Why would anyone give their pets tough dog names? Because their canine companion is really tough.
Or just to feel good.
Another reason to give your pet a tough name is because of its temperament.
The great thing about dogs is that they come in many sizes, colors and temperament. As a result, the many dog breeds share names. This is why some good dog names are very popular, such as Max, Bella (a popular B dog name), Sam and Simba (an African, Swahili dog name that means “Lion”).
People say that it’s the size of the fight in a dog and not the physical size of a dog that matters.
But sometimes size and shape do come in handy.
A good example is the huge Tibetan Mastiff that relies on size to scare away predators.
Some small dogs, such as the tiny and bossy Chihuahua, can be really bold and aggressive. And they love biting. Jaws or Chewy (a popular C dog name) would be a good fit for such a dog, plus the tough name would serve as a reminder (and warning) that the dog loves to bite! Or just call her Diva.
Jack Russell terriers were bred to hunt. Consequently, a really tough dog name for a Jack Russell can be Hunter, Killer or Savage. Shaggy/ Fluffy is a good and tough sounding dog name for dogs who have a lot of hair, such as the fluffy Bichon Frise and the shedding Shiba Inu.
Adonis is a great dog name that starts with A for cute dogs of any size.
