Unique male puppy names can be serious, cute or downright funny, as long as they’re masculine in tone to make sure you’re boy isn’t mistaken for a girl. Even though Bambi might be a good choice for a small breed, we’re not so sure how a male dog would like being given a non-manly title such as this. Perhaps you might ask him what he thinks, should you choose a gurly name like this.
Also important when coming up with a name, is taking into consideration your dogs personality, size and even it’s breed. Also, if you adopt an older pooch, you don’t want to confuse it by making it go through a mid-life name change when it’s tough enough to deal with adapting to it’s new home, in this case it’s probably wiser to keep it’s current name.
