Remy from Ratatouille 

Who said all talking animals in film were cats and dogs?! In Ratatouille, Remy the rat decides to put his cooking skills to use to help Chef Linguini in one of Paris’ finest restaurants. While he may not be the typical, cuddly, household pet, we can’t help but root for him. After all, he is a culinary genius!

Dug from Up

Dug is the most lovable dog in movie history, with his playful personality and undying loyalty.
