Brown Dog Names are not difficult to imagine. Naming your dog based on his color is not only popular; it adds a tint of style to your lovely brown dog. With many small breed dogs, the brown color is often referred to as chocolate.
Some breeds even have brown noses, eye rims and foot pads that are brown. You might find them referred to as liver points. Points refer to the color of a dog’s nose, the rim around the eyes and mouth and the paw pads.
Be aware that not all puppies with deep dark brown coloration will retain the dark chocolate look throughout their life. Some will, but some lighten up creating a rich blend of browns, fawns, and creams.
If you purchase a brown
puppy from a breeder, ask to see the parents.
You will then know what your puppy will look like as she ages. Dogs with liver pigmentation do not lose the
brown, so if your puppy has a brown nose, she’ll have a brown nose her entire
life. Once a brown nose pooch, always a brown nose
There are probably larger breed brown dogs than small dogs, but if you love the color, you have a wide variety of small breed dogs to choose from:

We drew inspiration from the trees, plants, vines and flowers growing near our home.
