These Are Literally the Top Dogs in Entertainment

Everybody loves Dug

With the dog days of summer upon us, and with the help of E-Poll, we've put together a list of the top dogs in entertainment. The research firm asked kids and adults across the U.S. about their favorite canine characters. Dug, from the movie Up, was top dog, while iconic Peanuts character Snoopy and that scrappiest of pups, Scooby-Doo, traded off for the second spot, depending on age group. The rankings are the percentage of consumers who found each pup "appealing":
