Let's face it: Regardless of how much we love our dogs, sometimes they can get dirty, especially after hikes or other outdoor activities.

With a high likelihood of muddy seats and floors, a perfect solution is the 4-liter six-cylinder 2013 Toyota FJ Cruiser, which comes standard with water-resistant seating surfaces. That will come in handy if you use your FJ Cruiser to cross a creek -- which, by the way, you can, thanks to its elevated air intake and protected electrical components.

The FJ Cruiser also comes standard with a ton of safety features, such as the Star Safety System, which is a suite of six safety features, including vehicle stability control, traction control, multiterrain four-wheel anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and Smart Stop Technology. You won't have to worry about your dog getting hurt from a side collision, either. The FJ Cruiser is equipped with six air bags and side-impact door beams.
