Dogs Names Ending in 've' in Pop Culture
A few years ago, Arthur was robbed and shot outside a night club in San Francisco. The attack left him paralyzed and also traumatized as one could clearly imagine an event like this would. After many rounds of therapy, Arthur was given a therapy dog to help him deal with his paralysis and to be his companion. That dog was Love.
Therapy dogs are becoming more common and widely accepted as a great way to help people with trauma or general anxiety cope and calm down. Arthur has said that Love is his support system. She was there for him while he was in rehab for his injuries and she was there after all of his surgeries. She helped him through a deep depression and he definitely depends on Love more than she depends on him!
Love was with Arthur one night during an outing at a marina when she wandered off. Love was nowhere to be found and Arthur was desperate. He needed his dog back and quickly set up flyers in his neighborhood, as well as a full-on social media campaign to help him find Love.
Arthur's family offered a $1000 reward for the safe return of the dog and then actress Pauley Perrette of NCSI also offered to give a reward of $5000 for anyone who found the dog. She posted on her twitter page asking people to help make the story viral and return the pup to her home where she was desperately needed.
Then one Thursday, Arthur received a call that a man had just purchased a dog matching Love's description. The man said he bought the dog from two people outside a Walmart and he intended to give the dog to his aunt before hearing the story. He called the number he found on social media and got in touch with Arthur. Sure enough, it was Love!
Arthur said he was never letting his dog go and going to immediately have her microchipped. Love also seemed to be pretty excited to be home and the duo resumed life as usual. Now they spend their days visiting hospitals and rehab centers in order to motivate others who are in similar situations as Arthur once was. Now that Arthur has his Love back, he is happy once again!
Dog Name Ending in 've' Considerations
You can draw on your favorite books (think Maeve Binchy) or a treasured vacation spot. Consider your new pup's appearance. Neve, which translates to snow, would suit a white dog with a gorgeous coat. Character traits come into play as well. If you have a dog that is agile and graceful, consider the tag Arve, which stands for eagle. Picture an eagle showing their grace as they soar in the sky. Choose a name that checks all the boxes for you!
Consider what nicknames you would use for your dog if the name is somewhat long. While some names are shorter and perfect for day to day use, others may be a little longer and require a shortened nickname. Genavive, for example, could be shortened to Gen. Definitely something to think about as you make your selection!
