The breed to which your dog belongs is a very important factor in choosing its name. But one thing must be made clear, dogs that do not have a breed are as beautiful as any other and it is worth considering adopting when you want to bring a new pet to the home. When choosing the best name for your dog, you should take into account his character but, of course, also his physical appearance. Surely you have ever wondered what name suits your dog according to its breed from him. Here are some ideas for large breed dogs, medium breed dogs, and small breed dogs.

The best names for each breed of dog

  • If you have a small Beagle, the names that most suit him due to his physical appearance are Spots or Dot. Its olfactory capacity is very high, so you could also call it Nose.
  • Maltese Bichon. Dogs of this breed are very social and enjoy being around humans, so a good name might be Friend. Because of his funny hair, you could call him Fluffy.
  • Thor, Sasha, Kaiser… we can think of many names that convey the strength and intensity that this breed of dog usually has. Find a name for him that shows that he is a dog with personality.
  • Although there are several types of Bulldog, they all have certain physical traits in common. They are very funny dogs, which is why a name like Curro, Tango, Gordo/an or Luna suits them a lot.
  • bull terrier. Dogs of this breed are very special so you have to find a name that reflects it, such as Unique or King/Queen.
  • Leo Messi has a poodle named Toby. You can also put others like Curls or Soft because of his fur. Other more original names for dogs are: Anabel or Benito.
