When choosing a name, one has to consider how it sounds when being announced in the vet’s office or calling your dog at the dog park. For example, if the receptionist says, “Come on back. We are ready for Goofball now.” Or you yelling out the back door “Sweetlips, come Sweetlips.” may be embarrassing.
We hope you enjoyed this list of unusual dog names.
