Upright Ear Dog Names in Pop Culture
For those who like apocalyptic movies, there is no doubt that I Am Legend is one that has hit your television screen at least within the last few years. This film features Will Smith and portrays the chaotic world that is released after a virus that was supposed to cure cancer goes rogue. People everywhere are dropping to the Krippin Virus, morphing into creatures that can only come out at night to hunt; thus earning them the name of "Darkseekers". In a rush, Neville sends his wife and daughter on a helicopter to escape the city, left with only a German Shepherd puppy by the name of Samantha to keep him company. Lovingly dubbed as "Sam", Neville's dog grows up by her master's side as they fight for survival in this new life. Neville was completely immune to the disease and he set out to find a cure.
Each day, Sam goes out with Neville in order to hunt for deer that have now begun to wander around the deserted city. At the end of their shift, before returning home for the night, Sam waits patiently while Neville sends out a distress call from the South Street Seaport in order to check for survivors. This is their day to day life, until Sam makes the unwise decision to chase a deer into a dark building, where the Darkseekers have their hive; changing everything.
When Sam ran into the building, Neville had to go in after her in order to bring her out safely. Unfortunately, this did call unwanted attention to them and the Neville needed to set up a trap outside of the building in an attempt to capture one for his studies. This trap was successful and he brought home a monster, but in the end, it cost Sam dearly. The Darkseekers where more intelligent than originally thought and set a trap for Neville himself. Sam sat by his side the entire time until he was able to escape, but when a pack of infected dogs attacked Neville, Sam ended up being bitten in protecting him. For those who haven't seen the movie, we won't spoil the ending, but overall there is no doubt that Sam's bravery and loyalty to her master are the most heart warming and tear jerking moments of this film. So if you have a German Shepherd and love this movie, then the name "Sam" could be perfect for you.
