* Series/''InspectorRex'': The protagonist dog is definitely not a dumb. Not only he is useful to solve murder cases, but also is very capable of outsmarting criminals.

* Mr. Peanutbutter on ''WesternAnimation/BoJackHorseman'' plays heavily with this trope. He's a yellow Labrador who, while never exactly portrayed as "dumb," certainly seems oblivious to unpleasant things around him, not the least his supposed "best friend" BoJack constantly insulting him (his occasional dog-like actions like fetching, chasing the mailman or rolling around on the ground don't help). In later seasons it's deconstructed, showing, that in large part, he deliberately adopts an AntiNihilist attitude to avoid dealing with problems he doesn't like or understand. It's also PlayedForDrama in his marriage to Diane Nguyen, as Mr. Peanutbutter seems unable to grasp why his wife doesn't appreciate his grand romantic gestures.

* For the most part, the dogs in ''Massugu ni Ikou'' aren't explicitly stupid. The closest examples of this trope are Hanako, who is more of a CloudCuckoolander than anything else, and Shokora, whose main problem is that he is LiteralMinded. Mametarou and Sora are subversions: they might have dumb moments, but give no indication that they lack intelligence. Averting this trope outright are Sebastian, Gen, and Jack - Sebastian being fairly down-to-Earth, Gen being an honorable and sensitive GentleGiant, and Jack being a very intelligent JerkAss (later a JerkWithAHeartOfGold).

* Subverted in ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'' series by MargaretWeis and Tracy Hickman. Haplo's nameless dog is repeatedly shown to have the most common sense of any character in the series and often acts as his AntiHero owner's moral center. [[spoiler:Of course, it turns out that Dog is actually the physical manifestation of Haplo's soul, so this is justified.]]

** On the other hand, dogs who use the written language (surprisingly many of them) are portrayed as using poor spelling and grammar.

* We learn on ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'' that dogs actually used to be smart but when they found out that cats are actually alien invaders who have enslaved humanity, our feline overlords lowered their intelligence with a stupidity ray so they wouldn't tell us.
** This is simply one of Garfield's fantasies on how cats are superior beings; he also claims that dogs have a very small brain, and that their tongue is ''nine yards long'' on average.
