43 Original Boston Terrier Puppy Name Ideas

My baby was found wandering in a neighborhood and turned over to the shelter. She only weighed FOUR pounds!!! She was on stray-hold for 10 days…very fragile-extremely underweight, grade 3/4 luxating patellas, and a UTI. At the end of the 10-day hold, she was turned over to Rescue to get her healthy. I immediately applied to adopt her and out of hundreds of inquiries, I was the chosen and lucky one to adopt her. The Rescue named her “Chicken Little.” I didn’t like it at first, but when I saw a video of her running to her foster mommy after being called “Chicken Little,” I knew I loved that name for her. “Chicken Little” it is!

This was our girl Nevaeh. We rescued her from a terrible place where she was starved, beaten & they tried breeding her @ 9-10 months old. She was so thin & scared when we got her, but so gentle & loving. We named her Nevaeh, heaven backwards, because she was our little bit of heaven on 4 legs.

This is Buckeye. His full name is Buckeye Hamilton Beans. His second and third names are in honor of his predecessors. Buckeye was born on a Friday the 13th, and we thought about naming him Lucky but thought that might be tempting fate. So, we named him Buckeye since one of his dads is from Ohio, where buckeyes are said to be lucky. We call him Bucky for short.
