Rottweiler Dog Names in Pop Culture
Of course, with a working dog, one might assume that his name should be something to exemplify his strength. Perhaps his name should be intimidating or powerful. Conversely, a name that fits the laid-back nature of the Rottweiler might be a little of the unexpected. This is the case of Miley Cyrus' Rottweiler/Beagle mix, aptly named "Happy." While many believe that the Rottweiler is more of a guard dog than a companion dog, those who own Rotties extol the sweetness and joy of owning the breed. In this way, Happy is aptly named. Some owners choose to name their dog Happy due to the extra bounce they appear to have as they step through life. Happy's tail might be described as constantly wagging. In addition, Happy is always ready for new adventures.
One television dog named Happy (his real-life name was also Happy) starred on the television series 7th Heaven. Happy appeared in several episodes of the series. He was found at a dog pound by animal trainer Shawn Webber. Webber sent Happy to Boone's Animals for Hollywood and continued to work with Happy on the 7th Heaven set. Happy was a mixed Terrier, however, not a Rottweiler. A lesser-known "Happy" has quite a YouTube following in Hong Kong. Happy is exuberant and ready to play at any time. He is highly intelligent, and he can be seen performing tricks for his handler in his videos. Another YouTube star named Happy is Happy the Pug. This joyful Pug has a following on many social media outlets.
Rottweiler Dog Name Considerations
Many Rottweiler pet parents will wait a few days to study the individual personality of their new Rottie. Generally, a Rottweiler is standoffish around strangers. He can be somewhat stubborn, even with his own family or handler. However, once a person earns the trust of a Rottweiler, he can be certain of a friend for life. Rotties often need to be convinced that they need to follow a command; they do not blindly obey their handlers. However, the Rottie is regal and majestic in how he carries himself at all times. In summary, naming the Rottweiler is never an easy task, and owners must choose a moniker wisely.
