If your new white dog is a Siberian Husky or Samoyed, you really should find a name appropriate to Siberia. If you have an American Eskimo, a Boxer, a Dogo Argentino, a white German Shepherd, or even a white Bull Terrier, these names will work great. For others among the really cute small white dogs, this list is perfect!

Find a name that fits your dog´s looks and personality, call him a few times to see how you like it, and make sure everyone in the family will use it.

There is no point picking a great name if no one will use it to call your dog.

Some of them, like this Kuvasz puppy, only start out small.

There are a few rules when should remember when naming your puppy:.

  • Don´t give your new white dog a name that sounds like one of his training commands. If you use normal English training words, none of the names on this list will be hard for your puppy. Just remember that even the best dogs get confused, and you really shouldn´t make it any harder for your new puppy than it already is!
  • Always choose a name that has one or two syllables. If you stick your dog with a name like “Marshmallow” you can call him Mallow; don’t get mad at him if he just stares when you try to use that long word that he is not even able to understand.
  • Give your dog a name that commands some respect. You might think it is funny to name your dog “Scooter” after he has diarrhea, or “Barfy” after an accident in the car. It will not be funny later when you are out at the dog park with your new white friend.
  • Do not give your white dog one of the overused dog names. Your dog is an individual. He deserves to have a unique dog name!

Some white dogs are REALLY small!

        Brian, that is a picture of an Australian girl, not a boy, and the dog is a Maltese, not a Westie. If you are not able to tell the difference you should not leave comments.

        Hi wetnosedogs. Solaras published a really great list of Celtic dog names the other day, https://pethelpful.com/dogs/Strong-Dog-Names-13-Ir...

        I know your crew are all grown up so you don´t need any names at the moment,but if you have not seen it take a moment and give it a gander!
