There’s not a many cars that have been named for specific dog breeds, but I think this Bedford Beagle here feels pretty beagle-like. Dog breeds should be used more for car names! Even more generic names like “hound” would be good for maybe a work-focused SUV, or maybe ahepard?. “Whippet” for a Lotus-like sports car. There’s so many possiblities!

I like where this is going.

Boarder Collie for the Mini-van - put the herd in one place.

Golden Lab - The huge family sedan. Friendly and helpful.

Jack Russel Terrier - Italian sports car. Fast, twitchy, prone to over reaction.

English Bulldog - Gigantic SUV. Slow, full of gas, but for some reason we want one.
