Mississippi Dog Name Considerations
Dogs used for the purpose of hunting are highly popular all over the state. In fact, don't be surprised if a husband owns a Lab or a Beagle for hunting purposes, and his wife owns a small Maltese or Yorkie. Mississippians are just flexible that way. You may also find farmers with Blue Heelers (sometimes referred to as Texas Heelers) to help herd cattle. Some hunt wild hogs with American Pit Bulls. To be certain, there are some dogs that are not suited for the extreme heat that Mississippians often experience. Huskies, American Eskimo Dogs, and Alaskan Malamutes are rare due to their thick double coats which often make them unsuitable for living in an area that often reaches 104 or 105 during the dog days of August
In all actuality, any name is a good name for a dog lucky enough to find himself born and bred in the Hospitality State. Often, they will reflect the Southern heritage of the owner, and many Mississippians find influence in family names, historical people and events, and the looks and personality of a dog to determine a proper moniker for a pooch.
