[=Dogfaces=], or dognoses, are PettingZooPeople dogs that populate the ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse, ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse, WesternAnimation/DuckTales, WesternAnimation/GoofTroop, AGoofyMovie, and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'' and some of the ClassicDisneyShorts. One even shows up in the WesternAnimation/QuackPack episode, "All Hands On Duck." {{Goofy}} and his son, Max are supposed to be [=dogfaces=] too. Similar character designs have been used by other cartoon studios as well, though Disney is largely the TropeCodifier.

'''Physical Characteristics Common to [=Dogfaces=][=/=]Dognoses:'''
* They often have [[FurIsSkin human-skintone colored fur or skin]].
** WesternAnimation/{{Goofy}} and Max have black fur all over their bodies. Goofy has a flesh colored muzzle and Max has a flesh colored face.
** In MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers, the Beagle Boys have grey fur all over.
* They usually have muzzles like dogs.
* They almost always have [[HumanlikeFootAnatomy feet shaped at least somewhat like human feet]].
* They [[InexplicablyTailless do not have tails]].
* They often have [[FurryFemaleMane human-like head hair]], and sometimes have human-like facial hair and body hair.
* They usually have black or brown (typically button) noses.
** But Goofy Jr., Max's prototype, has a pink nose.
* They usually have ears that flop ("rose ears" like those of a greyhound or bulldog) or those that droop ("pendant ears" like those of a bloodhound)
** But [[GoofTroop Pistol]] has erect ears like a Chihuahua, [[AGoofyMovie Roxanne]] has ears that [[FurryEarDissonance look like human ears]], and Goofy Jr. and [[GoofTroop Peg]] are drawn ''[[ArtMajorBiology without any pinnae (ear flaps)]]'' whatsoever.
** Sometimes they will have completely humanlike ears.
* They usually range in portrayal from {{Funny Animal}}s to PettingZooPeople and anywhere in between.
** Though [[WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie Roxanne]] and, believe it or not, The ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'' version of [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti [=Bigfoot=]]] are Borderline LittleBitBeastly.

Even though they are most prominent in the Creator/{{Disney}} universe, [=dogfaces=]/dognoses are not exclusive to Creator/{{Disney}}.

----

!!Tropes that apply to Creator/{{Disney}} Dogfaces:

* [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti [=Bigfoot=]]]: There is a [=dogface=] version of him in ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie''.
* CarlBarks
* CartoonCreature
* DependingOnTheArtist: Sometimes, dognoses are drawn with human-like ears.
* DonRosa
* ExecutiveMeddling: CarlBarks loved drawing humans, and wanted to include them in his DonaldDuck stories, but the higher ups demanded Dogfaces to be used all the time. He snuck some humans here and there, before completely sending his bosses' wishes to screw themselves with his classic story ''Dangerous Disguise'', in which Donald and his nephews are the sole ducks in a world otherwise exclusively populated by humans. He got the warning of his life for that one, and was forbidden from using humans ever again. His chief editor declared that it simply looked bad, and that it "took the ducks out of their own world".
** Subverted in the WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck ''cartoons''. If you pay attention, dogfaces populate Donald's world only early on; unlike many of the MickeyMouse toons before, Don's universe was much more likely to shelter actual humans; in fact, WesternAnimation/QuackPack settled on using them instead of dogfaces because there was already a rich history of duck-human interactions on these WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts.
* FantasticRacism: A mild example. The two richest individuals in Duckburg are duck people, while most of the middle and lower classes and seemingly the entire criminal element (the Beagle Boys) is made up entirely of [=Dogfaces=]. Think about it.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal
* FurIsSkin: Many of them have this.
* FurryBaldness: Some older male [=Dogfaces=] have this.
* FurryDenial: They act completely human, they are almost never aknowledged to be dogs, and they refer to themselves as "people," "person," "man," "men," and any other human-related term. They don't refer to themselves by any dog-related term at all. They don't even act anything like dogs. Both [[MickeyMouse Mickey]], Minnie, and Mortimer are still referred to as mice, and [[WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck Donald]], Daisy, the Nephews, Scrooge, Von Drake, and the rest of the Duck family are still referred to as ducks, however.
** In the MickeyMouse, Donald Duck, [=Goofy=], and other WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts related worlds, "dogs," save for Penelope Poodle from ''MinniesBowToons'', [[FurryConfusion are ''always'' nonanthropomorphized]], which in turn, actually include Pluto, and as a result, many people are still determining what animal [=Goofy=] actually is.
*** On ''GoofTroop'', Pete (who is of course a cat, although in ''Goof Troop'' this was made ambiguous) had a pet dog called Chainsaw, who acted like a real dog. There was even an episode where Max, frustrated by Chainsaw's misbehavior, muttered, "I hate dogs" (!).
* FurryFemaleMane: Most of the female dogfaces, though a lot of male dogfaces have human-like head hair too.
* FurryReminder: One dogface in ''AnExtremelyGoofyMovie'' catches a Frisbee in his mouth like a normal dog would.
* HumanlikeFootAnatomy: They have feet like that of humans.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: The female [=Dogfaces=] in ''GoofTroop'', ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'', and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'' look a little more humanlike than the male ones in general, to the point where their noses, muzzles, and ears can often be their only non-human feature.
* OlderThanYouThink
* SpeciesSurname: Completely averted, but for some reason played straight with [[QuirkyMinibossSquad the Beagle Boys]] and Penny Pooch from ''Minnie 'N Me'' line of merchandise.
* UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt: [[strike: CarlBarks]] DonRosa apologized for depicting him as a dognose for the sake of consistency in the biography of Scrooge [=McDuck=].

