Getting a fawn boxer puppy, male with 3 white paws and some white on his chest. Black face. Runt of the litter. Definitely hyper. Chews.

We need a name. Ideas?


Favorite so far, no particular order:

Cassius - wife doesn't like it though
Trey
Frank
Cameron
Otis
Little Mac
Tuka

I like old man names for dogs, especially big dogs.

I named my dog Clyde.

I also like Earl, Frank, Bud, or Hank. I also thought about Dixie.

I had a Buddy. Kind of close to Bud. Frank. Frank the Tank. Like that one.

I had a friend with a similar looking boxer, and he named him Trey because of the 3 white paws.

If you are looking to go panther related...Stewie, Willie, Charlie, Jonnie, are just some of the ones I thought of. Don't name him Jeff though. You'd probably end up with a lot of vet bills.

Cassius


I suggested that to my wife last night. She had no idea who Cassius Clay was. :banghead:

Name him sh*thead after the dog on The Jerk.


I do have a 3 year old daughter. While some might find it funny a lil girl calling for her dog "Sh*thead, come here Sh*thead" I don't think it's going to work.

You'd probably end up with a lot of vet bills.


This will be 4th boxer I've had, actually 1st three were while I lived with my parents. But I still knew to expect some health problems when my wife and I chose a boxer. They're just fun dogs.

We never name a pet until its lived with us for a little bit. After a few days a short list of names based on looks and personality comes together and by the end of the second week we have a choice made.

I was thinking this too originally but the breeder's agreed to keep the puppy an extra 2 weeks since we were not able to actually pick the dog up on the 27th when the rest of the litter was being taken. They asked us if we had a name for him yet so they can start calling him by his future name.

We're watching mother-in-law's dog while they go on vacation and don't want their dog injuring the puppy. Something we agreed to do before deciding on getting a dog ourselves.

That's where I was going with Cassius when I mentioned it to the wife yesterday. She wasn't fond of it.
