Introduced in Adventure Time

Dogs are a species in Adventure Time.


The dogs in this world for the most part have been shown to be a specific yellow- or orange-colored breed of bulldog and have many attributes akin to real dogs. They have increased senses such as sight and smell compared to humans and most have shorter life spans due to living in "dog years." In "The New Frontier" Jake says "I'll probably live another hundred years easy" suggesting that dogs with magical powers such as Jake have different life spans. Dogs have adapted to the circumstances of the world they now live in (or mutated from the Mushroom War) and have become anthropomorphic; gaining the means of speech as well as the usage of tools and weaponry.

Other dogs may have gained supernatural attributes. These include various magical powers such as being able to change their size and mass, as well as communicate with one another in dreams.


Though they appear to live in a society akin to many of the other creatures of this world, they seem to prefer being companions with other beings. The most notable dog is Jake, Finn's companion and adoptive brother.


Sometime before the series, dogs were at war for millennia with the Rainicorns for territory in the Crystal Dimension, as mentioned in the episode "Her Parents." Before the Great Mushroom War, dogs were domesticated by humans.
