The Boston Globe


Help the Globe add to the dog name database

What’s the most popular dog name and breed in your town? There’s still time to join dozens of Globe readers in seeking those answers under the Massachusetts Public Records Law.

The Globe is looking for people in Greater Boston communities to file requests with their city or town to obtain local dog license information. The filings will be done through our partner in this venture,, a service that helps people file public records requests.
