Mellow Yellow: Names for Dogs who are Mellow and/or Yellow

There are lots of dogs who are yellow, notably Yellow Labs and Golden Retrievers, but also Wheaten Terriers, Bearded Collies, Afghan Hounds, and Cavanese (which is a cross between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Havanese dog.) Note: Chihuahuas are technically cream colored, but many people would classify them as yellow dogs too.

The number one name for a yellow dog is “Old Yeller” after the beloved 1957 Disney Movie. You could shorten this to just “Yeller.”
