Brindle Dogs in Pop Culture
The dogs that were brought in to play the part of Winn Dixie are a more rare breed known as a Berger Picard, or Picardy Shepherd. This breed is loyal, loving, and makes a great family dog. Berger Picards usually have a fawn or brindle coat that is wavy.
If you have ever seen the classic movie The Wizard of Oz, then you know who Toto is! Toto is Dorothy, the main character's, loving and loyal dog. This brindle Cairn Terrier stays right by Dorothy's side throughout the whole movie.
Towards the beginning of the movie, Dorothy saves Toto from being taken by her mean neighbor, Almira Gulch. Almira tries to take Toto because she says he bit her. Once a horrific tornado comes through her town, Dorothy's house is whipped away into the strong winds and lands in the Land of Oz. Dorothy and Toto wake up in a strange place only to find that they are far away from home. Toto protects Dorothy as she ventures through Oz, following the yellow brick road, to find her way back to Kansas.
The pair meet many friends along the way. They meet a Scarecrow, a Tin Man, and a Lion and they all tell her that in order to get back to Kansas, she has to meet the Wizard of Oz. Eventually, the three of them venture through Oz to try to get to Emerald City, where the wizard is. They encounter many obstacles along the way, like the Wicked Witch, the flying monkeys, and talking trees.
Dorothy and Toto eventually make their way to the wizard and get back to Kansas where she belongs. Although Dorothy is the main character, Toto is always with her. He is almost like the main character, and even though he doesn't talk like the other fictitious characters that are not human, Toto's personality shines through by the way he walks, trots, and his facial expressions. It is very easy to fall in love with the little guy!
Brindle Dog Name Considerations
Fortunately, since there are so many colors within a brindle coat, finding a name is easy. This is if you choose to name your dog after the appearance. Since there are so many shades of brown and gold, and plenty of shades of grey, red, and black, finding a name to suit your furbaby should be no challenge at all.
You may lay eyes on your dog for the first time, and a name comes right to you. You may see your brindle dog and think Caramel, or Mocha. Or, you may choose to get to know your dog for a few days before deciding on a name. You may consider a name based on a different characteristic, like your new dog's personality, anything funny you see your companion doing, or based on their actual breed. Any name you choose, though, will be special. It will be well thought out by you, the new dog owner!
