The dog.

Skippy is a dog owned by Sammy, a young Earth boy.

Skippy is trapped in Arnie's burning apartment building, and his owner blindly runs into the apartment, much to the emotional distress of Arnie and Mildred. Captain Troy enters the apartment, finding Sammy and rescuing Skippy in the process (1980: "The Night the Cylons Landed, Part II").
