Shaggy Dog Names

If you love The Shaggy Dog movies or you have recently obtained your own version of a shaggy dog into your life then you might want to consider naming your pooch after the iconic show or film. You can also pick a handle that showcases all of the pooch's fur puff. Let's face the facts, there is just nothing more adorable than a fluffy, shaggy dog. When thinking about a name to commemorate the iconic story, The Shaggy Dog, you will have to decide if you want to pick a name from the novel, motion pictures, or television movies. 

The novel,  'Salten's The Hounds of Florence', written by Felix Salten, was the basis for the first Shaggy Dog Movie. Walt Disney created the black and white film The Shaggy Dog in 1959. The movie is about a boy who turns into an English Sheepdog. It follows the boy/dog's many adventures. The film was Walt Disney's first action comedy and fans loved it. It was considered a unique theme for the era and even a bit shocking to very conservative audiences. The film was the most successful and highest grossing Disney movie of the time. The movie was made on a budget of only 1 million but grossed 9 million which was considered extremely successful for the era. The original movie was re-released in 1967 and also did well financially. Walt Disney had originally planned to make the film into a television series but it never occurred. A comic book adaptation did occur that followed the film closely and became very popular. 

In 1976,  Walt Disney released a sequel to the successful 1959 movie. The sequel was called The Shaggy Dog D.A. Audiences loved the film and it was considered a success. In 1987, a television sequel to the movie was released. It was followed by a 1994 television remake that also received a fan following. A 2006 theatrical remake of The Shaggy Dog was also launched but received low reviews by the critics who appeared to not like Tim Allen's performance in the movie. Although the film was thought of as a remake, it was starkly different than the original, iconic motion picture created by Walt Disney during the 1950s. When picking a handle for your dog, you will have a lot of shaggy dog considerations such as will you pick a name from the book, movie, television film, or just a cute name for a dog with a lot of shaggy fur?
