The First 48 Inspired Dog Names in Pop Culture
Dave is also a common name for dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds. Dave is a Scottish name that means "beloved friend," which is a fitting name for a canine pal. Because the name Dave is so common in the canine world, there are more than a few popular pups sharing this moniker. The first Dave the Dog featured in this spotlight is a Spitz who works as an actor. Dave had a role in the film Coming Up in 2003. Although his career is not expansive, Dave's sweet expression and ability to really ham it up on screen isn't easily forgotten.
The next Dave the Dog featured in this article is a very lucky pup! Dave's start in life isn't exactly known. The mixed breed dog was first spotted by soldiers in the Royal Marines stationed in Afghanistan. He was being mistreated by some local children (who really didn't understand their actions), who were pulling his tail and generally teasing him. The soldiers swapped some mini flares with the children for the privilege of taking Dave home. He spent the bulk of his time in the barracks with the Marines. When the battalion's service time was over, they arranged with a local rescue to take Dave. It was highly important that Dave be removed from the area where the Marines had been stationed; it was the most dangerous area in the nation. Although Dave had to live in the rescue for a short time, the rescue worked to reunite Dave with the Marine who found him, and transported him in London. As of this writing, Dave is happy and healthy with his owner.
