Did you keep the breeder name for your dog?

When we got Gryff from the breeder his name was Knuckles because he was such a knuckle head. We wanted to re-christen him with a name of our choice. Did you keep your breeder name? I was thinking about this because I love Kimberly's apples and oranges names and I was wondering if I were to have one of them (which I'm not) would I keep the name.

Do breeders get put out when the owner changes the name?

Our Frosty was originally Blackie. Obviously we changed it.

I gave Shadow her name, her breeder was just calling her "the mostly black girl", obviously, I wasn't going to keep that!

I did keep Tori's name...sort of. Her registered name is the same, JAS D'Va's Victoria, Keeper of the Secret. Her original call name was ViKee, which didn't fly in my family since my great niece is Vicki. I just "tweaked" it and changed it to Tori.

Actually, it depends on the registration. If the dog's been registered, you have to fill out a special form from the AKC and can't change if the dog's been shown and won an award. To use your breeder's kennel name, you need their permission and there is a signature for them on the form. But whatever the "registered" name, you can call your dog any name it responds to. Or some that it doesn't. LOL

Kodi's breeder gave him the name Kodiak. We just shortened it. Shelby didn't have a name, so we named her Cassie. She didn't like that name, so we named her after her sire. She was very happy with the name Shelby and responded right away. She ignored the name Cassie.

Rufus was from Kimberly's Exquisite litter and had the name "Bvlgari". We considered a few different names and Kimberly would test them out on him. She said he responded well to Rufus so it stayed! We did make his registered name fit in with the Exquisite theme. His registered name is "Havtahava Diamond In The Ruff".

Christy - I'd have to say that Rufus isn't a diamond in the rough any more but rather a polished gemstone! He's just a beauty.

I forgot to say, I love those names too! If I were getting one, I think I would keep the name also!

We decided to keep "Hank" as his call name...which is completely unrelated to his AKC registered name: "Yup's Say Hello to My Little Friend," in honor of that famous line in one of the most infamous "Cuban" movies.

Hank's litter mates were named after country music singers - Hank (Williams), Chesney, McGraw, Wille, etc. we decide to keep it since he fit the name quite nicely and we loved it's meaning: Ruler Of The Home. How appropriate.

Tessa was "Iris" and no she fully expected us to change it and immediately began to use it. Of course her registered name uses the breeder's kennel name in it.

I don't think breeders care at all, and expect you will make the dog "your own".
