Famous dogs we all wish we had as pets>
These famous dogs caught their big breaks on the silver screen and went on to become just as recognizable and beloved as their human costars.
Lady and Tramp in Disney’s Lady and the Tramp (1955)
In our number spot for the famous dogs are lady and Tramp.
What could be better than the love story of 2 doggos? Lady and the Tramp were originally produced in 1955 by Disney which told about the story of a stray mongrel named Tramp and an “upper-class” American Cocker Spaniel called Lady. They met each other and went on an adventure, eventually, this doge couple fell in love. Tramp was adopted by Lady’s owner family and they lived together
Toto from The Wizard Of Oz (1939)
Toto was also among the most popular canine movie star. She played in many movies; however, her most notable film was still The Wizard Of Oz. People were so used to her being Toto that Spitz decided to change her name from Terry to Toto. Nowadays, we can still see her memorial in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
Marley from Marley and Me (2008)
It is the real-life story of John Grogan and his family with their dog Marley the Labrador Retriever. Marley was so energetic, so strong, and so active that he often broke things within the house. Gradually, they accepted such was Marley’s nature and loved him. To some extent, we could say it’s like a love-hate relationship but sometimes, it might not be Marley who needed to change, but it was us.
Scooby Doo from Scooby Doo Where Are You! (1969–1970)
Scooby Doo Where Are You was a fascinating mystery comedy cartoon series produced by Hanna-Barbera. The story told about 5 friends: Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Norville “Shaggy” Rogers, and of course their trusty Great Dane doggo – Scooby Doo. Scooby Doo was an extremely interesting “character” since he could speak English in… broken tongue. Fortunately for Scooby Doo fans, the series is still running even to this day with the latest film Scooby-Doo! Shaggy’s Showdown in 2017.
The Queen’s Corgis from The Queen (2006)
Queen Elizabeth II had Elizabeth II had 5 corgis named Monty, Emma, Linnet, Willow and Holly and 4 “dorgis” Unfortunately, all of the 5 corgis have died, with the death of remaining Corgi – Willow in 2018. Of course, seeing the Queen playing with her beloved Corgis was not something we could see every day. But at least we could catch a glimpse of such memorable moments with the film The Queen in 2006.
Milo from The Mask (1994)
The Mask (1994) was a fantasy comedy film directed by Charles Russell. The Mask told the story of a bank clerk named Stanley Ipkiss. One day he found a peculiar mask which changed his personality entirely and gave him peculiar, yet crazy power. The film was rated positively thanks to the funny moments and jokes, especially Ipkiss’s Jack Russell Terrier dog – Milo.
Buddy from Air Bud (1997)
basketball-player doge is definitely something else. Funny enough, that was what Buddy the Golden Retriever did in the movie Air Bud in 1997. Air Bud told a story about Buddy, a Golden Retriever who could actually play basketball! Eventually, he even joined a “hooman” basketball team and joined the competition with them.
Beethoven from Beethoven (1992)
This is Beethoven the “St. Bernard doge.” the Beethoven movie in 1992 was among the most successful dog-themed movies to date. The movie was about George Newton and his family who adopted a stray St. Bernard named Beethoven by his children. Despite being deemed as dangerous, Beethoven actually helped to change his troubled family a lot.
LASSIE COME HOME (1943)
Lassie was probably among the most iconic canine movie star to date with the movie Lassie Come Home in 1943. The film took place in the Great Depression Era when Mr. and Mrs. Carraclough had to sell their Lassie the Rough Collie to the rich Duke of Rudling. Many people who have seen Lassie Come Home would surely fall in love with this lovely pooch. Nowadays we can still see Pal’s other name – Lassie – in Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Dug from Up (2009)
let’s take a look at a “virtual doge” named Dug the Golden Retriever from the Pixar movie Up in 2009. Dug was a Golden Retriever raised by Charles Muntz. He could speak thanks to his special collar invented by Muntz which could transfer Dug’s thoughts to speech. The end credits showed a scene indicating that Dug mated with a golden retriever and had lots, lots of puppies (at least 20).
