson's novel ''Wolf and Iron''. In the forward, the author relates that the original short story had the titular wolf acting like a dog. A reviewer gave him grief about it, so when he expanded it to a novel he made the wolf more, uh, wolflike.

** ''Wolf and Iron'' was originally a 1974 short story, "In Iron Years". There, the creature really was a dog.

* The case of Dino from ''TheFlintstones'' cannot be ignored here, though he was [[HorseOfADifferentColor that setting's equivalent of a dog]].

* The highly venomous snake Zith in the ''{{Malloreon}}'' readily befriends humans who stroke or feed her, purrs when happy, and shivers in cold weather. Also gives birth to live young, which though it sounds surprising, isn't as inaccurate as the rest. Quite a few snakes (many of them venomous; vipers got their name ''because'' of it) actually do give birth to live young.
