21 Unique Girl Dog Names for Your Shih Tzu

Why get a unique girl dog name?

Getting a pet is a major decision, right? Think again, it's all about choosing the name you bestow upon your dog because it will represent them for life. Long gone are the days when dog names were confined to Rex, Rover or Bud. The common dog name era is over. Want proof? We were at BarkWorld2016 Expo a few weeks ago and we met up with chihuahuas named ”Bruce Wayne and Phipps”. 

Still need more proof? 

The most googled searches are: popular dog names, funny dog names, and Indian dog names. (Who knew?)

 In 2016 we give our pets more sophistication and personality when it comes to naming them.We first met our baby on a rainy Saturday afternoon, April 26th, 2014 at 3:30pm. We decided to immediately bring her home 15 minutes after meeting her. But we hit our first problem before we even left the pet shop, she needed a name, but which one? 

We bought all the necessary equipment: playpen, dog bag, wee-wee pads, toys, food, and a crate. We took a cab ride home with everything in the trunk except our new puppy who was scared in her bag--but not as terrified as us

She was tiny and got lost inside the bag but she'd pop her head out every once in a while when we'd hit a bump. Wanting to come up with a name before we got to Brooklyn, I posted on social media that we were looking for suggestions. We got a few common girl dog names like Princess, but it just didn't feel right for her or us. As we got closer to the Brooklyn Bridge, we hit a large pothole and she popped her head out once more. As I looked at her and what looked like lion mane fluffing out of the bag--it hit me, so I asked German what the Spanish word for a girl lion was and he said, leona.
