Dogs are animals that have had several different appearances in a wide variety of LEGO themes since 1976 and as recent as 2013.
Since they were debuted in the early 1900's, there has been a wide range of variations of the piece.
Details The earliest appearance of a dog was when the Wooden Toys were around and two wooden dogs were made. One was called Dog (Hund) and the other wood toy was called Terrier (Hund).
They also released a set called Wooden Pluto based of the Disney character, Pluto.
The earliest appearances of a dog as a plastic LEGO brick was in the DUPLO set 082 LEGOVILLE. Not much more than a white brick attached to a black brick and printed with a dog's face, dogs since then have taken much more detailed forms, ranging from the canine residents of Fabuland, like various buldogs and Dr. Dog, to the highly detailed DUPLO version of Disney's Pluto and the realistic animals seen in many City sets.
Currently there most recent variations have been in the City theme: a German Shepherd variation introduced in 2011, a Dalmatian variation introduced in 2013 and a Chihuahua released also in 2013. The Husky was introduced in summer 2014, and was included in the Arctic sets 60034, 60036 and 60062.
System Even before the standard dog was introduced, the 2001 Harry Potter set 4706 Forbidden Corridor had featured a multipart model of Fluffy, the enormous three-headed guard dog. The standard System dog first appeared in 2004.
Initially exclusive to the Harry Potter theme. When appearing with the Harry Potter theme it was representing Sirius Black. Eventually it appeared in the City line in 2006 and has featured in many sets, particularly as a police dog. It was solid dark grey then solid brown with concave eyes and no printing.
In 2011 it was replaced by a new, more detailed mould with longer triangular ears and printed eyes and nose. This mould comes in three colour variants so far. The earliest one was dark orange, then the nougat with black spot on its nose was introduced, which is supposed to resemble German Shepherd (Alsatian). In 2013 a new version - white with black printed spots, representing Dalmatian appeared in two sets of City theme.
In 2013 a new mould of a chihuahua appeared in 10'th series of Minifigures (theme) as a trendsetter's accessory. This dog is a one-stud brown figure in sitting position with large printed eyes and nose. It has distinctive pointy ears.
Another dog breed in System scale was introduced in 2014. The team of four huskies were included in three sets of Arctic, a subtheme of City theme. The new husky mould has similar proportions as Alsatian, but with more massive body, softer lines and distinctive curved tail. The single stud on the creatures' back allows harnessing the huskies to the sledge. This animal figure is available in light grey with darker saddle-shaped patch on the dog's back and neck, black eyes, eyebrows and nose. Because of the printing technique used, no two huskies are identically coloured.
Video gamesThe grey stone dog is a playable character in LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game as a guard dog. It is able to dig, and bites as a defense tactic.
The LEGO Movie When Octan Tower is first seen in the movie, a wolf using the same Dog mold can be seen howling to add an intimidating effect to Octan Tower to contradict Emmet's statement in the previous scene - how scary can someone's office be? The first Belville dog was introduced in sets in 1994, and joined the following year by a smaller puppy. Both were originally plain, but later sets would feature versions with printing. In 1998, Scala introduced new dogs and puppies that had even more detailed, multi-coloured printing patterns for different dog breeds.
DUPLO The first realistic DUPLO dog appeared in 1986 and resembled a black Scottish terrier. A new dog was introduced in 1998 and was available in either dark orange, or with dalmatian patterning. The most recent DUPLO dog appeared in 2007 and is available in tan, black or dalmatian variations.
Friends For this theme three different dog moulds were introduced so far. In 2012 a long-eared puppy called Scarlett was released as well as a puppy with raised ears, which comes in different colour variations. In 2013 a new poodle was released in two variations.
REAL DOG MEETS LEGO DOG This article proudly presented by WWW.ITV.COM
A Sprocker Spaniel was officially declared the UK's best pet when he came nose to nose with his perfect LEGO double at Legoland in Windsor. One-year-old Sully was voted the nation's top dog for helping a family deal with a life-changing tragedy and was nominated by 8-year-old Ella Harvey.
Sully was joined by his owners, The Harvey family, who credit their dog with bringing them closer together after dad, Gavin, lost both legs on a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The canine topped a nationwide search to find the country's best pet friend and Ella was overjoyed to see her puppy pal honoured with his very own LEGO model. Sully has helped the family to overcome dark times. Ella's mum, Kerry, said: "There's so much physically that we can't do as a family since Gavin was inured. But Sully helps us to bridge that activity gap." The playful spaniel took a keen interest in his LEGO double, which took a model maker 11 days to create from 6,255 individual bricks.

Woof! Woof! It's the Lego Dog Project!
Who doesn't want an adorable little Lego dog? Well here are 3 of them. The biggest dog is brown with a read collar. Making it was hard because it involved mainly scavenging for brown pieces that were being used on other models.
This dog also has a cool tennis ball accessory made of apple green bricks. He has a picture next to my real dog. The second dog is yellow with all sorts of details and a less basic design than the first (even though it is smaller). He has a 2 by 2 smooth plate nose and adorable little eyes.
Aww... Finally, the smallest dog has an extremely simple design, but simple doesn't mean ugly! He has 2 small ears. That completes the collection!

