Finding the perfect name for your perfect little pup
Yorkshire Terriers - now the 3rd most popular registered breed in America - deserve a special name and there are lots of ways to find one.
Here are just a few: go with the flow and pick one of the most popular names today; name your pooch after a celebrity or a celebrity's dog, or.... use geography to help you. Dakota? Paris? Sky? Play with flower names (Daisy?), months (April?)....
You could go with an old-fashioned name, or try a super modern tag. Use his looks or character for inspiration, or go with a name that's absolutely opposite like Joan River's Yorkie "Spike."
