Grey's Anatomy Dog Names in Pop Culture
Jack (also known as Union Jack) was the mascot for the 102nd Infantry of Pennsylvania, which was mostly volunteer firemen who adopted the black and white Bull Terrier after he wandered into their firehouse in Pittsburgh. When these men enlisted, they took Jack with them, and he was by their sides in many different battles including Appomattox, Sailor’s Creek, Petersburg, Spotsylvania, Wilderness, Rappahannock, Gettysburg, Fredericksburg, and Yorktown.
This smart pooch actually learned what the different bugle calls meant and would do whatever his soldier brothers were supposed to do. When they fought, he would run to the front lines and comfort the wounded soldiers and was even able to search and find the dead. In fact, Jack would not leave the side of any mortally wounded soldier until they had passed away. It was as if he knew they were dying and needed someone there with them.
Jack was wounded two times during his service in the war. He took a bullet in the neck and shoulder during the Malvern Hill battle and luckily, the medics were able to save him. Then he was back on the field, doing what he loved to do. In the Fredericksburg battle, he was wounded again but not as seriously. The brave Bull Terrier was also captured by the Confederate soldiers twice. The first time he was able to get away just a few hours after capture, but the second time he was a prisoner of war (POW) for over six months.
While he was a POW, he comforted and cheered up the other prisoners and gave them hope that they would make it out of there. Some of the soldiers said that Jack playing and acting silly for the men, even licking them and waking them when they were trying to give up, was what kept them going. Even though Jack probably had many chances to slip out of the prison, he stayed faithfully next to his brothers of war until the Union traded a Confederate soldier in return for Jack.
The men who Jack fought alongside were so proud of him for all that he did to contribute to the war and to the POWs that they collected enough money to buy him a silver collar that they presented to him in a special ceremony in August of 1864. However, Jack disappeared on December 23, 1864, and many believe that he was caught and killed for his silver collar.
Grey's Anatomy Dog Name Considerations
Does your canine kid like watching television with you? Are they right next to you on the couch as you watch the student doctors on Grey’s Anatomy become real doctors while they get their personal lives all tangled up in hospital affairs? This show has been a hit for the past 13 years, so you may have to give your poochie a rundown on the past episodes so that they can keep up. Then again, it is hard for you to keep up with the show with as much drama and relationship changes going on at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
So, if you love Grey’s Anatomy so much and your fur baby loves to watch with you, maybe you should go ahead and give your poochie a Grey’s Anatomy name. It does not have to be a name of one of the characters, although there are plenty of pawesome ones. You could use one of the real actors’ names or even the name of one of the writers or producers. Or one of their last names. Maybe you could just name your pupster after the hospital itself. While there have not been many dogs on the show, there have been a few, and you could use one of those names if you remember what they are. We will share some of the ones we like best.
