Cartoons:  Many pups achieved fame thru cartoons. Who hasn't heard of Scooby Doo? or Snoopy, the most legendary, and probably the richest Beagle on the planet?

Movies: Illustrious pups from the movies are everywhere. Benji is a popular star. Not to mention Lassie as well Old Yeller, which would be a great choice for a yellow Lab or a pooch that barks a lot.

Television: Canines love being on TV, so much so that you can’t seem to keep them off! There's Bullet from the old Roy Rodgers Show, and Eddie, who was made famous from the comedy Frasier.

Comics: Pups have also appeared in many comic strips thru out the years. Marmaduke would make an excellent choice for a large breed, and Snoopy’s fame also transcends from cartoons into comic strips.

Disney Dogs: Who doesn't love Disney? Not only do they make great theme parks, they’ve made many canines rich and famous. There’s Pluto, Goofy, the 101 Dalmatians which are 101 too many to list here, but not here...
