Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts


Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

From Snoopy to Scooby Doo, we find out how similar the cartoon dogs are to their real life counterparts!

Pluto the Bloodhound Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life CounterpartsSource: Puddy Pooch

Expectation: Part of the Sensational Six, Pluto is Mickey Mouse’s pet and one of the most popular Disney Characters to grace the big screen. He is jolly and curious, though can be over-possessive over Mickey. Despite his trouble-making tendencies, Pluto’s goofy personality makes it hard for anyone to be mad at him for long.

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Reality: Just like Pluto, Bloodhounds are very friendly and enjoy spending time with their owners. They are prone to separation anxiety, so don’t leave your hounds at the pet boarding facilities for too long!

Snoopy the Beagle Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life CounterpartsSource: Peanuts

Expectation: In the comic strip Peanuts, Snoopy plays Charlie Brown’s whimsical and optimistic pet beagle. His fondness for life can be seen through his signature ‘happy dance’ that annoys his more cynical friends. Like most dogs, Snoopy doesn’t really like cats and can be quite unpleasant to them.

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Reality: The Beagle in real life has a distinctive Snoopy-esque cheeriness – it is extremely friendly and loves interacting with people. This makes it the perfect furkid for first-time pawrents. Funnily enough, Beagles actually do get along well with cats thanks to their mild temperament.

Scooby Doo the Great Dane Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life CounterpartsSource: Scooby Doo

Breed: Great Dane

Expectation: Scooby Doo, best friend of Shaggy has a big appetite and is always hungry. While he may be timid, his loyalty towards Shaggy and friends often compels him to be brave to protect those he loves.

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Reality: Like most of us as well as Scooby Doo, Danes love food and require massive meal portions. They have a childlike sense of wonder, which makes them playful but also rather reckless – which essentially makes them oversized puppies.

Pongo and Perdita from 101 Dalmatians Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life CounterpartsSource: Disney Clip

Expectation: Perdita is poised and polite, while Pongo is the silly doggo. Naturally, Perdita is a bit anxious, whereas Pongo has a happy-go-lucky personality. Both show a strong dedication towards their puppies.

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Reality: The Dalmatians are one highly adaptable breed and can be aggressive guard dogs as well as obedient show-dogs at pet events in Singapore. Most importantly, they love humans and are full of energy, making them excellent additions to the household (though they are, unfortunately, not HDB approved).

Toto the Cairn Terrier from the Wizard of Oz

Expectation: Toto is one timid doggo, as evident when he hid under the bed first thing during a cyclone. Even so, he is fiercely loyal and very protective over Dorothy, following her all through her journey to Oz.

Expectation VS. Reality: Cartoon Dogs and their Real Life Counterparts

Reality: A regular on pet magazines in Singapore, Terriers are a common sight in Singapore. Originally bred as working dogs for farmers, Cairn Terriers are hardy and courageous. Like Toto, it is also intelligent and friendly, making the Cairn Terrier a wonderful best friend for humans.
