It's no secret that the littlest canines always have the largest personalities. Call it a Napoleon complex or call it confidence, but the tiniest of dogs are usually the ones who take no crap. They walk into a room with their little chests puffed out and own it — which is precisely why small dogs are totally in need of names that are worthy of their attitudes.
Yes, it's cute to name your little puppy something appropriate like Tiny or Peewee, but how amazing would it be to call them something more substantial — like Bullet or Scrappy? That's the best part about picking a name for a mini-dog. The possibilities are endless.
