* Dogs are capable of passing the "mirror test", which shows whether a creature has a mental image of itself. Dogs being smell-oriented, rather than sight-oriented, however means that you need to adapt the kind of mirror. Namely, a tree.

* ''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.

** False. Catbert is the evil one (it's even in his name for goodness sake). Dogbert is mischevious, at worst.
*** Dogbert is a scam artist. He himself implies that his scams could easily kill a consumer and that he even wants to get rid of the witnesses. It may be satire but that is pretty amoral.

* Despite his laziness Buck the Bundy's dog from ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' is smarter than his owners. Granted, this is not a significant challenge and does not prove that Buck is above canine-normal intelligence.
** He knows what channel ''Jeopardy'' comes on. That's pretty good for a dog, really.

* Spunky from ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife'' was this. There was even a promo-short for the series called "How to Tell if Your Dog is Brainless."

* There is an internet meme which shows how a cat and a dog view their respective existences. The dog will say things like "Walk! YAY! Food! YAY! Pet! YAY! Outside! YAY!" Meanwhile, the cat [[CatsAreMean carefully plots revenge on and escape from its human captors]].
** [[http://www.goodeatsfanpage.com/Humor/otherhumor/dog_cat_diary.htm And here it is...]]
-->'''Dog:''' Dog food! My favorite thing!
-->'''Cat:''' My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while the other inmates and I are fed hash or some sort of dry nuggets. Although I make my contempt for the rations perfectly clear, I nevertheless must eat something in order to keep up my strength.
* The Simple Dog from ''Webcomic/HyperboleAndAHalf'', full stop. This dog is incapable of operating a staircase or getting out from under a blanket, and when put in sled-dog booties to prevent damage to the wooden floor, stared up with an expression captioned in the story's accompanying cartoon as "Where R My Legs?" Allie's other dog, Helper Dog, appears to be of normal canine intelligence, but on the other hand is a hair-triggered mass of neuroses and melodrama.

* [[{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] is fairly bright, albeit with a blind spot regarding the name of that round-headed kid.

Added DiffLines:

* Poochy in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld2YoshisIsland''. He's practically indestructible in that game, and as one bonus level so aptly puts it, Poochy ain't stupid.

* In the Italian comic book ''Lupo Alberto'', set in a WorldOfFunnyAnimals, dogs are on average as smart as the other animals. In particular the most preminent one, Moses (a bobtail sheepdog), runs the [=McKenzie=] farm not just by his considerable strength but by virtue of having more common sense and being far more money savvy than most other characters and has shown himself much smarter than Gideon the cat (not that it's actually that difficult), and the one time he was forced to take a long vacation he hired a temporary replacement through an agency that sent ''another'' bobtail sheepdog who did an exceptional job.
