Brian Griffin was one of the main characters in the American animated TV sit-com, Family Guy.

He was the pet dog of the family, the Griffins. Although he showed many human characteristics (he could walk upright, drink, smoke, and speak English) he still showed many traits associated with dogs, such as fetching a ball, fearing the vacuum cleaner and barking at squirrels.

He was the only Family Guy character to have appeared in every single episode of the series. In a 2004 interview, Seth MacFarlane (the show's creator) revealed the Brian is his favorite character.[2]

In the twelfth season episode, "Life of Brian", he gets hit by a car and dies later at the veterinarian. Before he died, he thanked the Griffins for giving him a wonderful life and that he loves them all.[3] He was soon resurrected in the Christmas special "Christmas Guy".[4]
