I don't have a dog named George, but if I did I would love my George! Or Jorge, as we would playfully call him :) George is a totally normal and cute name that one can give to their loved pupper!! There are other names too, but George being an uncommon-ish dog name really gives it some vibes, so why not go for it... It can't hurt, right? RIGHT??
