* Done with a twist in ''WesternAnimation/TheBraveLittleToaster'', in which the "pets" are [[AnimateInanimateObjects household appliances]]. Radio even broadcasts one such story, which serves as motivation for the others.

* The film "Gypsy Colt" which is basically a variation of Lassie Come Home, but with a horse instead of a dog -it even mirrors some of the scenes from the film it takes it's inspiration from - such as the horse trotting through the village to meet the child as she comes out of school.
