Hotel for DogsLet's face it: there's a reason they call dog 'man's best friend.' The loyalty and affection is unparalleled in the animal kingdom - and it's a lot easier to train a dog than a goldfish. There are a lot of dogs in need of homes these days, and a number of movies that show the joy of rescuing a pet, like Hotel for Dogs, opening January 16th. In honor of the movie's positive message, we've put together a list of some of our favorite movies featuring top dogs (and the occasional cat).

From out of the Disney vault comes The Ugly Dachshund, the story of a Great Dane who thinks he's a wiener-dog. The poor gentle giant is constantly harassed by his doxie "sisters," and blamed for all their wrong-doings. Fortunately the ugly dachshund becomes a beautiful Dane and even takes home a few blue ribbons in the local dog show. For anyone who's ever felt like the underdog, this one's for you.
