101 Girl Puppy Names

Updated on July 13, 2016

Having a dog can be a doggone good time, but they are a whole lot of work! Especially if you plan on adopting a puppy. Puppies require a lot of time, patience, and love; if you have all of these to give, than adopting a puppy might be just right for you!

Puppies Need Time, Patience and Love

Time: Everyone know that puppies do not come pre-trained, and this, of course, includes potty training. If you don’t want your home to reek of urine and dog feces, then you better have the time necessary to potty train your pup! This includes getting the puppy used to going to the bathroom around your already-busy schedule, or training the puppy to go on potty mats if it really can’t hold it until you get home.

Patience: With anything that requires a lot of your time, comes the need for a lot of patience! Training a puppy doesn't happen overnight; it takes a lot of persistence and consistency to train a dog to do anything, including training them to not piddle on the carpet! Accidents happen, and this is something that every dog owner should understand. So, if your dog has an accident, it’s best to maintain your patience and continue to reinforce the training that you are both working on.

Love: Last but not least, actually most important, is that you are able to provide the puppy with a loving home. If you cannot do this than you should really consider other options, such as not adopting a dog at all.

Selecting the Right Breed

If you are confident in your abilities to provide a dog with all of the above, great! It’s now time to decide on what type of dog you want. Ask yourself the following questions, and they should help you to decide:

  • Does your neighborhood or residence have deed or breed restrictions?

  • Do you have enough land and interior space to house a large breed?

  • Can you handle a lot of drool?

  • Do you have time to vacuum every day after a breed that sheds a lot?

  • Do you have enough funds to afford grooming, or can you groom a dog that needs it?

  • Do you want a high-energy dog, or one that calms down a bit with age?

  • Do you want a dog for protection?

  • Does it have to be a purebred?

Asking yourself all of these questions will help you to decide on a breed that is right for you, through process of elimination. Your next step will be deciding the gender and where to adopt from!

        laura h - Looks like a Maine Coon. These guys don't reach full size 'til their a several years old! It's not uommncon for them to weigh 20+ lbs and have size 8 feets. For the most part, if this breed was any more laid back, they'd be dead. Love shot #2 — he looks so regal looking over his kingdom with the clouds around his head!
