Lazy Pug suitable for a lazy dog name

We came up with this list of lazy dog names because we recognized that not every pup has the energy or desire to chase the mailman, play fetch or go for brisk walks.

No, not these dogs.

Lazy pups take the art of lounging to new levels. They’re the pups who feel most at home on your lap, the couch, recliner or their doggie bed. They’ve come to realize that all they really need to do to earn dinner and a whole lot of attention is just to be cute. Why bother doing anything more?

Also we've noticed...

Lazy dogs have certain attitudes

-Is someone robbing your house?…Be my guest, just leave my bowl

-Do your kids feel like playing?…Have fun kids!

-Want some attention after a hard days work?…Go see the cat

-Chase the mailman?...Why?

It’s for pups like these that we offer the lazy dog names below, naming ideas not meant to make fun of your pal, but cute names for lazy pups that prove that even though it’s low on motivation, it doesn’t mean it can’t have a sense of humor.
