* MileyCyrus owns (or owned) a large assortment of pet dogs over the years, many of them adopted from animal shelters, and pictures of her and her dogs regularly appear on her {{Twitter}} account.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout|1}}'': Dogmeat, a dog which the player can have join their party, also makes a cameo (and acted as a non-canon bonus character) in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' (along with two normally recruitable cybernetic dogs companions: K-9 and Robodog, and a "special encounter" jinxed dog called Pariah) and appears (in 3D for the first time) in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' . He's found next to a dead body named Max, a homage to MadMax 2 and his dog, Dog. ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' also gives you Rex, a new cyberdog companion, and in the DLC "Old World Blues" you can get Roxie, a female cyberdog [[spoiler: (which can actually "mate" with Rex in several endings if certain conditions are attained)]] Many players have been known to SaveScum should their dog companions die in ''Fallout''. Human companions, meanwhile, are generally considered expendable. This is now sufficiently accepted that after ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' was announced, the games director publicly stated that this time [[http://ign.com/articles/2015/06/17/e3-2015-fallout-4-director-discusses-companion-functionality-immortality "... the dog can't die, because you're just going to re-load."]]

* The Texas A&M [[MilitaryAcademy Corps of Cadets]] has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reveille_(dog) Reveille]] [[LegacyCharacter VIII]], the latest in a dynasty of purebred Rough Collies. The original Reveille was a stray mutt that some cadets brought home after accidentally [[CrashIntoHello hitting her with their car]]. They brought her back to campus and smuggled her into the dorms, intending to quietly take her to the vet school in the morning. Instead, the dog revealed herself when she reacted about the same way everyone else does to the morning bugle call, Reveille, and howled in protest, thus leading to her name. Quite a bit of tradition surrounds Reveille. She is considered the highest ranking member of the Corps of Cadets, a Cadet General[[note]]designated by the US Army as thanks for the number of Texas A&M cadets who were commissioned as officers and served in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII[[/note]] , and all other cadets are expected to greet her accordingly, and address her as "Miss Reveille, Ma'am." She is to be attended by a cadet at all times, with this duty usually going to a specific cadet in Company E-2, known colloquially as "The Dog Corporal". She eats meals in the same dining hall as the cadets, Duncan Dining Hall[[note]]"because the food there is fit for a dog"[[/note]], and attends classes with the cadets. If she barks during class, it is said that class is dismissed per her authority[[note]]though this does not mean the professor will ''stop teaching''.[[/note]]. When a Reveille dies, she is buried in front of Kyle Field, [[UsefulNotes/CollegiateAmericanFootball facing the scoreboard so she can see how the Aggies are doing]], with a [[SeriousBusiness full funeral]], [[DueToTheDead where thousands of students and cadets attend.]]

* In ''Fanfic/{{Wonderful}}'', [[AntiVillain Rachel]] really loves her dogs. When she and a lot of her dogs were trapped in a building, badly hurt, and the main characters found them, she did not resist arrest in exchange for treatment for her dogs (and herself, but she insisted that they healed her dogs first).

* Played with in ''ComicBook/MortadeloYFilemon''.
** The pair often gets a trained detective dog to help them with their missions, but always turns out that the dog is either too stupid or too smart to be of any use. Mortadelo and Filemón always end up getting rid of the dog in an often abusive way.
** Also, Mortadelo or Filemón sometimes bring to the TIA offices a dog they claim to be their own pet, but it is only used in that particular chapter and is never heard of again.
** Filemón is known to have at least two different little female dogs, called "Menda" and "Secretaria". Both are used in different albums as a one-time joke to mock Ofelia, and have never appeared or mentioned again.
