Dog Names Meaning Cherished in Pop Culture
Buddy, a designer Labradoodle breed, was abandoned at a Humane Society's new shelter in the city of Geneseo, located in northern Illinois. When a shelter worker arrived to work in the morning, they encountered Buddy sitting alone in a very tiny cage outside the construction site of the new shelter being built which was located across from the old operational shelter.
The sweet dog was sad and confused when he was found. The pooch was looking for his owners and awaiting their return. The dog had no idea they would never be coming back. On the tiny cage was a note that read, "Hi, my name is Buddy. I have all my shots. I took flea medication today. I have outgrown the apartment I live in and [I am] in need of a new home with a big yard to run in and [I] am amazing with children. It is very hard for me to leave home where I am very loved and cherished, but I hope I can bring joy to my new family.”
The letter depicts the irony of the words, 'I am very loved and cherished.' How can anyone love and cherish an animal and then leave the creature stuffed in a create alone and afraid? Buddy had no idea what he had done wrong or where his owners went. He was very depressed when the shelter workers placed him into a kennel in the building.
Buddy's story was first reported by the local reporting of the Geneseo Republic and later it hit social media and other news outlets. The response to the pooch's story was overwhelming. The shelter received hundreds of inquiries about the dog and many applications to adopt the canine. Many families wanted to welcome Buddy into their homes to show the dog what it was honestly like to be loved and cherished in a forever home where he would never be relinquished so callously again.
The shelter has been using Buddy's story to push the awareness level of abandoned pets. There are innumerable dogs in shelters across the nation waiting on a forever home where they can be truly cherished and loved.
Dog Name Meaning Cherished Considerations
Science has even proven that dogs cherish their owners. In a recent study, Emory University placed canines into MRI machines and then exposed the dogs to various smells. Researchers watched each dog's brain to determine which smells triggered which reactions as displayed by the MRI. Every time the pooch smelled their owner's items the animal's brain lit up with activity. Just the smell of the dog's beloved human was enough to create a dramatic reaction.
The behavior of a dog is similar to that of a human child. Whenever the animal is anxious, scared, or upset they run to their owner for protection just like a child who experiences the same emotions and goes to a parent for reassurance. This is the foundation of a real relationship and why you should consider picking a name that shows how much you cherish your dog.