----

!!Disney Examples:

* Disney/TreasurePlanet: The character, Dr. Doppler is actually one of these, though he atypically evidences some canine behavior traits.
* WesternAnimation/{{Pete}} and P.J. are portrayed as [=Dogfaces=] in ''GoofTroop'', ''WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie'', and ''An Extremely Goofy Movie'', but they are really cats, even in those appearances.
** [=Pete=] and his (unnamed) son in their [[TheCameo Cameo]] in "Father's Week End" are actual [=Dogfaces=], however.
* Most secondary, tertiary and background characters in the ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse.
* Surprisingly averted with Penelope Poodle from ''MinniesBowToons''; she is an anthropomorphic poodle instead of a dogface.

----

!!Tropes that apply to Non-Disney Dogfaces:

* CaptainErsatz: The bank robbers in [[http://disneyweirdness.blogspot.com/2010/10/excellent-idea.html this John Stanley Woody Woodpecker strip]] look awfully like the [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Beagle Boys]].
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal
* FurIsSkin: Like the Disney ones, most of them have this.
* OlderThanYouThink
* SpeciesSurname: Mostly averted as with the Disney examples, but somehow played straight with the titular character of the MGMOneshotCartoon, "Officer Pooch."

----

!! Non-Disney Examples:

* J. P. Cubish from one WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoon and ''Daffy Duck's Quackbusters''
* WesternAnimation/BettyBoop started out as one of these before [[ArtEvolution her dog nose was removed and her floppy ears replaced with hoop earrings.]]
* The very first episode of the Fleischer ComicStrip/{{Popeye}} cartoon featured dogfaces as background characters, though this is an example of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness, most other Popeye shorts feature strictly humans.
* '''Mazing Man'': Maze's best friend/HeterosexualLifePartner Denton Fixx is fully human, but has a dog face (though it makes him look like a dogface). (The [[FloatingHeadSyndrome Floating Head]] in the upper left [[http://d1466nnw0ex81e.cloudfront.net/iss/600w/482/104821/645444.jpg here.)]]
* There are a few WesternAnimation/TexAveryMGMCartoons, especially in the 1950s, that feature dogfaces.
** They showed up a lot in Warner Bros. oneshots from the 30's as well, many of which, such as "Thugs With Dirty Mugs", were directed by Creator/TexAvery.
* [=Dogfaces=] even show up in Creator/WalterLantz's [[http://stanleystories.blogspot.com/2010/02/killer-not-filler-john-stanleys-woody.html New Funnies comics]] that WesternAnimation/WoodyWoodpecker also shows up in.
* The original ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}'' (a.k.a. Shoeshine) and Sweet Polly Purebred look like dognoses, unlike the {{Disney}} [[Film/{{Underdog}} version]] of both characters, who are a beagle and a cocker spaniel respectively.
* The dogs in the movie, ''RockAndRule''.
* A literary example would be the the Fetchers from ''[[KeysToTheKingdom Mister Monday]]''.
* The title character in ''Officer Pooch'', an MGMOneshotCartoon that Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbara directed.
* The Whos from various Creator/DrSeuss works (like in ''HortonHearsAWho'') are similar. They are a type of DemiHuman in animated and live-action ''WesternAnimation/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' though.
* Several characters from ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'', such as Binky Barnes.
* Bosko the Talk-Ink Kid was eventually redesigned into one of these to mask that he was originally a racist, politically incorrect caricature of a black person.
* Of the various FunnyAnimal people in ''SphinxAndTheCursedMummy'', the most common are dog-like people. They bear a strong resemblance to the Disney dogfaces, especially in their "snouts." Given their Egyptian origins, they're probably jackal-people.
* One of the planes from ''WesternAnimation/JayJayTheJetPlane'' has a face that looks like that of a dogface.
* Leo Ortolani's peculiar style makes all of his human characters look like not dogs, but monkeys. Ths is especially evident for the protagonist of ''ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}}'', who without his Rat-costume seems perpetually naked and in fact looks like a monkey rather than a human.
* Timburr and its evolutionary family from Franchise/{{Pokemon}} resemble overly muscular dog-faces.
* Most of Gondoland's population in ''MuzzyInGondoland'' with the exception of the green goblinoid Corvax and possibly the King (who looks like anthropomorphic lion, but can be considered a Dogface with mane-like hair).
* Some {{Blackface}} style caracitured black African people in early 20th century comics look rather like short-muzzled, black-furred dogfaces with peach or light skintone colored muzzles.
** Unfortunately that may be where this trope has its roots.
* The female-gendered tow truck in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' episode, "Calling All Cars," has a face that looks like that of a dogface.
* An alternate nickname for [=GI=]s in WorldWarII.
* The titular character of ''ParappaTheRapper'' looks like a dogface with floppy ears.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' episode, "Teacher's Pet," Crocker turned his mom into something resembling a dogface after hooking her to his Mother machine.
--> Crocker: I hooked Mother up to Mother, but she got a little too much bloodhound.
--> Unnamed Man: That's one freaky bloodhound.
** Unlike most of the examples, she acts like a dog and even [[RunningOnAllFours runs on all fours]].
* Some of the generic civvies in ''SonicUnderground''.
* Music/TheClash's album ''Music/{{Sandinista}}!'' has liner notes formatted like a fictitious newspaper, "The Armegideon Times". All the illustrations in this newspaper feature cartoon dogfaces rather than humans.
* The musicians and people on the album cover of Music/FrankZappa's ''Music/CruisingWithRubenAndTheJets'' all have dog noses and ears. Album cover designer Cal Schenkel did this as a {{Homage}} to Creator/CarlBarks.
