* 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. Its arguably one of the few things he is still emotionally attached ro [[spoiler: as mobsters get Frank to confess where he hid their money he had stolen by threatening to kill the dog.]]

* 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).
