Question 1 of 10
1. My first call led me to the US state of Kansas, but then I found out that the dog wasn't in Kansas anymore. Annoyed, I used my dog detector and found him in a field near a yellow brick road.

Which canine did I just find?
Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. I had heard reports that this next dog was highly intelligent, so I was puzzled as to why he had run away from his owner. Nevertheless, I searched far and wide and found him hiding in a cardboard box, watching a suspicious-looking penguin. His owner was extremely grateful, saying something about a new pair of trousers making his dog a bit uneasy.

Which dog from the small screen have I rescued?
Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. My third canine call was for a St. Bernard named after a composer. Finding him wasn't hard, but trying to catch him...let's just say I'm not as young as I used to be!

Which movie pooch did I (eventually) rescue?
Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. The next call was quite strange. The man on the other end of the phone said something about a robot dog and travelling through the time vortex before he hung up with a strange whirring sound. I was very confused, but nevertheless went about my search for this mysterious man's dog.

Which dog was I after this time, first appearing on British television in 1977?
Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. Heading through a small Texan town on my way to find my fifth dog, I was surprised at how many people loved it. I was told that this mixed-breed dog ran off after two children who were kidnapped.

Hmm, which pup might I be after this time?
Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. I assume this next dog ran way because it couldn't stand to live in its neighbourhood any longer! Well, I would too if I lived with a dim-witted man and an insane baby, and next door to a sex addict who says "Giggity" too much.

Which TV canine needs returning this time?
Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. My next call saw me crossing the countryside in search of a pug who had become separated from his best friend, a cat called Milo. I found the puppy not far from where I found Milo, and the two were very happy.

Which star of the silver screen did I rescue?
Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. The eighth dog to rescue was owned by the father of a radio psychiatrist in Seattle. It turned out that this large Russell Terrier was just hiding in a cupboard, which came as a huge relief for his owner, Martin.

What is the name of this misplaced pooch?
Hint


Question 9 of 10
9. Arguably the most heroic of all the dogs I've heard of, I still don't understand how this one managed to get lost. I heard that this collie had been sold to a Duke, but escaped and was trying to find her way back home.

Which canine star was to be rescued?
Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. The tenth and final dog that required my efforts as a dog warden was owned by possibly the most dysfunctional family I have ever come across. I tracked it all over the town, until I eventually caught it and returned it to its home at 742 Evergreen Terrace. The little spiky-haired boy of the family seemed very grateful.

Which dog was the last one for me to rescue?
Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts

Answer: Toto

Toto is the canine star of "The Wizard of Oz", being portrayed on screen by a Cairn Terrier called Terry. At the tiny age of 5, Terry had appeared in a number of films before starting in "The Wizard of Oz". Terry was actually paid more than some of the actors who played Munchkins in the film. Now that's a pampered pooch!
2. I had heard reports that this next dog was highly intelligent, so I was puzzled as to why he had run away from his owner. Nevertheless, I searched far and wide and found him hiding in a cardboard box, watching a suspicious-looking penguin.

Answer: Gromit

The canine star of the British claymation phenomenon "Wallace and Gromit", Gromit is the faithful companion of the inventor Wallace.

3. My third canine call was for a St. Bernard named after a composer. Finding him wasn't hard, but trying to catch him...let's just say I'm not as young as I used to be! Which movie pooch did I (eventually) rescue?

Beethoven obviously survives the film's leaps and bounds and appears in several sequels.
