Hot Dog! New York’s Most PAWpular Names for Man’s Best Friend
When it comes time to add a furry friend to the family, many new pet owners often find themselves struggling to pin down that perfect name.
There are so many different breeds of dogs that it can be hard to find one that suits their physicality.
Whether they are a gentle giant like a Great Dane or a pip squeak like a Chihuahua, a name can drastically change one's perception of the animal. A Rottweiler with a name like Killer is going to be perceived a lot differently than a Corgi with the very same name. Some people even like to give their dogs human names like Kevin or Steve, while others prefer to name them after a favorite snack such as Oreo or Peanut. Regardless, owners should thoughtfully and carefully choose the moniker we give our pet since it will forever represent that little bundle of joy many people refer to as their first child.
