Naming your dog Tiger is a roaring success! It's a nod to the iconic Frosties' mascot, Tony the Tiger, who's been "Grrreat!" since 1952. It's also a playful paradox, because let's face it, your pooch is more likely to chase its tail than stalk prey in the jungle. Plus, in Chinese culture, the tiger symbolizes power and bravery - perfect for your courageous canine.
