* In the ''Waylon!'' books (spin-off series of Sara Pennypacker and Marla Frazee's ''Literature/{{Clementine}}'' books), Waylon has always wanted a dog but never been allowed one because his mother is allergic to pet hair of any sort. It's mentioned in ''Waylon! One Awesome Thing'' that about a year before the story he had started building a robot dog and done pretty well, but stopped when he made the eyes because they were dull black, like stones, and it bothered him. He eventually came to realize that a robot dog could never understand him in the way a real dog could.

* The ''Series/BlackMirror'' series 4 episode "Metalhead" prominently features {{Killer Robot}}s referred to as "Dogs". However, [[NonIndicativeName they only really resemble dogs in that they're quadrupedal]]; their name and design are references to [[AluminumChristmasTrees real-life robots being designed by Boston Dynamics]] such as the "[=BigDog=]", which yes, [[UncannyValley are just]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNZPRsrwumQ as creepy-looking in real life]] (but thankfully nowhere near as armed).

* The remake of TheStepfordWives contains a robot dog which looks like a toy dog made of gold rubber. Due to the movie's inability to decide whether the wives were robot replacements or just had mind control chips, it could either be an actual robot or [[FridgeHorror an actual dog put into a toy-like body that can barely walk]]. A minor plot point suggests the latter.
