Black and White Dog Name Considerations

If you are about to become a proud owner of a Great Dane, bear in mind that although this grand breed may seem like an intimidating (and huge) version of a Dalmatian, they possess an unprecedented amount of poise and patience, so much so that they are known as the ‘Gentle Giants’ and ‘Apollos’ of the dog world. Therefore, a great name for your Great Dane could be Apollo or Zeus, to honor both their grandiose size and their mien.

Another famous black and white breed is the Border Collie, who is an immediate association to Scottish Highlands and herds of sheep. This breed, apart from his characteristic black and white pattern, is also rumored to be one of the most intelligent breeds. However, this doesn’t take away from their canine charm and restless spirit, but they are famed for their intelligence, obedience, capability, and energy.

A black and white dog list cannot be complete without mentioning the Dalmatian. The famous spotted fur coat is what first comes to mind when one thinks of this color pattern. You could stick with the classics such as Spot or Pongo, to honor the Disney animated movie, but if not, we offer you the list below.
