Note that our research comes via the data generated by Viseme.co that recorded over 290,000 dog names from Seattle, Tacoma, Pittsburgh, New York, and Los Angeles. Cha-Ching! This is how much you can expect to pay for essentials when you own a dog.
Like the Labrador, the Golden is well suited for a family, especially one that lives near the water. Their lustrous golden coat is water repellent and they actually have webbed feet so a day at the lake is one of their favorite things. They adapt to just about any environment, even apartment living with enough exercise. Just donât count on them for being much of a guard dog because Murphy, Rusty, Goldie, Tucker, Sunny, Ellie, Abby, Simba, Bailey,Â and Cooper are more likely to lick intruders than bite them. These are the 14 things every puppy should have.

And Shep and Gretchen made the list too, honoring their German heritage. Hereâs how to find the most suitable breed for you.
