Chile Dog Names in Pop Culture
2017 wasn't a good year for Chile. Not only is poverty a massive issue, there were also plenty of forest fires that ravaged large patches of land. What were once thick, sturdy old trees were left as burnt and barren landscapes.
But you know what? Chile has a lot of dogs. So many, in fact, that families that were once well-off enough to own a dog, have had to give up their pets due to the financial hardships of the country. So, there's plenty of stray dogs around, most of which are friendly, as a result of having former owners.
These dogs haven't been completely abandoned, however. The country is actively employing several of these dogs to serve as guards for public areas. It's a cheap, effective way to make the country more secure, all while ensuring these dogs have public places to call home. Strangers often feed these dogs, which are considered publicly owned. Passersby will often offer up snacks or water, knowing that they won't be the only ones feeding the animals. Every little bit counts.
However, there are three dogs that are employed as more than guards: Das, Olivia, and Summer. And together, these three are helping to replant the trees in Chile, all cheaply and efficiently. Since March of 2017, the three Border Collies have been scampering throughout the charred forest remains with special satchels that help spread seeds as they run to sow seedlings, grass and flowers.
The objective is to not only replant vegetation, but to get the animals who once had homes here to come back. Achieving this could lead to the regrowth of a gorgeous natural habitat, as well as a place for locals to host tours for vacationers. And so, Das, Olivia, and Summer jump out of their owner's truck and run into the forest as they are charged with the crucial mission to help repopulate the forest with flora and fauna.
Whether they are aware of the importance of their actions or not is unclear, but the three dogs sure love to run around the charred remains, often exploring and playing, or chasing each other. And once they're done for the day? Well, they don't exactly go home. Instead, they go work with people with disabilities. They help people move around and get exercise, feel loved and courageous enough to keep being positively social. Yes, this trio puts most superhero groups to absolute shame, wouldn't you agree?
Chile Dog Name Considerations
You're in luck if you already adopted the dog. Obviously, it's not an ideal situation, having the dog at home and not having a name already, but it's a blessing in disguise. You can use this time to get to know the dog. The more you know, the higher the chances of selecting a name that really makes sense.
For instance, if your dog loves chew toys, and looks like a Wookie from Star Wars, you could choose the name Chewy. In other words, gather information, and think outside the box. Inspiration is everywhere you're willing to look.
If you don't have the dog yet, because you're adopting from a shelter, don't fret. The best approach is to create a list of names that stand out to you. Make sure to choose both male and female names, to be on the safe side. Once you see the dog, certain names should automatically stand out as possibilities. As time goes on, maybe over the course of a few hours, you'll be able to keep eliminating names from the list.
It's all about weeding out names that just don't make sense. Remember, the name needs to reflect the dog. It should celebrate the dog's personality, appearance, or preferences. Reflect on these exact traits as you peruse the Chile dog names, and we're sure the perfect one for your dog is in our selection.
