Milan Dog Names in Pop Culture
Breeds originating in Italy are many. Varying greatly in size, appearance and purpose, they range from the powerful Cane Corso to the tiny Maltese. Popular in pop culture, the breeds of Italy present interesting canines to spotlight.
Italian Greyhounds are a beautiful breed. They are swift, majestic, and very graceful. If you like photography, especially dog photography, and if you like Italian Greyhounds, then these images are for you! The Kennel Club of 2018 has released photographs by the winners of Dog Photographer of the Year. This competition features several categories. Of course, the Italian Greyhound has been featured, as their beautiful aristocratic look is like no other. One entry of the contest really stood out. Ceylin, an Italian Greyhound puppy of only three months old was featured in gorgeous images taken by a photographer from Germany, Klaus Dyber. Klaus won the 'Puppy" category with his stunning photos of Ceylin. The close-up images showed the intricate detail of the Italian Greyhound and made the viewers wonder what she would be like as she grew older.
Maltese Dogs are also famous in Italy. These cute little dogs are quite popular with celebrities. One Maltese, Trouble, had a 12 million dollar trust fund! The owner was celebrity Leona Helmsley. When Leona passed away she left Trouble the trust fund and when Trouble died in 2011 she was buried alongside Leona! This shows just how much dogs mean to people. Halle Berry is a fan of the breed; her Maltese dogs are named Polly and Willy. These dogs have been involved in photo shoots that have been featured in many types of media.
Another Maltese owned by Eva Longoria, was named Jinxy. Jinxy meant so much to Eva that she considered her a part of her family. She even arranged to have her adorable Maltese be a part of her wedding, as Jinxy followed her down the church aisle during the special ceremony. Jinxy passed away in June 2018.
There was also a movie in 2015 featuring a Maltese called The Maltese Dog. It was about two investigative agents working to find out who “dognapped” Skipper the Maltese. A Maltese was also a character in a 2100 movie called Cinnamon. Cinnamon helped a single couple become together again.

Or, you may decide to name your dog after the appearance, such as the color of the coat the eye color. Names can include Almond, Mocha, or Silky.
