A Chihuahua standing underneath a Great Dane



The Chihuahuas. The Terriers. The Great Danes. Dog breeds make magnificent sports team names. Here’s our list of the top six canine-themed squads in all of sports.

1. El Paso Chihuahuas

Minor League Baseball

This Triple-A baseball team has the name game mastered with this chuckle-inducing gem of a moniker. And the snarling chihuahua logo takes it to the next level, making it an easy pick for the top spot on our list.

2. Pace University Setters


Premier wordplay plus a fantastic logo featuring a fantastic dog breed makes the Pace Setters a slam dunk for No. 2 on this list.

3. Boston University Terriers


Boston terriers hardly seem menacing enough to be a sports mascot, but Boston University makes it work wonderfully.

4. Albany Great Danes


The gentle giant of the dog world gets the love it deserves in the sports world thanks to the University at Albany.

5. Newfoundland Growlers

Minor League Hockey

This team name incorporates A+ wordplay, riffing off the burly dog breed that shares a name with the Canadian province the Growlers call home.

6. Midland RockHounds

Minor League Baseball

This Double-A baseball team’s bat-wielding hound dog mascot is one of the best sports logos out there. Fun fact: Despite the cute dog logo, the RockHound name is actually inspired by the common nickname for geologists, who play a prominent role in the area’s oil and gas industry.
