In advance of National Dog Day (August 26), Trupanion has released its anticipated list of most popular dog names and breeds for 2021.
Surveying its database of more than 600,000 insured pets, Trupanion has compiled a tail-wagger of a top 10 list. After ranking third in 2020, dogs named “Bella” put their zoomies to good work over the past year, bursting to the top with the most popular name in 2021.
