Smart, loyal, and loving — dogs capture our hearts and attention like few other living creatures. In celebration of National Dog Day on Monday, August 26, we bring you 15 of the most famous dogs in history.
Many of them are White House dogs, made famous by their politically powerful owners. Some are movie and television stars. But some are famous in their own right for acts of heroism, faithfulness, and devotion.
Remember, these are all real dogs, not fictional characters, which makes them all the more awesome. Click the arrows to scroll through, and then go give your own pooch a good snuggle.
