Another rather simple word with "tons" of contextual interpretations. Other possibles would be:

"Skjønn", "pen", "tiltalende", "deilig",
"smukk", "dekorativ", "estetisk",
but in as much as we're talking of a dog, I'd say that "vakker" or "pen" be the most appropriate ones.

Jamil or Jamila

This means "beautiful" in Arabic, which is one language used in Nigeria -- I presume you didn't want Norwegian! Jamil
for a boy dog (pronounced Ja-meel) or Jamila for a girl dog
