As you bring your pit bull home, you need to start socializing him, which means first giving him a name. This type of dog has a horrible reputation and there needs to be more well-mannered and well-socialized puppies to be good-will ambassadors. Work on his housetraining and make sure that you keep him healthy by deworming, vaccinating, and giving him a heart worm preventative. Above all, socialize, socialize, socialize! Did I mention that you should socialize your puppy?

There is some controversy out there as to whether we should even be calling our dogs “red nosed” or ”blue nosed.” Your new dog doesn't care. All he cares is that you call him, so here are a bunch of great names you can use to call attention to that special hunk of flesh he has in front of his cute face.

Boy Names

If your dog is a boy Red Nose Pit Bull:

  • Barak: The word for red in Balinese. Everyone will think it refers to something else, of course, but your dog will know the truth.
  • Brazil: The country is named for brazil wood, a type of tree that gives a red dye.
  • Crimson: Blood red.
  • Danger: Not actually red, but most of us think of that color when we think of danger.
  • Elmo: The red character from Sesame Street. This is a great name if you want people to be less afraid of your pit.
  • Hamar: Darija (Moroccan Arabic) word for red.
  • Laser: Not always red, but most commonly it is a focused red light. Everyone will think of red, of course.
  • Mango: A fruit that is usually red.
  • Red: Not very original, but to the point .I like most of the other words though since they have two syllables.
  • Rudi: A Latin word for reddish color.
  • Rudolph: This is not my favorite but does appear to be the most popular name.
  • Rufus: The Latin word for red.
  • Rusty: Another shade of red.

If you want to use a tough name, a macho name, or even a boring and overused name like Cujo, Charlie, or Buster, go ahead and do so! These names are great but your puppy will attract a lot of attention with almost any name.

Girl Names

If you have a girl red nose:

  • Coral
  • Garnet: A red semi-precious stone.
  • Rosy: Red as a rose! Your dog will respond to the two-syllable word Rosy better than Rose.
  • Rowen: A red berry tree
  • Ruby: A red gemstone.
  • Scarlet: A shade of red.

After you have chosen a name, the first thing you need to do is get a tag with his name, your name, and your cell phone number.

Your dog's life may depend on it one day.

These great dog names will also work with redbone coonhounds, of course, so if you like one of these names and have a new redbone puppy be sure to help yourself. Red dobermans and dachshunds really need a German name, but a red poodle can fit into about anything. If you have a red Siberian husky, and you don´t want to use an arctic name, these names will also work out for you. What about a red chow chow? A Chinese name would be best, of course. Put some thought into it—that name will be with your dog the rest of her life.

Any other red dogs out there looking for a good red name? Make a good choice.

Young Pomeranians look like chipmunks but later they can develop an intense red coloring.

A pomsky is a cross between a Pomeranian and a Siberian husky. Some are red like Poms, some are black and white like a Siberian Husky, and some are just, well...

      I lose power every few days, sometimes for as much as a day at a time, but thank goodness we never have those cold streaks to worry about when it happens!

      2 feet? That is one thing you could sell at a kiosk down here. A lot of people have never seen it.

      I must admit I had a few wistful thoughts of The Beach of Brazil. We lost power 3 hours after my last comment. We were only out for about 14 hours, but when the power finally kicked on, it was 42 degrees in the house.

      We got the 2 feet they promised us...and then some. It's difficult to measure because of the drifting. We had wind gusts around 70 mph but our trees made it unscathed.

      It will be around 50 degrees with rain on Monday, so we'll see plenty of flooded streets and basements.

      I guess I shouldn't be smiling at this, but I am so glad I am not in Mass at the moment.

      Like me! We're in the middle of our worst blizzard since 1978. We're supposed to get more than two feet of snow...winds at or approaching hurricane force. So, I'm chilling out right now.

      It's 6:30 PM and the worst is supposed to occur overnight. I have to be to work at 7 AM, when it will still be raging, although the worst will be over. I'm only a mile and a half away, so I could walk if necessary...but I have a 4 wheel drive Jeep so I should be OK

      I think Ive seen that question on Yahoo Answers: What happens if I mix a Mastiff and a Chihuahua? Some people have too much time on their hands!

      In the 70's! Was it what you were smoking that made you try for Pomskys? Nowadays the public's insatiable appetite for designer dogs opens the door for anything. Mastiffhuahuas anyone?

      All these web sites talk about "Rudolph the Red Nosed Pit Bull" and expect that we all know the song. A shiny nose in a dog indicates respiratory disease, right--at least that is what they claim on Web MD.

      I tried to create Pomsky designer dogs back in the 70s but I never could get my female Huskies to lie down for the act, and as far as using a male Siberian...yikes!

      A Pomsky!? I'll bet that was an interesting honeymoon. How about Madam Rouge for a female red nosed pit bull?

      Rudolph the red nosed pit bull never made it big because he was plagiarized by some arctic dude who made millions on records, books and red suits. Record and book sales have dropped off somewhat but the Santa gear is off the charts.

      Thanks for the comment! The Pomskys are supposed to be the size of the Pomeranian with the markings of a Siberian Husky.

      Mango is pretty cute, but wouldn't it be fun having a big dog named Elmo?

      I've never heard of a Pomsky. Do they get big like a siberian husky?(assuming that is a pup in the picture.)

      If I needed to choose a name, I like Mango.
