    Rename this Yorkie!

    I have bee avidly searching for a puppy, and a friend of a friend has a yorkie named Buddy, almost 2 years old that they need to give away because they are moving. He's very cute, but I think it'd be easier to picture me with him if I liked his name more. I think it would be feasible to rename him being young, but it would be better to stick to something close to Buddy.

    Alternatives to Buddy? I've thought of Muddy...(and all the other nonsensical ones that rhyme with Muddy: Luddy, Ruddy, Duddy, etc.)

    But I'm also to other unique male dog names!

    We have friends who adopted a "Buddy" but changed it to Buttons since there were other Buddies in the neighborhood already. I think the initial sounds is more important than the rhyme but most dogs get used to the change pretty fast.

    How about:

    Bertie
    Buster
    Bellamy
    Bentley

    or just something with a "ee" sound at the end:

    Teddy
    Harley
    Jonty
    Delaney

    Or something you love but would never give your child.....

    I knew a family that turned a Brutus to Buddy with no drama - the other way is funnier, especially with a tiny dog. I wouldn't name a Doberman Brutus, but I would call a Yorkie that.

    I adopted a dog whose original name was Lovable nn Bull. We tried calling him Buddy but it didnt feel right. We eventually named him Max(he was only a few mons old and responded to whatever we called him.) Anyways, Bull is kinda and ironic name for a Yorkie. I like the above suggetion of Brutus. Good luck!
