    I just got a 1 year old Male Rottweiler named Oso, I'm not wild about that name and haven't come up with a better one yet. Any suggestions?

    Not really Ron with out seeing him, but at one (1 ) year old he may not take to a new name, Dogs can get confused I tried it with very little success.

    Though I haven't tried renaming a one year old dog, I understand why you would change Oso so good luck. It may be something that speaks about what you care about. My daughter named their Labs Milo, the drink :hilarious: and the female retriever, Kinako, the roasted soybean flour but named the latest addition Ethan, a one-eyed Chihuahua. A drastic change but probably because she loved the tv show Extant. For me, I would name a fierce dog Jack for my favorite Jack Hammer IPA :smuggrin:

    I renamed another Rotty when I rescued her at 8 years old. I couldn't pronounce her local name and changed it to Aika very easily. Hope I have the same luck this time. (When I come up with one)

    Ai 愛(love/lovely)
    花 (hana) means flower, is also read as "ka" but
    華(hanayaka)which is also read as "ka" means gorgeous. The name Aika refers to the latter.
