Top 100 male dog names

In the U.S.A., pet ownership has become a big business. According to the Humane Society census, 83.3million people owned dogs in 2012. 70% had at least one dog, while 20% had two, and 10% had three or more dogs. Luckily, 83% chose to spay or neuter their dogs. 30% of the dogs placed in shelters are reclaimed, and by sad comparison, only 2-5% of cats find a second home,even though 95.6 million people in 2012 owned at least one cat! The preference between male dogs and female dogs is evenly split, according to the census.

Today, such things as gourmet dog food can be purchased, without by products and gluten and with fruits and nuts added. We can buy every conceivable toy and even strollers for our four footed friends. Is it any wonder, then, that the names that we give our pets has taken on more importance? After all, the name should reflect the personality traits of our pooch, as well as our love. Here, then are the top 100 male dog names-

Our Pets give us so much more than we give to them. They offer us unconditional love and admiration. They help to soften the pressures of today’s world. For single folk, they are the someone that we come home to, the one that greets us when we open the door. They can offer us protection from harm, and alert us to intruders. In the case of trained working dogs such as Police Dogs, they may even give their life to save ours. In times past, Mastiffs guarded their master’s purse, and pulled carts loaded with merchandise or perhaps the master’s children.

St. Bernards carried brandy up steep mountain sides to men who were injured and helped rescuers to locate them. Blood Hounds are still employed to find escaped inmates or missing persons. Many are trained to sniff out cadavers and, of course, survivors in the aftermath of storms and earthquakes and other disasters. It only stands to reason that they deserve the best name that we can give to them. A name that reflects their dignity,size and strength. The name that we give our male dogs also reflects our preferences and fashion . Perhaps male dog names are more important than we realize.
