Anime/cartoon about a boy and a stone dog. The dog was a stone statue who spoke without opening his mouth. There was some kind of magician or just man in a hat in the anime, if I'm not mistaken. The strangest thing is that I clearly remember that the anime was called "Stone Dog", but there is no information on the Internet. I hope this isn't my hallucination.

I'm sorry for my English..

    Hi, welcome to SF&F! Your English is fine, BTW, I wouldn't have guessed it's not your first language. When did you see this? Where? (What country, and what medium?) Did the dog move at all?

  • There's a dog named "Chalk" in Dr. Stone -- but it's flesh and alive, and AFAIK doesn't talk.

Might it be Gargoyle of Yoshinaga House?

Gargoyle of Yoshinaga House (吉永さん家のガーゴイル, Yoshinaga-san Chi no Gargoyle) is a Japanese light novel series written by Sennendou Taguchi, following Kazumi Yoshinaga and his normal junior high school life with younger sister Futaba Yoshinaga, who, in a lottery, won a prize of a wolf-like gargoyle nicknamed "Gar-kun".

It appears that, in the anime, indeed the "dog" speaks without moving its mouth.

The man in the hat might be Kaitou Hyakushiki, a thief in the series.

Found by searching for anime boy "dog statue", which led me to this Reddit query.
