* While he is a very violent AntiHero who kills criminals with extreme prejudice, [[ComicBook/ThePunisher Frank Castle]] in ''Series/Daredevil2015'' had adopted a dog the Irish mob had been using for fights after he killed its previous owners.

* Invoked with an entire ''family'' of heroes in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''. In the first chapter, the five Stark children and their bastard brother find six orphaned direwolf pups, which will grow up into mighty wolves. There are four males and two females; one of the males an albino outcast. Naturally, the bastard adopts the albino, the three Stark boys take the other males, and the two Stark girls take the females. The wolves become their closest companions, reflecting each child's personality, fate, and [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent more]].
** Downplayed with Sandor Clegane, the Hound, who loves dogs far more than he likes people but who is by no means heroic.
*** In the case of the Cleganes, ItRunsInTheFamily. The man who earned House Clegane the title was a Lannister dog-handler and the family crest is or, three dogs passant sable (or in plain English, three black running dogs on a yellow field).

* ''ABoyAndHisDog'': It's just him and his dog AfterTheEnd. Oh, wait! There's a girl that also survived. Then again, this is Creator/HarlanEllison writing, so the boy is [[SubvertedTrope hardly a hero]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/WolfHall'', Thomas Cromwell likes small dogs that remind him of the one he had to abandon in his youth; as an adult he acquires a number of them and calls them all Bella after that first pet. He genuinely sympathizes with Anne Boleyn when she's crying over the fatal (and suspicious) fall of her spaniel from a window and knows very well not to suggest she just get a new one.

* In ''ComicBook/TheBoys'', Billy Butcher may be a general jerk and super killer, but he genuinely loves his [[BigFriendlyDog inaptly named Brtitish Bulldog Terror]], and he usually serves to [[MoralityPet show Billy's more human side]]. [[spoiler: When Jack From Jupiter kills Terror, [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Billy completely loses it]]]].

* Played with in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' with Roy Mustang. He gives a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny famous speech]] about his love of dogs, but the reason he gives for this affection is that you can treat them like crap and they'll still be loyal to you.
