Apologies to the very noble French bulldog, but we will now forever associate it with Zach Galifianakis’ bumbling “Due Date” character. Here’s a look at other iconic breeds that won over our hearts on the big screen:

The film:
‘The Wizard of Oz’ (1939)
The pup
: The cairn terrier became so synonymous with the film that Terry — the starring dog — had her name changed to “Toto” after its release.

The film:
‘The Adventures of Milo and Otis’ (1989)
The pup
: Before every woman on the Upper East Side was toting her pug to lunch, the trendy breed starred in this classic — and even shared the spotlight with a cat.

The film:
‘The Mask’ (1994)

The pup: Only a Jack Russell terrier has enough personality and natural show-boating tendencies to hold its own next to Jim Carrey. Plus, the breed looks surprisingly cute in a creepy green mask.

The film:
‘101 Dalmatians’ (1996)

The pup: So many children fell for these (professionally trained) puppies that, inevitably, animal shelters saw an increase in the breed — which isn’t exactly all fun and games off-camera. (See sidebar for the AKC’s statement regarding “Due Date.”)
