* Obscure anime ''Massugu ni Ikou'' averts this as a plot point: Mametarou feels a lot of anxiety about being a mixed-breed dog when all of his friends are pedigrees. When he finally admits his status to his {{Cloudcuckoolander}} girlfriend Hanako, [[spoiler: she happily responds, [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming "Then I'll be a crossbreed, too!"]]]] Hanako herself is a purebred Kishu Inu, but she brings an interesting wrinkle to the trope that's very much TruthInTelevision but rarely mentioned in fiction: she's from an old and highly-prized line, but her proportions aren't quite ideal for the breed and so she was removed from the breeding program. It's not too uncommon for breeders in RealLife to do this, keeping only the animals closest to the breed standard and selling the others as pets (often at a much lower price than a "show quality" animal would go for).

* Averted with Sandy from ''ComicStrip/LittleOrphanAnnie'', who is a nondescript looking mongrel. Played with in ''Film/Annie1982'', where Sandy is played by a purebred but is referred to as a mutt. Played straight in ''Film/Annie2014'' as Sandy is played by a Shiba Inu.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Felidae}}'' is a [[RareFemaleExample rare cat example.]] The majority of the characters have defined breeds. Oddly, the breed known as the European Shorthair seems to be occasionally used to refer to cats that aren't purebred, when the proper term would be Domestic Shorthair/Longhair, or Moggy. It's unknown if this is a translation hiccup, a mistake on the author's part, or intentional, or catbreeding marching on (the series began in 89, many breeds changed since), but it makes it uncertain whether or not all the cats really are purebred.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheSims3 Pets'' subverts this. Most dogs are purebred but there are also some "designer dogs" available. You can also design a mutt for yourself.

* Averted with Mr Fusspot in ''Discworld/MakingMoney'' who, as a rich old lady's pampered pet, you might ''expect'' to be a purebred. Instead, when she challenges Moist to identify Mr Fusspot's breed, he correctly says "Er, all of them?"

* In ''Disney/OliverAndCompany'', all the main canine characters are purebreds (including a chihuahua and a saluki) with the exception of Dodger.
* Other than the titular Tramp, many of the side characters in ''Disney/LadyAndTheTramp'' are purebred. The sequel follows this as well. In a case of GenderEqualsBreed, most of the Lady's litter are females that resemble purebred cocker spaniels, while the male puppy, Scamp, resembles his mongrel father.
* The Pixar film ''WesternAnimation/{{Up}}'' has several dogs: one is a Golden Retriever, another is a doberman, and the rest are all bulldogs and other "bully breeds".

* Averted in ''Animation/RoadsideRomeo.'' Except for Charlie Anna (a bulldog), none of the cast appear to be purebred. This is actually rather surprising in Romeo's case, since he started out as the pampered dog of an obviously wealthy family before being abandoned - one might expect such a family to get a pedigreed pet.

* ''Film/{{Benji}}'' is probably the most famous aversion to this trope, being a mixed-breed shelter dog. In fact, the original producer wanted to use a shelter dog to play Benji in hopes of raising awareness about the plight of abandoned and unwanted dogs.
