My female dog is named Shellie. She origionally was Michelle! Foster family called her Shellie. She was two yrs. old.
My female dog before her was named Katie. We kept Katie. She was a year old.
Both adopted and pre-named.
I don’t think it is appropriate to change a name they have been called their whole life. Only adds to more confusion for the dog. thanks, Lori
