Top 10 Movie Dogs
Not quite a werewolf, Harry’s Godfather Sirius manages to transform in to Padfoot thanks to his being an animagus. Allowing him to accompany Harry in situations where he would otherwise be spotted (and no doubt arrested), Sirius’s alter-ego is a lot cuter than the ferocious Fluffy who appears in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
4. Hooch – Turner and Hooch / K-9 – K-9
Okay, technically this is cheating but they both star in detective comedies that were released within four months of each other so we’re forgiven, right? Hooch is Hanks’s star witness who tears up his home whilst James Belushi is given K-9 as a means of protecting him from a murderous drug dealer. Both deliver the laughs so both deserve a place on our list!
3. Lassie – Various Lassie films
The one, the only, it’s Lassie! What’s that? Someone’s stuck down the old mine?? You could count on Lassie to sniff out danger. Forever being reincarnated, Lassie’s one of cinema’s longest legacies, having been saving people since the 1940′s.
2. Sam - I Am Legend
Featuring in one of the saddest doggie deaths in cinema history, we had to pull ourselves together after watching Will Smith kill his canine best friend in I Am Legend. After rushing to save her owner Sam is infected by the zombie epidemic that has ravished the world leaving Smith no choice but to kill or be killed. He’d had her since a puppy and she was his only companion, godammit! Pass us the tissues!
1. Gromit – Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit
Ah, the great voiceless Gromit. Winning our hearts in Aardman’s sporadic Wallace and Gromit TV series, Gromit manages to voice unspoken words through his masterful facial expressions. Perhaps the best embodiment of the relationship held between man and dog, Wallace and Gromit’s escapades thrill as much as they entertain. With his saving the hapless Wallace on countless occasions we think Gromit would be a pretty cool dog to know.
