Need help in naming a pup! He desperately needs a new home as of this Saturday or else and I'm seriously thinking of helping him have
another chance at life.

He's the one on the right. Yea I know he'a a little rough around the edges but he'll be ok!

Come up with some unique names!

Some I have been suggested are:

Bandit
Zorro
Boots
Patches
Speckles
BUSter
Spot
Outlaw

Have fun and thanks...

Ace,

I got another one for you how about "Turbo"  also if you gave him the name "VanHool"  you would be one the only people who could say they were the proud owners of a Prevost & a VanHool.  Think of it you could take your Prevost & your VanHool for a drive at the same time. LOL”  I'm jealous already.

That's great idea...."Lime".  When we go to Dallas' I'm bringing the Corona's and Ace is bringing the limes and a sharp knife!  Wink

Now back to names for Ace's new friend and companion.  Years ago I had a dog I called "Taisho", which is Japanese for General, because after I got out of service I yearned to be able to tell a General to kiss my butt!  Cheesy

Of all the dogs I've shared my life with...my favortie was a 160 lb Rottie named, "Mister".  He was a gentleman and a bounder at the same time.  His real name was  "Meister Wunderbar" which of course translates to "Mr. Wonderful", which he was.  By using the call name "Mister" it could hold kindness when spoken softly...but when snarled...he sure paid attention.  When we were just playing or affectionate, it was " Mr Puppy" which he endured for over 12 years.

So, my offering is: Mister.

That's my two cents!

Whatever you name him...bond with him quickly and heal the hole in your life, Ace.

Thanks guys and gals for all the names you have come up with! It's been fun reading. Since I had Pepper and made many visits to the local Vet's office, I have become friendly on a first name basis with all the girls and staff that work there. Knowing them, I don't think damnit would go over too well f you know what I mean? I like the idea but...

Lime is ok too but I would have to explain WHY too many times and that would drag ME into the story!

Someone emailed me the name "Spade" which kind of clicked and goes with "Ace" but...

"Driver" is good but he will never be allowed to...

"Vears"? I have no cluse as to what a V2 is...

"Turbo" is ok too but just as soon as I start calling him bus parts, I'm sure to break down on the road, WITH HIM!

Japanese Names? Nah, I don't even like Japanese foods! With all due respect to all the Japanese! Same applies to Mexican ames and some Foods!

I like "Diesel" but I'm hoping he won't be as expensive as it really is though I'm prepared top spend whatever it takes just as I would to travel! I'm hoping Diesel comes down!

Can't name him "Ace"! There is only room in the dog house for One of us and I keep it pretty warm!

"Pog" was a good one to start it off but them guys are snobs and I'm hoping I can train this pup to be everything  but that, since he will be attending most rallies I attend!

"Lucky" so far fits him, and I like "Keeper" two more from emails...

Levi and Wranger also fit any cattle dog but I couldn't do that to a good friend like Jack who has helped me look for a dog!

I guess the one that fits the best is wait and see what kind of personality he has and go from there! Heck once we meet up, he might give me some clues as to what he answers to best and since I will be travelling solo from home to  Warner Robbins Ga. where he is now, we will travel West to Columbus, Ga., then off to Montgomery, Al. to spend Sunday together with some friends at the race track! Boy I sure hope he likes travelling! Smiley

Thanks again as it's been a fun evening for Susan and I reading all the replies!

You still have until Saturday and then some I'm sure so if you think of any others keep them coming!

Until then...

Wish me luck!

Ace

He needs a good macho name to make him more desirable to the ladies...

Well buddy I have to put in my 2 cents also, here goes.
(1) "Prevo"--for your bus
(2) "Tim"---for his first bus gathering, (Timmonsville).
(3) ("Detroit")--yep, you know why.
(4) ("Diesel")--Yep, you know why and this is my favorite but it's your family friend.  I am sure you  will choose the fitting name after observing how he thanks you for his new loving home.
I have more but you get the idea.  I am almost sure you will come up with one of your own and very fitting. 

We all tried, this was fun getting us all involved like you did.  Oh, why not ("Mack") for the MAK board??  Still trying.

See you later buddy in Timmonsville with your new family friend.

Y'know Ace,  the more I look at the little guy the more convinced I am that he's going to show a lot of the Jack Russel traits.  Perhaps you mentioned it in your first of first few posts and I'd forgotten.

