Introduction

Those of us who have adopted a dog and welcomed them into our home, whether a puppy or full-grown, know the joy that a canine addition can bring. Tall or short, portly or sleek, each dog brings their own special magic and character. There are a few breeds that are considered to be dwarf breeds and are certainly adorable; they are the French and English Bulldogs, the Basset Hound, the Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis, Dandie Dinmont, Skye and Scottish Terriers, the Pug, and the dashing Dachshund. Dwarf-sized dogs are known to carry a lot of spunk as they prance about in their small frame, soon becoming rulers of their domain!. Have you adopted a dog short on height but big in personality? Read on for 60 of the top names for these little dynamos!

Dwarf Dog Name Considerations

Typically a keen little canine with an elongated body, the dwarf-sized dog has a lot to offer despite their low-set view on the world. They thrive on affection and will dish out plenty in return. Bestow a top-dog tag on your new addition after they have been in your home a couple of days and have had a chance to settle in. Within a few days, their character will shine through, and brightly! Consider Poco (Italian) or Niski (Polish) if you want to base the name on languages. Are you an art connoisseur? Picasso once had a Dachshund named Lump. Do you love all things royal? Consider Vulcan after Queen Elizabeth’s Dorgi, or Willow after her Corgi, the last one of the Queen’s famous Corgis to pass away. For those who love a play on words, choose Lilli, in reference to the word Lilliputian which means very small.
