The Top Ten

1
Buddy
Makes me think of Air Bud and the Buddies series. Buddy was such a good dog- I even name my cat Buddy, but that's because I kept calling him that on accident, it's probably because the name fit him so well, because he was my pal. Not better than my puppy though. Dog's are the best friend you an ever have, and I'm not just saying that because it's true. I've learned from experience.
Well dog's are always your buddys man's best friend!
1992 - 2009 Buddy Muswagon

6Max
Max is a lovely name, because my mother had a dog called Max, and it makes the dog sound happy and playful, which you always want in your dogs name, I think that it is just truly a brilliant name, and I would recommend it to anyone with a boy dog. PS: I wish I could call my dog Max, I would love to.
Are you kidding me? That's my boyfriend's name! I bet he'll get pretty mad when he find out that his name was actually voted #11 in TheTopTens.com for "Best names for dogs"! It's kinda hilarious, don't you think?

Even a golden retriever. But personally, my favourite name EVER for a dog is; Socks or yogurt. They're totally funny names that will suit dogs with fun and affectionate personalities