Lego westie from Cesar's dog food commercial This Lego westie by ccy_8086 is one of the most adorable creations I've seen. The multitude of slopes worked out really well as opposed to a traditional bricks and plates approach.
Have you hugged your fender today? These adorable little canines by Moritz are too cute for words. From now on, whenever I see these pieces actually used as fenders, I'll wonder why they crammed doggie heads in there.
Saturday Morning Pug Pugs. You may love them or not, but you can't deny - they are adorable in their own unique way. Marcos Bessa captures their quizzical look with shocking perfection.
Ay, chihuahua! We've spent quite a bit of time in the small dog area at the park lately with Josie and our new pug Ollie, who's doing his best to set himself apart from the distinguished life and career of the late, great Mr. Pugsly. I've seen more chihuahuas in the last few weeks than I'd seen for years before, so I can testify to the absolute accuracy of this wonderful pup by edulyoung from the perky ears and shiny little bug eyes to the tiny stick legs.

Bullseye the Target Dog Target commissioned this sculpture of their mascot, Bullseye for their corporate offices. The sculpture stands 5.5 feet tall, contains 39,800 LEGO pieces, and took about 2 months to create.
We spend an enormous amount of time on the design of the eyes in our animal and human sculptures. Stylistically, it is important to me that the expression of the face is true to the personality of the subject.
From a technical perspective, we need to determine how to get specular highlights, colors, and scale correct with a limited palette of off-the-shelf LEGO elements. Bullseye's pupils are a combination of radar dishes, smokey-clear colored domes, and many other parts. We even found an old desaturated pink LEGO piece that was perfect for the corners of his eyes.
The sculpture took about 7 weeks of full-time work to design and build by my assistants Geoffrey and Valerie.
The sculpture is built around a welded metal frame for rigidity during public display and transport. Each piece is glued, one by one, as it is added to the model. He's a happy pooch! : )
NETTO LEGO DOG This article proudly presented by WWW.TELEGRAPH CO.UK and By Andrew Trotman
Is this the best job in the world? Bright Bricks builds giant Netto dog from Lego - UK company Bright Bricks builds huge lego structures, and their latest is a two-metre-tall Netto dog.
Sainsbury's opens the first of its Netto-branded discount stores on Thursday, so bosses needed something from Netto's home country of Denmark to promote the event. Did they use bacon? A sound system from Bang & Olufsen? A pair of Ecco shoes? No, they agreed upon a 2 metre tall dog made entirely from yellow Lego bricks. So where do you go if you want a giant Lego dog? Bordon in Hampshire, apparently, and a company called Bright Bricks. The business, which was set up five years ago by Britain's only professional Lego builder Duncan Titmarsh, creates giant Lego structures for anyone who wants one.
Mr Titmarsh, along with company director Ed Diment and around 30 staff, have built 12-metre-tall Lego Christmas trees for St Pancras Station (which contained 600,000 bricks), a 1 metre-tall replica of the Cheesegrater skyscraper, a jet engine from a Boeing Dreamliner that contained moving parts, and a multicoloured oak tree that wraps around a concrete pillar at Hamad International Airport, in Doha, Qatar.
Sounds like Bright Bricks' bosses have the best jobs in the world. "I get that a lot," said Mr Diment. "It's not bad." But back to that Netto dog, which contains 82,750 Lego bricks and weighs 150 kilograms. It must have taken a long time to build. "It took about four weeks, with four people working on it. It's got a steel frame inside but we were so pushed for time that we started building it while the frame was being constructed. "Because Duncan is the only certified Lego professional in the UK [there are only 12 in the world], we can order the bricks in bulk. We can build anything that anyone wants."
If you are thinking there can't be much demand for giant Lego sculptures, you'd be wrong. Bright Bricks is currently working on 50 projects, including a Christmas tree for a client in Texas and a mystery project that will be unveiled in London overnight on November 26. "I'm not allowed to talk about that," said Mr Diment. He did reveal that business is booming to the extent that Bright Bricks is looking to build on its one workshop. "Turnover was about £600,000 in the last financial year and will likely top 1m this year," Mr Diment said. "We are looking to buy another unit to expand, so we will have two workshops. This one has boxes of Lego everywhere." Meanwhile, that giant Netto dog - the retailer declined to comment on how much it cost - is touring stores in Yorkshire, and is in Leeds on Thursday.
How do they move it around without it falling apart? - "We got a company to make us a custom-built trailer and bolted it to that," said Mr Diment. "We tried to make a cover for it for the journey up the M1 but found it was safer to tow it as it was." A 2 metre tall yellow Lego dog being driven up the M1? I would have loved to have seen that.
