I think we have found the rescue dog for us, he's a bedlington greyhound - so a scruffy/ shaggy lurcher.
We are trying to choose a "human" name but can't agree on one, all suggestions would be very welcome please.
So far we have
Robbie
Riley,
Dylan,
Lenny
Eddie

Worst thing we be done is to try to find a name that DC and DH & I all like - all the names have 3 out of four likes and one adamant no usually stroppy 11 yr old DD

We have had guinea pigs o et the years called...
Edward
Louis
Dave
Vincent
William

I think they'd make excellent names for dogs.

My friend has a dog called John.

I think it's great grin

If I were you, I would put ten names in a hat and pick out one, no arguing then !

We have always had dogs and called them human names
My absolute favourite was Wesley, an English setter (cream and ginger)

Based on your description: Boris / Basil / Humphrey / Dax / David

I'd come on to say Bert, but have been beaten to it.

In that case, Trevor. Or Colin. Or Gordon.

My boy is called Billy, or Bill. I have to be careful calling him when there are old men around on walks as it could cause confusion wink
