Some dogs are so fuzzy and huge they look exactly like, well, a bear! The furry Newfoundland and the stubby-nosed Chow are warm and huggable and perfect for the name Bear.
But not all Bears come in extra large! Toys like Shih Tzus and Bichon Frises are cuddly like little cubs, and Pomeranians look exactly like baby brown bears.
Endearing and sweet, Bear is the name Robert Pattinson chose for his rescue and Jennifer Lopez gave to her Boxer. And if you're still wondering what to name a pet, Bear will remind everyone of their favorite stuffed animal, the teddy bear.
