* ''Film/WhiteBimBlackEar'' plays with this trope. Bim is a purebred Gordon setter, but he's an albino, white with black spots instead of the black with mahogany that is supposed to be the coloring of the breed. His breeder is on the verge of drowning Bim when a customer buys him.

* Dog-like VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} are usually based on specific dog breeds (Snubbull and Granbull are {{Bully Bulldog}}s, Furfrou is a standard poodle, Lillipup is a Yorkshire terrier), mythological creatures (Arcanine is based on [[Myth/JapaneseMythology the shisa]], Lucario on [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Anbuis]]), or both (Houndour and especially Houndoom are doberman {{Hellhound}}s).

* {{Postapocalyptic Dog}}s are a recurring element of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'', and since [[YouAllLookFamiliar the same few models are used for all dogs]], if one is a purebred then many more are--despite the setting not being some place you'd expect people to keep distinct breeds:
** ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout 1}} 1]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}} 2]]'' are the only full exceptions by merit of the in-game model and the [[LegacyCharacter original]] [[CanineCompanion Dogmeat's]] [[https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/3/3e/FO01_NPC_Dogmeat.png/revision/latest?cb=20140424104320 character portrait]] not resembling any particular breed. The model for the [[RobotDog robodogs]], including K9, is a slightly modified version of the regular one.
** All of the non-mutated dogs in ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}} 3]]'', including its Dogmeat, look like Australian cattle dogs, a reference to Max's dog in ''Film/TheRoadWarrior''. The mutated dogs, though suffering from hair loss and some radiations burns, look strangely like pitbulls. ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'' recycles these two models, modifies the non-mutated dog model to make the [[RobotDog cyberdogs]] (including Rex), and adds in the [[SavageWolf wolf-like]] Legion mongrel.
** The generic, non-mutated dogs in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' are rottweilers, albeit with some [[PaletteSwap coat variation]]. Dogmeat, who has a fully unique model in this game, is a German shepherd. The mongrels and mutant hounds are [[BodyHorror far more heavily deformed]] than earlier counterparts, though still recognizably similar to dobermans and [[BullyBulldog bulldogs]], respectively.

* 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).

* ''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?"
