Over the years, while we or our kids watched their favorite shows and cartoons, there were always those animated characters in various shows who resembled some real life person we knew or related with. Though they were our heroes, their lives were insignificant without their amazing pets who continue to influence our lives even now and we relate our pet dogs with them. We try and find those characteristics in our dogs to be able to cherish those cartoon days. Some of the loved and favorite cartoon dogs are:

Pluto is very well trained and always knows how to escape tricky situations like his master. He has a childlike nature and hates cats to the core. He always does good in the end letting good win over evil and while some of his behavior may be interpreted as stupidity, Pluto is a very smart dog. He gets blamed for things he has not done in the house but always forgiven by his generous master. Pluto also falls in love easily and does anything to win the heart of lady love.
