It is an exciting time when a new dog or little puppy joins the family household. The first glance into their loving eyes is usually enough to seal the deal, and I am sure that is why dogs have such expressive eyes. But as you enjoy introducing your new pal to your home, the realisation that you need a name that is special and is fitting for this dog suddenly is brought home to you. Perhaps the name you originally thought of before you got the dog now seems inadequate? However, help is on hand as this list will help you choose an original and tailored name. Inspired by amazing Police Dogs, here are some names that are both gallant yet original. By choosing a name that is less common, when you call out for your dog you won't have a dozen other dogs heed the call as well.
Police Dog Names in Pop Culture
Dogs make such good canine actors - they are willing to be trained and act as goofy or mean as they are expected to do. To them it is all a game and seems to please their master. Turner and Hooch is the story of an obsessively well ordered police inspector Scott Turner, who is left with a dog on his hands - something he is not quite prepared for. Hooch's noisy and destructive nature is the complete opposite of Scott's neat, tidy and calm existence. But as the plot unravels, the pair work together to uncover a local murder situation and the two develop a real bond with each other. I won't say any more except that you need to watch the movie and it may make you cry a bit. But the ending is happy. Hooch is a cool name for a dog, although his real name was Beasley which is a great name as well. Police dogs are so well trained; they are devoted to their handlers, and fulfil a vital role in law enforcement. The partnership between dog and handler is very strong and deserves respect for the commitment they have and the risks they encounter as part of their job.
Another awesome movie is K-9, a story about an unlikely pair. At first reluctant to have a canine partner, Mike Dooley (played by Jim Belushi) requires help to fight a drug dealer who is trying to kill him. Jerry Lee (the canine star) has been trained to smell drugs, so teams up with Dooley to help solve the problem. Jerry Lee just isn't any old dog though, he has a mind of his own and only likes to work when the mood strikes. He is also quite disruptive and boisterous, so you can imagine the trials and tribulations going on here. The dog is a brilliant actor; Jerry Lee is played by a 3-year old German Shepherd from West Germany named Rando. This dog with a cool name had to learn commands in English, as well as how to act the part. It just goes to show how adaptable and intelligent dogs are.
Police Dog Name Considerations
Single or double syllable names are easy to say whereas longer names can become a mouthful. For a young active dog, you need to be able to say their name quickly before they disappear! Keep in mind that you will be calling your dog's name out in public, or saying it at your veterinarian's office, so choose wisely. A respectable name that honors the brave and courageous dogs of Police Forces world over is a wonderful choice.

Common name for male labs and he was 10 months old when we got him and already had that name.
My family rescued Jax in 2010. He was about four or five years old when we got him. We just had to put him down yesterday. We chose Jax because my father is a police officer and is friends with many K-9 officers.
