Top 10 Disney Dogs

These are the cuddly canines from the universe of Walt Disney. Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Disney Dogs.

For this list, we’re focusing on the standout pups that made their particular film just a little more dog-tastic.

#10: Dodger
“Oliver & Company” (1988)

Based on the Artful Dodger from Charles Dickens’ “Oliver Twist,” this worldly Jack Russell Terrier is a great guide and friend to the titular kitty-cat. A street-smart canine who’s one heck of a sausage stealer, Dodger’s got a fitting motto to go with his carefree attitude [“Why Should I Worry?”]. Voiced by Billy Joel, Dodger has loads of street bravado to rely on when things get rough for Oliver and company. Yeah, he’s a little full of himself and quite the flirt, but Dodger can step up when faced with vicious Dobermans or anyone foolish enough to question his doggy toughness.

#9: Max the Sheepdog
“The Little Mermaid” (1989)

One look at this large sheepdog’s face reveals a pooch that just wants to be loved. Sadly, Max has been through the ringer, most notably when he was left ON A SINKING SHIP and had to be rescued by Prince Eric. Sure, this big ol’ furball can be slightly annoying, but he’s harmless. Oh, did we mention Max is also super-smart? He recognizes Ariel for the mermaid she is even when she’s walking on two legs – even when Eric does not. Plus, his ability to sniff out baddies makes him even more useful. And, there’s nothing he likes more than a big ol’ wet kiss to the face.

#8: Slinky Dog
“Toy Story” franchise (1995-)

Sporting a southern drawl, a sturdy frame and the obvious central slinky, this Disney dog is loyal and trusting almost to a fault – especially if your name happens to be Sheriff Woody. A dachshund – just like his owner Andy’s real-live dog Buster – Slinky is as much man’s best friend as any flesh and blood pooch. One could argue that Slink isn’t all there, and that’s fair, because it’s most definitely true, physically speaking. Originally voiced by Jim Varney, Slinky has a lived-in vocal quality that lends some true grit to his words, but he’s really just a warm and cuddly wiener-dog toy that appreciates true friendship.

#7: Copper
“The Fox and the Hound” (1981)

When he was a curious and playful puppy, this hound dog was forced to hide a forbidden friendship: the best days of Copper’s younger years were spent carousing with his pal Tod the fox, unaware that his master Amos, and even that frightening Irish Wolfhound Chief, wanted to mold him into something more than just a free-lovin’ mutt. Copper then grows up to be a talented hunting dog, but even so he understands the enduring power of friendship. Copper has so much heart it hurts, and this strengthens not only his character but also what is definitely one of Disney’s more touching relationships.

#6: Bolt
“Bolt” (2008)

He’s not a superhero, but he plays one on TV. Voiced by John Travolta, this doggie is a somewhat delusional White Shepherd: he thinks he’s an actual superhero, so you can’t really fault Bolt for his intense bravado. That’s why Super Bolt gets energized by his mission to save his owner Penny. But when the truth about Bolt’s life emerges, well, he doesn’t just give up like some pretentious Hollywood mutt. Bolt understands exactly who he is, and so he utilizes one of his most “redonculous” traits to save the day and the lives of his closest friends.

#5: Lady and Tramp
“Lady and the Tramp” (1955)

One of these dogs is refined and classy; the other prefers the streets. But opposites attract, and despite Tramp’s swashbuckling ways, he’s still quite the gentleman and understands the value of a well-timed Italian meal. Sure, Lady starts out as a naïve cocker spaniel and is not always pleased by her significant other’s lifestyle, but even so these Disney dogs find a balance. This canine connection Lady and Tramp share helps protect them from all the dirty rats of their world… as well as the humans that want to muzzle them, and ensures they get the happily ever after they deserve.

#4: Dug
“Up” (2009)

While he may not be the smartest of dogs, Dug does have the gift of gab, and uses it – excessively –around Carl Fredricksen. With his undeniably friendly presence, one can’t help but smile at the sight of Dug; he’s just a plump and endearing Golden Retriever. This Disney dog exudes perpetual happiness; with his tongue and tail just a-waggin’ as he experiences all that life has to offer. Of course, he also proves quite useful with that innovative collar of his, courtesy of one Chuck Muntz. And in fact, Dug plays a special role in “Up,” bringing a sense of closure to his new pal and – eventually – loving master.

#3: Pongo and Perdita
“One Hundred and One Dalmatians” (1961)

The mama and papa of 15 of their own Dalmatian pups – plus 84 surrogate puppies – Pongo and Perdita are the proudest pooch parents you’ll ever see. Daddy Dalmatian begins the film as a restless bachelor, while Mommy mutt is elegant and refined, but together the canine companions show an astounding amount of chemistry for animated animals. Both eventually grow into their parental roles, with Pongo becoming the protective pop and Perdita using her motherly sixth sense to sniff out danger. Given the threat of one Cruella de Vil, younger viewers connect with Pongo and Perdy’s plight, but thanks to their presence in this Disney flick, it’s now a beloved classic.

#2: Pluto
“Disney” franchise (1930-)

One of the most famous faces in the entire Disney canon, this well-trained dog is a good friend to Mickey Mouse, acting as a pet, a buddy and sometimes a moral center to his mousey master. Accused of being a bit empty-headed, Pluto’s no dumb dog; he can just be a bit clumsy sometimes. He’s also got an above-average sense of smell; unfortunately for Pluto, that gets him into trouble as much as it gets him out of it. He may not walk or talk like some other Disney animals, but Pluto relays a mixture of emotions that most viewers can relate to.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

- Nana
“Peter Pan” (1953)

- The Footstool
“Beauty and the Beast” (1991)

- Toby
“The Great Mouse Detective” (1986)

#1: Goofy
“Disney” franchise (1932-)

Of all the Disney dogs out there, there’s one particular pup that stands out the most – and he’s been around since looooooong before “Goof Troop.” Of course, we’re talking about sweet Goofy, who’s more than just a dog – he’s a legit Disney maniac, but one that audiences love. First of all, there’s that voice, as well as his unique manner of speech. Sure, he may not the brightest bulb in the box, but Goofy is undoubtedly a great character and an even greater dad. And as a wacky anthropomorphic animal, Goofy is the ideal canine to lead any Disney adventure.
