It's an animated/live-action short that came out YEARS ago. It's by (or rather now owned by) a company called "The Embassy: Visual Effects".

People need to research before speaking!

Your second link is a film called "Tetra Vaal" by neills Blomkamp (the producer of "District 9"), it was one of his early short films and is what brought him to the attention of Peter Jackson.

You are partially correct. But you are thinking of EATR, the robot designed by RTI. It is fuelled by biomass, but thankfully vegetable matter - not meat

The 'Big Dog' looks like something from the movie Patlabor, but the second vid is an excert from a Neil Blompkamp (District 9) short, saw it a few months back.
I knew it !! I knew I'd seen it before. Indeed, and it also has similar footage from district 9.
