Puppy is the fifth and most recent album by British electronica group Fluke, first released on 18 August 2003. The album contains a variety of genres, spanning from house to ambient and even including a blues track, "Blue Sky".

The release of the album was significantly delayed by a change to the band's record label, switching from Virgin Records offshoot Circa to One Little Indian.

"Snapshot" was featured in Need for Speed: Underground while "Switch/Twitch" is featured in Need for Speed: Underground 2. "Another Kind of Blues" and "My Spine" were also featured in Total Club Manager 2004.

"Another Kind of Blues" is a 4:37 edit of previously released promotional single, Slap It (original length 10:19). Another version, renamed "Zion", was used for the underground rave scene in the 2003 film The Matrix Reloaded. Puppy's "Another Kind of Blues" is an entirely different song from the track of the same name included on the Xmas Demos.

The track "YKK" was used in the 2010 film The Experiment.

Four of the tracks on the album had previously been released in demo form on a Virgin Records promotional release from 2000 called Xmas Demos. The remaining tracks, "Liquid" and the original "Another Kind of Blues", did not make the final cut.
