Can you guys tell me a good name for a male dog since I'm not creative at all.

I'm thinking about Mufasa. I'm getting either a shitzu or however you spell them and/or a Labrador Retriever puppy.

Reuben. It's the name of my future firstborn, but I'll let you call your dog it.

Our dog's named Axel, I like that. The name doesn't really fit to a Shitzu, but maybe for the labrador.

I know, but you should see the Labrador we want to buy. It sleeps on it's side, sticking it's head out like a Lion.

i knew a shih tzu named Missy. she was a sweetie pie. <3

if i had a shih tzu, i'd name it Waffles.

or Hamilton.

or Chompers.

it's probably for the best that i'm not getting another dog for a while...

One of my cats is named Waffles Jr. after a friend's pet fish Waffles.

My dogs have the following names:

Snoopy (deceased, RIP)
Lucy
Mallorie
Princess
Pisswilly (shortened to Willy when we have company)

I also used to have a cat named Mr. Tubby.

Snoopy and Lucy are both beagles, hence the Peanuts names.

I think you should decide about the name after you get the puppy. The way he acts, looks like will help you to find the real name for it.

I generally don't name my pets so I call them "dog", "white cat", "parrot" until someone else names them. I will do the same thing if I ever have children one day.

I agree with killer_queen. You probably want to name your pet along the lines of his appearance, personality, habits, hijinks, etc. Also, try to be at least semi-creative with the name, try not to make it way too common. Just use your judgement what you think is right. I don't think you should ask for names, I think that you should pick a name for yourself that comes from the heart.

I think that makes the most sense.

But I suggest Mars anyway. Doesnt really fit for a shitzu...

I don't like the cutesy dog names, unless they're given to the big, ugly, or big/ugly dogs. And the tough, intimidating dog names are only cool when they're given to tiny, cute dogs. No dog should ever be burdened with an actual person's name, under any circumstances. The whole tendency to anthropomorphize one's pets I find really creepy. All this does is a disservice to the animals in question. It is especially NEVER cool to name your pet after an actual person, unless that person is Hitler. But fictional characters are alright. Has anybody ever named a pet after a racial slur? That might be funny. The ideal pet name should be memorable, unexpected and/or whimsical. And fun to yell while saying "No!", cause you'll be doing a lot of that. I suggest Spot.

About 40 years ago it was common practise to name any black horse/dog "Nigger". My grandparents had about 4 niggers.

I'd name a small tiny dog something like Butch Nobstrong.

Or dexter, of course :cool:

In my experience it doesn't matter what you name your pets, because in the end they're usually referred to as "the dog / doggy / that blasted animal" anyway by unsupportive family members.

So I reckon you should name it Dog / Doggy / Doggins and save yourself the effort, and the dog any confusion.

Unless you happen to choose a name that really sticks.

For any Brits, or 1970s tennis fans, I'd call my dog "dog" in russian (собака) or as it's pronounced "Sue Barker" (well -ish).

Ha, the beautiful thing is that here in England there is a slightly famous woman called Sue Barker, so I always find it midly amusing to relate her to a dog, I live a sad life...

My friend's black cat is named Aunt Jemima. But that's not exactly what you were going for.

I had 2 male cats named "Penis" and "Testicle". Well, that's what I called them. Everyone else called them "Cat 1" and "Other Cat".
