Dog Name Meaning Fire Considerations

Everyone who sees a fire truck automatically looks closely hoping to see the black and white spotted Dalmatian fire dog that often rides sidekick next to the first responders. Despite the iconic dog's popularity, many people don’t know the origins of the fire dog’s story in American folklore.

The roots of the firehouse dog can be traced back to the 17th century.  It was not uncommon to have carriage dogs who would trot along beside the carriages to keep the inhabitants safe and calm the horses. Such dogs were usually long-limbed with sturdy bodies that enabled them to keep up with the equines. The notoriety of carriage dogs led the firemen to start keeping dogs to trot beside the fire wagons and sooth the horses. The best dog for the job was the Dalmatian who quickly became the breed of choice for firehouses across America. It was also believed that the Dalmatian breed shared a special affinity for horses. It was not uncommon for the spotted dogs to bunk beside the horses at night in the stable. If your new canine addition is one who loves to run, you might consider a name that reminds you of the firehouse dog of old.

When the motor-powered fire truck emerged horses were no longer needed and the Dalmatians could not trot along beside the engine. However, the dogs had become famous so firehouses kept their pooches as beloved companions and hallmarks. Nowadays, the fire dogs commonly ride in the engine beside the firefighters and stand guard next to the large trucks. The pooches are also commonly used to educate the public, especially children, on various fire safety issues. They are also popular for starring in parades.

Modern fire safety has also evolved. Nowadays, fire dogs are also used as arson dogs. They are used to detect accelerants used to start fires to determine if the blaze was premeditated. Such arson detection dogs are not usually Dalmatians but a variety of other breeds. A courageous or curious dog may inspire you to think of these modern day heroes when choosing a name.
