Introduction

Most Disney movies incorporate a lesson into the framework of a family-friendly movie, and 1941's Dumbo is no different. Dumbo is born into a family of circus elephants, and he is different because of his ears. These elephant ears seem to be disproportionate for the size of such a small animal, and the sweet little elephant is given the name Dumbo. This is often used to pick on the young elephant; however, it is soon revealed that these larger than life ears give Dumbo the ability to fly - a trait his fellow circus animals would love to possess. Furthermore, Dumbo's best friend is a mouse, which goes against what many think of as the natural order (elephants are rumored to be scared of mice).

Dumbo Dog Name Considerations

What type of dog would be suited to a name inspired by the classic Disney film Dumbo? Dumbo is the story of an elephant - what could an elephant's story possibly have to do with a dog? First, one should remember that there are dog breeds associated with the circus. In particular, Poodles were trained  for decades to perform entertaining tricks for the circus audience. In fact, the grooming of the standard Poodle - the elaborate tufts of hair on their head and tail - goes back to their time as circus performers. While there are no Poodles with speaking parts in the Dumbo film, we can most certainly associate the breed with the circus; therefore, Poodles might be well-suited for a Dumbo-inspired name. 

Dumbo the elephant has very long ears. When considering dog breeds that might be suited to a Dumbo-inspired name, dogs with long, hanging ears come to mind. The Basset Hound is at the top of the list, as his long ears add to his sweet face. Other hounds belong on this list as well; the Bloodhound has long ears that hang down to his jaws. The Black and Tan Coonhound also sports long, hanging ears, as does the Beagle. One surprising addition to this list is the Cocker Spaniel, who often has ears that hang past the jaw.
