If we were to ask someone to draw a picture of a puppy and then color it in, it is likely they would choose brown. It is impossible to tell what color of coat is most common in dogs, but we do know that brown, black and white are the most common colors. In saying this, we need to elaborate on what we mean by ‘brown’. Various tones encompass this descriptor, ranging from light caramel to deep chocolate. For this reason, if you have adopted a brown dog and are struggling for a moniker, AnimalWised has 120+ names for brown dogs at your disposal.

Female brown dog names

While their color won't significantly affect their personality or behavior, we can respond emotionally to a dog's aesthetic appearance. This is especially the case with brown dogs since they can be so many tones. We may think of brown as being a dull and boring color, but do we think the same about chocolate, mocha, caramel or toffee?

These types of brown dog colors also happen to relate to many different touchstones such as coffee, sweets and much more.
