Name our new dog

Post by Admin on Sat Nov 08, 2008 8:01 am

ok,we have just taken in a rescue Maremma Sheepdog.She is delightful,gentle,beautiful...but completely nameless! nearly 2 yrs old ,and never had a name to call her own.Just tied to a tree in a yard full of broken glass Sad

of course she is large ,and white ,and of italian heritage .
I like short 1 or 2 syllable names (ex...Dan ,Rita etc) ,or otherwise ,fun kinda names like Mrs Pricklebottom,for example !
We have spun a dozen names ,but nothing is really fitting her,so can everyone get their thinking caps on
Thanks
Tammy x

One of the kids from the family of my favourite labradoodle Milo, has a daughter named Remy. Maremma - remma - Remy... just a thought. Cool

well here she is....the first day she was here




i shaved her off because she was a real mess,besides its already into the mid to high 30's here ,and i wanted to get a good look at the wound on her neck from the chain she was on...



and out in the yard looking out for Poppett & Little Man



she has settled beautifully ,what a sweetheart. Troy is loving her company,and he is already much more settled Smile

And....i think we may have a name. will confirm later

Good to hear that she's settling in so well and looking after her new herd. Is Troy teaching her to hunt rabbits yet Laughing

Bless her, she is gorgeous. What a difference the clip made! Is she in good health generally? Like all dogs that come from a nightmare situation to their dream home she looks like she's enjoying the company and the love and wont look back. Well done!

aside from a cut on her foot,and a slight scarring around her neck from a chain,she seems to be in great shape. She went out for her first walk with Troy today,and after several minutes,worked out what i wanted from her,and we did an hours walk without too many problems.
I think we are going to call her Nan (nanny) because she is such a gentle patient thing with all the dogs ,but i had a suggestion of Nonna ,in keeping with her italian heritage....what do you all think of that ?

I don't mind Nonna. Did you use a 10 on her... it looks pretty short. Nice work though Cool
