Billy the Pup is a character from the 2000 AD strip Meltdown Man. He is an intelligent talking humanoid dog, born in a future Earth where genetically engineered animals, or Yujees, are exploited by humans. Billy was employed by the villainous human overlord Leeshar to track down Nick Stone, a human who had arrived in this future Earth from the past after a nuclear accident, because Stone was trying to encourage the Yujees to rebel against Leeshar.
Stone's ally Gruff the wolfman saved Billy's life and eventually ended up persuading him to join the revolution.
