Introduction

Missouri - known as the "Show-Me" state, it is situated perfectly in mid-western America. Missouri was admitted to the Union as a state in 1821. The state is special in that it was the first state west of the Mississippi River to be named a state. Missouri has been the home of agricultural commerce as well as trade running up and down the Mississippi River. The state is home to a diverse population including the urbanites of St. Louis and the Amish communities of the northern portions of the state. The state has been home to much civil unrest; however, the state is now one of the most conservative states in the region.

Missouri Dog Name Considerations

When considering dog breeds which are suited for a name inspired by the Show Me State, one should first consider what type of dogs are most popular in the state of Missouri. The Labrador Retriever is the most popular dog breed in the state; however, the Golden Retriever ranks highly as well. Poodles and the Australian Cattle Dog are also well-liked in the state of Missouri. 

Hunting is a popular pastime in the Show Me state. As far as big game hunting goes, elk, whitetail deer, and wild boar are plentiful in Missouri. Smaller game such as rabbits, squirrels, and fox are also regularly hunted in Missouri. Turkeys and crows may be hunted, and a number of waterfowl round out the game available for hunting. As it is in many other states, a number of dog breeds are developed for hunting specific animals. The Feist is a great small game hunter, particularly where squirrels and raccoons are concerned. Beagles and hounds are utilized for hunting the larger game present in Missouri. Finally, breeds such as the Irish Springer Spaniel and the Chesapeake Bay Retriever are great waterfowl hunting companions. The Weimeraner is a great companion for those who enjoy hunting small game birds. With the variation of breeds and the sport they represent, choosing a name can be an enjoyable process.
