Cartoon Dogs Revealed: The Sequel!

The Inside Scoop on Cartoon Dogs

A few years back, just after launching Urban Dog, I shared my love for animation and comics in a post called Guess What Breeds These Cartoon Dogs Are. It has proven to be one of my most popular stories.

You are watching: What kind of dog is odie from garfield

 It’s high time for a sequel! I’m going to shift gears a bit, instead of animation, we’ll take a look at a gallery of dogs from comic strips and comic books. Once again, the challenge is to try to guess what each dog’s breed is.

What Kind of Dog is Odie?

We’re going to start with the slobbery mess known as Odie from the Garfield comic strip. Odie was first introduced to the strip in 1978. He was originally called Spot, but cartoonist Jim Davis later changed his name to Odie. I think you’ll be very surprised when you find out what type of dog Odie is.

Answer: Apparently Odie’s a Dachshund / Beagle mix. (Garfield says his breed is “pure clown.”)

What Kind of Dog is Krypto, the Super-Dog?

Next up is Krypto, the Super-Dog from the Superman family of comic books, published by DC Comics. Krypto is the Kryptonian version of the Soviet Cosmonaut dog, Laika, but unlike his Communist counterpart he wasn’t doomed to an early death in space. Krypto arrived on Earth shortly after the baby Kal-El (the future Superman,) eventually becoming the Man of Steel’s best friend. He is part of a whole menagerie of super pets, including Streaky the Super-Cat, Beppo the Super-Monkey, and Comet the Super-Horse.

Answer: Recently there was an updated, more ferocious version of Krypto. He looked a lot like an extremely large, monster Siberian Husky or Malamute.

“Klassic Krypto,” however, the space pooch most people are familiar with, has alternated in appearance between an American Staffordshire Terrier and a (spot-free) Dalmatian.

I’m going to settle on Kryptonian Staffordshire Terrier as his breed.

Answer: Ace is a probably a German Shepherd Dog (or maybe a Belgian Malinois?)

There’s a new dog living in Wayne Manor these days. His name is Titus and he belongs to Damian Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s son, AKA Robin. (What? You didn’t know Batman had a kid? Keep up with the times, people!)

What kind of dog is Titus?

Answer: Titus is a Great Dane.

Damian also has a cat named Alfred (after the Wayne Manor butler) and a cow named, appropriately enough, Bat-Cow.

For kicks, here’s a picture of Bat-Cow (take a close look at the markings across his eyes.)

This is Pizza Dog, AKA Lucky, AKA Arrow, from the Marvel comic Hawkeye. Yes, this one’s VERY obscure, but he’s one of my personal favorites.
