** In general, pretty much any small wild feline can be mistaken for their domestic counterparts. The worst offenders of mistaken identity are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/African_wildcat African wildcats]] and [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_wildcat European Wildcats]], the latter made worse by frequently interbreeding with feral stock as well being the cats' early ancestors before domestication.

* In PiersAnthony's ''Race Against Time'', one clue that tips off to the protagonist that he's living in a human zoo is that his new "puppy" climbs trees, and his "kitten" has a prehensile tail. Whether they're aliens that only ''look'' like house pets, or actual pets modified via genetic engineering, he never does find out.

See also IAmNotWeasel, AllAnimalsAreDogs. If another animal is ''deliberately'' masquerading as a dog, or has been disguised as one by a human, it may be AssInALionSkin. When the creature is a sentient lifeform trying to pass as a dog, it's TheDogIsAnAlien.
