Officer Jenny's Growlithe (Japanese: ジュンサーのガーディ Junsar's Gardie) is a Pokémon owned by many Officer Jenny in the Pokémon anime prior to the Best Wishes series.


Officer Jenny's Growlithe in their first appearance in the anime

Growlithe first appeared in The Case of the K-9 Caper!. In that episode, Ash and his friends met up with an Officer Jenny who trained Growlithe to act as police dogs. In this episode, the many Growlithe helped fend off Team Rocket. A Growlithe owned by an Officer Jenny was also seen in The Fourth Round Rumble using a Flamethrower attack to shoot down Team Rocket's Meowth Balloon. In fact, most of Officer Jenny's Growlithe have been used in crime solving and serve as police dogs throughout much of the Pokémon world.

In Don't Touch That 'dile, Jenny's Growlithe was used to help locate a Totodile that was stolen by Team Rocket. One was also used to locate Ash's missing Egg in An EGG-sighting Adventure!.

In A Poached Ego!, an Officer Jenny's Growlithe was used to help catch the Pokémon poacher, Rico. Growlithe also appeared in the episode The Spheal of Approval. In The Ribbon Cup Caper, Officer Jenny's Growlithe is used once again to stop Team Rocket from stealing the Ribbon Cup.

In All Dressed Up with Somewhere to Go!, an Officer Jenny wore a Growlithe hat, both as a reference to her Pokémon and to follow the cosplaying theme; Jenny's Growlithe also appears in the episode. Another Growlithe appeared in Pokémon Ranger and the Kidnapped Riolu! (Part 2), as well as Beating the Bustle and Hustle!.

Although Growlithe remains the "signature Pokémon" of most Officer Jennys of the Japan-centric regions, they will sometimes use different Pokémon. The Officer Jenny in Mutiny in the Bounty! used Growlithe's evolved form, Arcanine. In some parts of the Pokémon world, police forces will have special Pokémon teams, such as Spinarak in Spinarak Attack.

The Officer Jennys of Unova do not use Growlithe, as they are not generally found in that region. Its counterpart in that region appears to be Herdier, another dog-like Pokémon.
