How is it possible that video games could save the world? In the 2015 Adam Sandler movie Pixels, video game genius Sam realizes that he must use an arcade-type video game to save the world. Somehow alien beings have intercepted video-feeds of arcade-style video games from the 1980s such as Pac-Man and Donkey Kong, and they have interpreted these videos as threats from planet earth. Sam Brenner, once an arcade video game champ, learns that a U.S. military base in Guam has been attacked by what seems like characters from the Galaga game. After a few similar attacks, Sam begins to realize a pattern (one of his talents). He will join other arcade-style game masters to help save the world.

Pixels Inspired Dog Name Considerations

While Pixels is chiefly concerned with video games and aliens, one of the games the aliens mimic is the legendary Duck Hunt, one of the first Nintendo games on the Nintendo console. Duck Hunt features a dog that interacts with the gamer. This brown and white dog would look over its shoulder at the gamer, jump into a bunch of tall weeds, and retrieve any downed ducks. However, this pesky pup would appear and laugh at the gamer if he or she happened to miss the waterfowl. Although the breed of this dog is not given specifically, there are a few brown and white waterfowl hunting dogs that might possibly fit the breed. 

The Brittany Spaniel is a liver and white dog that favors the dog featured on Nintendo's Duck Hunt game. The Brittany Spaniel is a great retriever, and they are often a pointer as well. The English Pointer and the English Setter have color variations that are brown and white also. Finally, the German Wirehaired Pointer is very much like the dog featured in Nintendo's Duck Hunt. Any of these breeds would be fit for a name inspired by the Pixels film.
