Dog Puns To Match Your Pup’s Personality

This StephanieCristi blog article inspired by the writer's new puppy lists out dog puns to be used as playful pet names.

Oh my goodness, let me tell you: it has been so difficult choosing a name for my new puppy! I’m a huge fan of word games and puns, I find them so incredibly interesting and mentally stimulating! My sweet kitty’s name is William ShakesPurr (PurrPurr for short) and I just know the chances are high that puppy’s name will end up being chosen from a long list of dog puns as well.

I have been brainstorming tons of pun puppy names and so I thought I’d share them with you here, in case any of my lovely readers are looking to grow their furry, four-legged families!
