Introduction

Many canine breeds such as the Italian Greyhound, the Saluki, Poodle, Bichon Frise, and Brussels Griffon are known for their grace. However, some dogs are not graceful. Many are even downright clumsy.  If you have a puppy with huge feet and who often trips then you might want to pick a name that denotes their awkward movements. Everyone loves a klutz. Even clowns in a circus are known for their funny and embarrassing antics. If your pup lacks grace, then choose an awkward name.

Awkward Dog Name Considerations

Many dog breeds are known for their awkward form and movement. The English Bulldog waddles when walking. The Dachshund is another funny breed of dog because of their odd body shape. They even have National Weiner Dog races because the crowd loves watching the long hotdog style pooch run and jump. There is just something endearing about their funny body and less than fluid movements.

If you are trying to pick a dog name for an awkward pooch then why not choose to name your dog after famous actors and comics like Chevy Chase, John Candy, James Belushi, and Jerry Lewis? All were known for their funny stunts and physical comedy. 

There is also a multitude of fictional characters that are known for making laugh people because of their awkward movements, such as Clark Griswold from the National Lampoon's Vacation movies. Mr. Bean is also known for his physical comedy. Ace Ventura, Pet Detective movies are also hilarious due to Jim Carrey and his unique physical comedy. 

Who doesn't love a clumsy puppy or older adopted dog?  Klutz, Clumsy, Dingbat, Lucy (after Lucille Ball from I Love Lucy), Ethel (Lucy's cohort and friend), or Kramer from Seinfeld fame are all excellent considerations.
