New Family Addition-Help Me Name

We already have two, but couldn't turn down rescuing this wonderful female German Shepherd puppy about 1 year old. She's already 56 LBS. We are looking for name suggestions.

Gorgeous! Thanks for rescuing her. For names:

How about "Rip"? Then her back yard can have a Rip fence.

Or maybe "Dadoe", since then you could yell "Dadoe! Stop chasing the rabbets!"

(think someone's juicing my coffee again)

Nice looking dog Cman. I have 5 dogs at the moment and my daughter (Raechel) just brought home this little guy she found running the street. He was starving but seams to be a really good puppy. She found him running in Salem cemetery so she named him Salem. We took him to the vet and he's about 10 weeks and in good shape since he's been eating and getting some love.

She and my wife brought home a pregnant American bulldog/Boxer mix that had 10 puppies with a Golden Retriever mix. Sadly only one puppy survived (Checkers) after bottle feeding them and everything. The Momma dog which was what Raechel named her had to be put to sleep because of heart worms that were so bad. Rescuing animals is a great thing but I've had enough for now, although I said no more at #4 but she knows I'm a sucker. That's the one thing I hate about this area I live in is people don't take care of their pets.

I can ask Raechel for a name but her names are usually out there.

Hey she can drop some of her rescues over by you if you would like just send me your address.

Yeah C'man that's the one thing that saved him. He pushed the board holding him in the shop bathroom away enough that he could get out the bathroom. He ripped about 2 boxes of drywall screws open while playing with them and they were all over the shop floor. He also got a few other things and made a mess. I go to get him in the morning and he is in the bathroom again like nothing happen. That's cute and sneaky. Now the board was push up against the door with a 220v welding machine and was like 36" tall so I'm amazed he could push it out much less get back in.

Dogs are stronger than we give 'em credit. I had two German Shepherds in my first shop. The female came into heat. I tied her to one long wall bench thst was attached to a concrete wall. The male (115 LBS) I tied to a leg of my table saw bench. It was an 8'x8' table with a Unisaw bolted in. That male pulled that whole shebang to get to the female about 10' and still had the energy to do you know what. This all happened overnight.

I think Kenbo is a good name for your dog. It is playful, yet strong. OK, maybe not.
How about Zeena or Sheeba.
Bob is nice too. (sound of crickets.........)
tough crowd.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Cute dog! How about "Jenny"?

It will sound good when you have to talk to both at once "Katey, Jenny, get away from Shadow while you're in heat!"

What do you know about her before you adopted her. I mean had she been neglected, orphaned, just showed up etc. ?

All our animals (3 cats included) were rescue animals. Katey and Shadow were from Animal Control, which in this area is similar to The Humane Society. They were both around a year old, and there was no pertinent history. This puppy was dropped off in an industrial district and was just hanging out where ever she pleased. She appeared at LOML workplace. We checked for "lost dog" ads, and had her checked for a chip, which proved negative.

But, she has a very nice disposition and is very friendly. Thankfully, so far seems to be housebroken. She has a "thing" for our cats. It may be she hasn't ever seen a cat, but at first she was lunging. We've been having to break her concentration when she cops a "bead" one one of them.

It's been a couple of days and she found out how large a cat can make itself. Between the hissing and a wild cat look, they appear like they were plugged into a wall outlet.

I want to thank all that gave suggestions so far. There's been some really good ones. We will probably make a decision shortly, as we want to do some training, and a name will surely help.
