The most obvious character that fits in my opinion is Lassie. Super intelligent for a dog, but objectively rather base human level. It's her wisdom, perception, and perseverance aka willpower that truly sets her apart.
Beware, poor communication skills. No offense intended. If offended, it just means that I failed my writing skill check.
