Ok the story goes like this...We had a trailer fire Monday morning the 15Th at 4:30, well on the way there was reports of trapped animals. We had a crew go in on the back door and right when the walked in there were dead animals in the door way. When they went in a little more one of our female FF's spotted a dog on the floor still moving. She picked it up and it was still breathing, so she came out and put a nonrebreather on it and later it started breathing on it's own. Well come to find out the reason they had so many animals in the house and outside was that they were all rescued in some way and they were keeping them. They all were also under adoption and with a few FF's attached to the dog already the Chief brought it up at our Tuesday meeting to take votes on possibly adopting the 6 month old dog from the family. So everybody agreed to adopt the one we saved and take care of it, but it's at our local vet and its pretty much in the ICU. It is in stable condition and should recover. So we are pretty much waiting on the doc to release it and then we can adopt. and there's another but... It doesn't have a name...we would like to keep the name within the fire service, so if any of you have suggestions please tell. Thanks

Sounds like you might want to consider "Lucky"!

I had a neighbor once that had 2 American Pit Bulldogs(the Patton dog), and their names were "Lugnut" and "Crowbar". I always thought that "Crowbar" would be a good name for a Firehouse dog!

TCSS
Lucky
sparkie. its always been the classic firehouse dog name. Lucky cuz the dog's lucky to be alive. or smokey, cuz the dog inhaled so much smoke.

Hal or Halli (for halligan)

i like smokey, being an employee of the forest service and all
Call the dog "Newspaper". If he gets out, when you go outside the station and call the dog, the neighbors will think you've completely lost it.
somethign catchy so if you have to holler for it outside will make all the ppl wonder what is going on. like FIRE!!!
