  • Mugle is an aweful name, sounds too much like ugly. I would give him a new name, why not since he has a brand new life!

  • change it, the dog will learn a new name. My parents had a dog that my mom and dad had different names for and she answered to both.

  • I was told that you can change a dogs name but its best to choose a name that starts with the same letter & has the same amount of consonents in it.... Makes its a bit harder- but im sure theres something better than mugly.

  • My parents adopt their dogs through German Shepard rescue and have changed all of their names. And two have become Police K-9s! I know how you feel, I have a dog named JD after my EX-husband Jason Daniel (not one of my mothers brightest ideas or the one time I decided to listen to her, LOL) and I have been wanting to change his name for years!!!

  • I changed my cats name about seven times the first week we hard her. Nothing seemed to fit and then I found the perfect name.

  • It's easy to change a dog's name. Just make it something that rhymes with his current name.
