Definitive Ranking Of 25 Disney Dogs From Cute To Cutest
When it comes to dogs, Disney has something for everyone. Like your dogs tall and anthropomorphic? Goofy is for you. Maybe you like your dogs to be, well, regular dogs? Try Pluto. Do you like your dogs to be something in between? How about Bolt? Tramp? Or literally any of the Dalmatians?
We're here to bring you all of those dogs and to rank them, from least wow-worthy to most iconically perfect. Let's dig in.
25. Roscoe & DeSoto from Oliver & Company
These guys still give us nightmares, TBH. Last place.
24. Chief from The Fox and the Hound
Oh Chief, you complicated soul. We know there is more to you than your gruffness, but boy is it a lot of gruffness.
23. Bruno from Cinderella
Bruno is about as dog as a dog gets — and that's a good thing.
22. Nana from Peter Pan
Nana loves her people kids and we can't help but ~feel~ for her when they're taken off to Neverland.
Perdita is probably the ultimate mom hero. She is a badass with 101 kids, amirite? Yes, totally.
20. Alpha from Up
Oh Alpha. So serious. So scary. But so good at what you do. Respect.
19. Georgette from Oliver & Company
snooty sophisticated Georgette gets a bad rap, but she's really just misunderstood.
18. Copper from The Fox & the Hound
Oh Copper, we love you. Your friendship with Tod was beautiful and complicated and real and, sorry, crying a little now.
17. The Dalmatian pups from 101 Dalmatians
Can we adopt all of you please? What? Mom says no? Life is NOT FAIR.
16. Roxanne from A Goofy Movie
Roxanne is cool, and beautiful, and legitimately nice. You wanted to date her, befriend her, or be her, admit it.
15. Pongo from 101 Dalmatians
When it comes to the 101 Dalmatians, Pongo represents the whole family. He's our dog hero, dog narrator, and, for many of us, first dream pet.
14. Lady and the Tramp
We have to count these two as one because can you really have one without the other? Answer: No, not without destroying the source of all love in the universe.
13. Percy from Pocahontas
You will never be as pampered and luxurious as Percy from Pocahontas. Yes, his owner was not a great guy, but Percy is pure hilarity.
12. Dodger from Olivers & Company
If this were a list of the coolest dogs of all time, ranked, Dodger would be a strong contender for the No. 1 slot. This pup is legitimately more hip that you'll ever be.
11. Little Brother from Mulan
Little Brother is the carefree dog best friend a girl needs before she goes undercover into the army to fight one of history's biggest bad guys. HUGS AND KISSES, Little Brother.
10. Sparky from Frankenweenie
Sparky is here to show us that nothing — not even death — can break the bond of a boy and his dog. Of course, we already knew that, right?
9. Bolt from Bolt
Bolt embodies all of the adventure we want from a dog on a journey, and he's ridiculously cute to boot.
8. Slinky Dog from Toy Story
Like a little dry sarcasm with your animated dog? Slinky dog might only be a toy, but he understands your struggle.
7. Powerline from A Goofy Movie
Powerline is one of the characters from cartoons we wish could exist in real life. We'd buy tickets to EVERY TOUR and give him ALL THE GRAMMYS.
6. Sultan from Beauty and the Beast
Sometimes the best dogs aren't really dogs, they're just things that act like dogs. And sometimes, the things that act like dogs are actually dogs under an enchantment. Sultan from Beauty and the Beast is easily the nicest/best enchanted object in the Beast's castle (sorry, Chip).
5. Max from The Little Mermaid
Eric is okay. Sure, he's hot, but he's a little boring. His lovably-adorable dog, Max, is the real reason anyone wants to approach him on a beach and strike up a conversation (well, okay, maybe not literally, if you've sold your voice to a sea witch, but you know what we mean).
4. Max Goof
Another Max on the list: Max Goof is the direct descendant of Disney dog royalty and the inappropriate crush of '90s girls everywhere. You do stand out above the crowd, Max. You do.
Mickey's best friend has to hold a special place in the hearts of Disney dog lovers — and that place is a well-deserved No. 3.
2. Dug from Up
Maybe no dog in all of cinematic history better captures the glorious reality of the dog spirit more than Dug from up. "I HAVE JUST MET YOU AND I LOVE YOU." Yes, Dug, and that is why dogs are man's (and woman's) best friend.
When it comes to Disney's top dog, could anyone but Goofy really take the title? A classic is a classic for a reason.
