Romanian Dog Names in Pop Culture
One of these dogs was Theia, an emaciated dog covered in fleas and ticks. She lived in a city pound, with broken spirits, having lost all hope of ever being welcomed into a loving family with enough space for her. But alas, she was rescued. It took 2 months of intensive medical care to begin seeing improvements. Soon, she'd doubled her weight and began looking like your typical black Labrador mix.
Her owner, who goes by Howl of a Dog online, wrote a post on Theia: "It’s been now 8 months since we saved Theia, she has become a part of our family and we cannot imagine life without her. We rescued her and she rescued us. There are millions of dogs like Theia waiting for a chance in shelters from all over the world. Sadly, many of them never get to know the love of a forever family. Please consider adopting a shelter dog: he will give you in exchange his loyalty, unconditional love and infinite gratefulness for being his savior."
That's the thing about Romania's stray dog situation: it's not like they're not trying to solve the problem, it's just that it's been decades of trying and failing. The shelters are full to the brim, so much so that illness and disease is running rampant in them. It's not until someone adopts them that they get out of those dire circumstances, and there isn't a guarantee of that even happening. As Howl of A Dog stated, many of them never get to know the love of a forever family.
It's cases like Theia's that can change the world for the better, not just Romania. So if you're willing and able to help out, please do! Volunteer, learn more about what happens behind the scenes, and stay as informed as possible.
Romanian Dog Name Considerations
However, you're currently reading a Romania guide, so think about how that relates too. Is your dog a Romanian breed, or rescue? Was your dog living in Romania before? How about you, do you have any ties to Romania? If you're just wanting a Romanian name because you're looking for vampire references, that works too. Whatever the reason, make sure you know exactly what it is, so that you can better focus on it and get the name you really want. Just remember, whatever name you choose should reflect your dog. Or at least be ironically funny. It's up to you. When you find it, you'll know it beyond a shadow of a doubt, that's for sure. So don't settle!
