We just adopted a puppy from the Humane Society whose entire litter was being fostered by one woman. It turns out she posters hundred of puppies each year. We asked her how she comes up with names for all of these puppies and she told us she chooses categories. She recently had a little of Dachshund mixes and named them all after cheese. One was Gouda, another one Havarti, etc. Our pup's name is Harlow. She is named after the 1920's Hollywood starlet Jean Harlow. All of the puppies were named after classic Hollywood glam movie stars, Grant, Gable, Harlow, etc. etc. I thought that was a really clever way of doing it. When my black lab was a puppy we couldn't find a name that would stick for over a month. We would test a few names but none suited him. Once we discovered his amazing ability to find any morsel of food in the house, get to it even if it was much too high, or stop at nothing to get it, and then lie on his back, belly up after eating it, we decided Belly was a good name, based on personality. It may take a while, but you'll find the perfect name! There are also websites, or you can search google for pet names to find a few to test out.

Welcome to Zootoo! I just went and looked at your puppy's very cute photos. He has a bunch of colors mixed and reminded me of a favorite candy bar. How about 'Snickers'?

Wait a bit and see how he acts, or sometimes if you just keep looking at him with your mind totally cleared, it can just come to you. That's how I ended up with Daggett, Sascha, Zyra, And Kaya
