So I guess this is to the members who have rescued or gotten dogs from breeders already named. Lol for those of you who changed your dogs names what were their original names. And why did you change it? Maggie May- she was *shudder shudder shudder* Tootsie originally :yikes:. I don't know if she came to the rescue with that name from the puppymill or if the rescue gave her that name. But im my opinion it was god awful lol and I had to change it. I already knew I was going to rename her whatever her name was because I just wanted to. Maggie May fits her so much more and its 100% better than Tootsie. Tucker- Tuckers registered name is "Benny The Bull" which is what the breeder named him. So he came to us named Benny which my mom didn't like and really neither did I. My mom was trying to think of names and I was looking at my books and noticed one of my favorites "The Trouble With Tuck". I love the book its about a blind Labrador. So I threw the idea of Tucker around with my mom and it really seemed to fit his personality. And even though she has passed away. Pixie Stick- When we got Pixie from the shelter she had come there with the name Samantha. And though she was 8 years old there was no way we were keeping her named Samantha. Because im Samantha lol and it would just be weird and confusing. I wanted to give her a unique original name and I found Pixie Stick on a list and it just fit.
