The year 2001 saw a great interest in street racing; this is largely due to the popular film The Fast and the Furious. This action film told the story of Dominic Toretto, a street racer who, along with his sister and several friends, are under suspicion of criminal activity. The legendary late Paul Walker plays the part of an undercover cop (Brian O'Conner); the actor had a passion for racing just as the characters in the movie. Eventually, Walker's character realizes that he has been surveilling the wrong crew. Though O'Conner and Toretto must work through trust issues, the pair become trusted friends by the story's end.

The Fast and the Furious Dog Name Considerations

When considering what breeds are best for a The Fast and the Furious-inspired name, dogs associated with racing or with high running speeds are often the first that come to mind. 

Two breeds closely associated with high running speeds are the Greyhound and the Whippet. These breeds can run at nearly thirty miles per hour, a great speed for a dog! The Whippet is a close cousin to the Greyhound, and their need for speed is just as prevalent. However, the Greyhound and the Whippet aren't the only two speedy breeds! The Vizsla is known for showing great speed in the hunting field; he is also quite active even when not running willy-nilly! 

Two very surprisingly fast dog breeds are the Jack Russell Terrier and the Dalmatian. The Jack Russell Terrier is known for their high-energy lifestyle; however, the breed has very strong legs that allow them to jump and run very quickly. The Dalmatian also has a very strong body, and these strong legs make them surprisingly quick dogs. The Borzoi, who is distantly related to the Greyhound, has reached speeds of thirty-six miles per hour. Just as swift is the Weimaraner, who has been clocked at thirty-five miles an hour while hunting prey. Any of these breeds fit the description of "fast and furious."
