Dallas Dog Names in Pop Culture
The first Dallas we'd like to share is a young, mixed-breed dog. While little is known about Dallas' early life, his foster family tells all about the things Dallas enjoys. Dallas is a high-energy dog (which fits in well with the people of Dallas, who are known to be rather active as well). He loves to be outdoors, and he loves to swim. He can be somewhat shy, however. He knows many tricks beyond "sit" and "stay." He was trained to come to his previous owners with a dog whistle as well. Although we can't be sure why Dallas was surrendered to the All Breed Rescue in South Burlington, he is looking for a forever home that can accommodate his energy level.
The second Dallas to share can also be found via Facebook. This Dallas the Dog is an older Golden Retriever mix hailing from Plymouth, Michigan. He tells anyone viewing his page that "Every dog has its day . . .and this one is mine!" Dallas has a love for life that makes him a pleasant dog to be around. He enjoys boating with his owner, and he never passes up an opportunity for a good walk. Dallas can often be seen wearing headphones or sunglasses; he enjoys the attention wearing these items brings him.
Yet another doggy Internet sensation is Dallas the Doggie, who can be followed via Twitter. Dallas the Doggie is a Boxer mix. He is often very laid-back, and he is often pictured "chilling out." Dallas the Doggie makes the best of life with what he has. He can be seen playing with empty toilet paper rolls as opposed to actual dog toys. He enjoys invading his pet mom's bed (he claims it is much more comfortable than his own!). He has a "doggy brother" known as Dirk the Doggie, and the two enjoy playing together. They can be spotted swimming together or taking a stroll with their pet mom.
Dallas Dog Name Considerations
Just like everything else in Texas, size matters! The adage "Everything is Bigger in Texas" comes to mind. Big homes, big ranches, big vehicles - all of these things are often commonplace in Dallas, Texas. Considering this, some of the larger breeds might find a Dallas dog name appropriate. Some of the largest dog breeds are the Great Dane, all varieties of Mastiffs, and the Saint Bernard.
By contrast, many Dallas natives enjoy small dogs that can be fretted over; such as a Yorkie or a Maltese. Designer dogs such as the Maltipoo also fit into this category. Names such as Little Bit or Daisy are fitting of this popular type of dog.
Some researchers have found that most of the names of dogs around the Dallas-Fort Worth area reflect the interests of the citizens therein. This means that names relating to local sports figures (and some celebrities in general) and generally sports-related names are quite popular. Of course, the Dallas Cowboys is the local NFL football team. Names such as Jerry, Zeke, or Dak are popular Dallas-area names. These names also fit any breed of dog.
Finally, some fans of the once-popular night-time soap opera Dallas may choose a name that reflects a love of the show. For a mischievous dog, the name J.R. might just be appropriate. Whatever breed of pup you have, a name that is Dallas-inspired will make him or her stand out from the rest!
