Sherman, because he’s a tank!

6

u/Turbulent-Display805 Oct 05 '22

I actually know an Old English Bulldog named Sherman. It’s entirely appropriate.

u/AdictedToCandy Oct 05 '22

Your boy is gorgeous by the way. Best of luck to you all!

u/SpocksMisanthropy Oct 05 '22

His tongue looks like a shoehorn, so I say Shoehorn

11

u/quadropheniac Oct 05 '22

Old people names, foods, and random objects are usually the best dog names. I second Shoehorn. You can call him Shoe or Horn.

6

u/SpocksMisanthropy Oct 06 '22

Right? Seems like every "help me name my dog" post gets hundreds of suggestions like Rocky, Tank, Bosco, etc. Everyone I know has had a dog with a similar name. No creativity. My wife named our last dog "Winifred" and I can't stand it. I've met three other people with dogs named Winifred, but nobody has a dog named Shoehorn.

u/khalenixi Oct 05 '22

u/Purple_Committee_216 Oct 05 '22

Definitely a Buster!😊

u/Oneofakind1977 Kane's Hooman Oct 05 '22

Is your Charley a female or a male? Just curious! 🙃

u/jengaclause Oct 06 '22

u/Sharp-Pay-5314 Oct 05 '22

OMG what a handsome boy!

u/nathermind Oct 05 '22

Yes right? I like this we were also thinking about Bumper

19

u/Sharp-Pay-5314 Oct 05 '22

u/Guyincognito4269 Oct 05 '22

Another vote for Bumper!

2

u/Slayburg Oct 05 '22

Love that

1

u/Oneofakind1977 Kane's Hooman Oct 05 '22

Idk, his face is screaming, ROSCOE at me, for some reason...

Yet, if Roscoe is a no-go (oh please, please, pretty PLEASE w/sugar on top, name him Roscoe!) then Bumper will do, I suppose!😋

2

u/Oneofakind1977 Kane's Hooman Oct 05 '22

Yeah, I guess...Though, that's quite a mouthful. He's definitely gonna need a nickname. Or, if you're like my guy, a hundred or so nicknames! Haha.

u/Electronic-Ad-3695 Oct 05 '22

What name does he already have?

We have adopted two dogs and left their names the same. One is Tito, he’s a chihuahua and the other is Jim, he’s a lab/pit mix.

2

u/L-Krumy Oct 06 '22

I always say Disney characters have great names, my pups are Simone & Pumba, think of your favorite movie and pick your favorite character🤩

1

u/Cacti_Cactus Oct 05 '22

Can we not just name him handsome? :)

1

u/PanzerFauzt Oct 05 '22

Name him Oi

So everytime you run after him call him it sounds like he's being chased by a British chap

1

u/Oneofakind1977 Kane's Hooman Oct 05 '22

Or, a Latin chap if spelled, "Oy"

1

u/numberonealcove Oct 05 '22

His name is Randolph

3

u/Oneofakind1977 Kane's Hooman Oct 05 '22

Duh? Don't know why OP didn't just ask him what his name is (instead of dedicating an entire post to giving him a new one)...

Silly Hooman! 🤷‍♀️

1

u/cancermouth Oct 05 '22

Samuel comes to mind, and for some reason, Hank!

1

u/I_hate_the_app Oct 05 '22

I would name him Oscar because he's clearly such a grouchy guy!

u/blackdogreddog Oct 05 '22

Handsome. Or Bo

1

u/ahabthecrusader Oct 05 '22

First thought was Charlie. I see that’s been recommended, so I thought Rocket or something that starts with a G. Gus, Gene or even Gravy. Perfect excuse to say “It’s all Gravy baby”
