The 10 Best Movie Dogs of All Time

Who’s the best dog ever? Well, obviously, it’s your dog. Your dog is the best dog in the entire world. Everybody knows that. But besides your dog, who tops the list? What about the best onscreen pup?

In honor of Sunday’s 80th anniversary of “The Wizard of Oz” (because Toto, obviously) and Monday’s National Dog Day (a VERY important holiday in our households), we pondered the eternal question: Which movie dog is our very favorite?

Settle in on the couch with your furry partner in crime and enjoy our list of the all-time best boys and girls in cinematic history.

1. Dug from ‘Up’

Dug is the best movie dog because Dug is basically your dog. At least, that’s what it felt like when Pixar put voice to all the little quirks of your best friend. “I hid under your porch because I love you” and “Squirrel!” really feel like sentiments your dog thinks and that’s why you love him/her.

2. Marley from ‘Marley & Me’

Marley (sob) is great (sob). He’s cute (sob) and loyal (sob) and we miss him (sob) very much.

3. Beethoven from ‘Beethoven’

The perfect balance of adorable and mischievous, the St. Bernard helped a family love each other.

4. Buddy from ‘Air Bud’

He can play basketball. Buddy does not need more to make him great. You hear that, all you sequels where he played football and whatnot? Basketball was enough.

5. Hercules, aka The Beast from ‘The Sandlot’
