Movies with Dogs–MORE Honorable Mentions

8September 2014

In my previous post a wrote about what I consider some of the Best & Worst Movies that have dogs in them.  Keep in mind this is my personal opinions on these movies.  Below are some movies not included in the list that I feel deserved an Honorable Mention.  These movies may not be among my top favorites, but are definitely worth a watch if you love dogs.

Movies with Dogs… Honorable Mentions:

Snow Dogs (2002)
IMDb Description:  “When a Miami dentist inherits a team of sled dogs, he’s got to learn the trade or lose his pack to a crusty mountain man.”
I remember that I have seen this movie, but honestly can’t remember that much about it.  That is one reason it did not make the original list.  From what I remember it is basically a slap-stick comedy with Cuba Gooding Jr. and a pack of snow dogs.  It has some laughs, but overall not super exciting.

The Fox and the Hound (1981)
IMDb Description:  “Two childhood friends find themselves forced to become enemies.”
I remember absolutely loving this movie as a child.  With fun adventures and just enough danger, this heart-warming film will give you many smiles.

K-9 (1989)

IMDb Description:  “To stop an elusive criminal, a maverick detective enlists the aid of a police dog who’s an unusually intelligent smart Alec.”
A buddy cop movie starring James Belushi.  Only his buddy cop isn’t an almost retired, cranky guy, it’s a beautiful German Shepherd police dog.  The movie over-all is just another 80s buddy-cop movie, but I think this dog makes it worth the watch.  You’ll have a few laughs, and if you’re anything like me, you will want a German Shepherd for your next dog.

The Adventures of Milo & Otis (1986)
IMDb Description:  “The adventures of a young cat and a dog as they find themselves accidentally separated and each swept into a hazardous trek.”
I remember enjoying this film as a young child…definitely family approved.  As an adult, it lacks the excitement that we crave these days.  Worth a watch.


Oliver and Company (1988)

IMDb Description:  “A lost and alone kitten joins a gang of dogs engaged in petty larceny in New York.”
I honestly don’t remember much about this movie except that I enjoyed it as a child.  Good family watch.

Benji (1974)

IMDb Description:  “A stray dog saves two kidnapped children.”
Benji is a dog with a heart of gold.  Helping everyone in need from other animals to humans.  A heart-warming story.
