* 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]]]].

* The Houndmaster of VideoGame/DarkestDungeon is clearly attached to his Irish Wolfhound and is by far the most heroic of the assorted adventurers you can choose from. His damage animation shows him shielding his hound from harm with his own body, and his battle quips mostly revolve around praising and reassuring his hound. The bond is mutual, many of the Houndmasters battle and camp skills highlight the hound's dedication, with abilities like "lick wounds" and "therapy dog" for healing and reducing stress. As a duo, they are the most stoic unit [[spoiler: when facing the prospect of being sacrificed to the Heart of Darkness]]

** Ferelden culture in general loves dogs in general and particularly the majestic [[http://dragonage.wikia.com/wiki/Mabari Mabari Hound]] for their strength, courage, and intelligence (which is implied to be on the same level as humans). The capital city of Denerim is even compared to the Mabari and the term "Dog Lords" is used as a slur for Fereldens by other cultures.
** The Hawke family can have their own mabari warhound in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' (if you get the Black Emporium DLC). Even your most moody party members can't help but like him, though Anders states that he's immune to his charms due to being a cat person. Par for the course; they're Fereldans.
** Cullen in the ''Tresspasser'' DLC for ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'' adopts a Mabari (or, as is typical, the Mabari adopts him). And again... [[RunningGag Cullen is a Fereldan]].

* In ''VideoGame/RuleOfRose'', the heroine (and only remotely sane character) is symbolized by dogs- most obviously, her pet puppy. She often cuddles this puppy and gives him treats; in fact [[spoiler:the dog's murder is partly what motivates her to fight the BigBad]]. The other, less moral, characters are symbolized by different animals and the BigBad extolls at great length [[spoiler:her]] ''specific'' hatred of dogs. Like, there are multiple diary entries where [[spoiler:she]] does nothing other than talk about how filthy and inferior to her they are.