They are very active and good scent dogs...might be a problem keeping him home.

You guys are too much! I like them all for one reason or another but it's really HIS name and he is the one that will have to like it if you know what I mean! Smiley

I received some other emails and one that I like and to be honest was already thought of before the email was "Spade" which goes with well, Ace! I was surprised to get an email with the same suggestion as what I had thought of but who knows! By Sunday I'm sure I'll know more about him and come up with something that he answers to.

As for Vears and a V2? I never gave the bike thing a thought but your right. It does resemble a V motor on a Harley.

As for the Jack Russel Trait? I'm not sure I mentioned it but a JR was my second choice of dog. My first choice was, which is what this one is listed as, is a Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler MIX. NOT a pure bred Heeler. They tend to have longer coats and bluer/brown/black patchy looking brindle colors.  It's hard to explain but they have a look all their own! The mix breeds have the same colors but you never know how or where the colors end up as in this dogs case. He's mostly white with a LOT of black speckles and an obvious  black mask.  They can have red (brown) patches and speckles, Black patches with speckles, or even just one solid color. The Heeler breed is a very smart breed and trains well. They are good watch dogs and good around kids. Sometimes too good as some have told me they had to get rid of the dog because it kept herding the kids by nipping at thier heels, hence the Heeler name!

This HAS been fun and I can't wait to see if I get him or not. I'll know more Saturday and I'll post ASAP!

Thanks again guys! This has meant a lot to me!

You're right Ace, the Blue Heeler was not a breed I was familiar with but I am a bit more now..

They've got the same ear set as the Jack's and the picture of him showed him a bit bigger than his companion and that should have told me something.  Russels are small dogs and from what I've seen of them without a strong hand can be a PIA.

But whatever he is I feel confident that this will be a great pairing.  We'll look forward to seeing you and him in October!

Yea Jack I forgot that but it's true! When born they are almost all white and then darken as they get older. Pepper when young, about a year old was real white with black patches and had a half mask. Pure black half mask and at the end had no white and no mask. I had forgotten how white he was until I saw an old picture of him when he was young!
I'll see if this pic will appear of him when he was young. You can plainly see how white he was compared to how dark blue and black he was at the end!

I'm hoping this new fella will darken down in time as Pepper did! I guess time will tell!

Ace

Ok I can't add the  picture. I have re-sized it until it's too small to even see and it still won't let me add it! Says the uplaoder is full!  This really sucks!  Angry

Now you know how he became a half Jack/half Austrailian sheperd. Grin

Thats my guess.

Of course I have a Blue Heeler, Austrailian Sheperd and Akita on the outside(big pastures to play in)

and a Chaweiner(half dachshound/half Chihuahua) on the inside.(spoiled brat)  Translation= 1-50lb bag of dog food per week

Stick with the smaller dogs.   Trust me....

Ace-I think hes a COOL looking dog.    How old is he?

Cliff being in a pound or rescue it's hard for them to tell but they say he's about, or going on 1 year old. I hope he's not too old to be trained. They are a smart breed so if I work with him enough, as I did Pepper, He might come around ok! As they say, Time will tell!

I'm leaving first thing in the morning to check him out and check him out IF he's all they say he is, then off to Montgomery, Al. Sure hope he like's travelling! LOL I'm not too crazy about the run from Warner Robbins to Columbus Ga but it appears to be the shortest route! Anyone else know a better way? I'm open for all opinions!

Ace,
I haven't chimed in on this one yet because it seems to me to be a very personal thing, between you and the pup.
Whether he's exactly what you want or not quite or even not close, he is looking to you to save his life.
However he turns out, he will be your very best friend.
He'll never second guess you.
He'll never cheat you.
He'll never knowingly hurt you.
He'll be there at the end of the day.
He'll be there at the beginning.
Most of all, He will never, ever, judge you.

Take care of him and he'll take care of you.

Oh, and by the way,
Just don't name him "Fred" Grin Grin Grin

Ace,

My Heeler and Austrailian sheperd were 1 yr and 2yrs old when we adopted them into our family.

They both are the best behaved dogs I have ever had.

I think it is because we both had to feel each other out, instead of them growing up from a pup around me.

They are fiercely loyal and I think it is because they have lived in another place and way.

And it wasn't as nice as they have it now.

One of the great thing about Dogs is they are pack animals and they quickly become part of your pack.

Good Luck up there and post some pictures.
