new little girl needs a name!

So on Sunday on my way to the store, I see a guy trying to catch a stray dog in my neighborhood. She was scared of him and wouldn't let him catch her, but as soon as I got out of my car and started talking to her, she ran right up to me. Today I called them asking if they had ever found her home and they said no. I offered to take in the dog to try to find her a home but she may just end up staying here :)

I think she might be some kind of Whippet mix because of how small and slender she is, and her brindle coloring is found in Whippets. As soon as I brought her home my dad wanted me to bring her to him in bed, and she cuddled right up with him. She's also spend a lot of time curled up with my mom or my sister, so they're all falling in love with her!

So her personality: she's a little shy and has kept her tail between her legs but wags it as soon as you start talking to her or loving on her. She's very much a "lap dog" always wanting to be cuddled up with you. She loves to lightly put her front feet on you to lick you, too.

Now... Help me figure out a good name for her! :)

I only have these 2 pictures right now but will get more. I want something that's kind of unique, like her. No normal human names :)

Also, does anyone have any idea about her breed? I assume Whippet mix but I have no way of knowing for sure. She is very small, maybe 18" tall.





P.S. Sorry this post ended up being kinda long and that these pictures are huge!

I like Stella and Georgia (I am in GA so that would work:)). Ruben is also a cute name. Charlotte also would fit her, but Char would be short for that and I already work with a horse who's nickname is Char (short for Chardonnay).

SarahAnn - I don't know if she's a puppy or not.. I think she's a Whippet mix, and if she is then she may be full grown or at least close to it. She doesn't act like a puppy playing with things or chewing on anything, but I don't know if that has to do with the fact that I think she's been a stray for a while.

Anyone else? My mom is thinking of just naming her Brindle since that's what color she is... I need some more ideas to run past my parents! :)

She is getting more and more playful and brave, today she actually tried to play with 2 of my 3 indoor cats and they were teasing her the whole time. And today she wasn't afraid of our 2 outside dogs so she may end up with them pretty soon instead of being an inside dog!

Her coloring is why I said Ruben. She is the color of marble Rye, which is what they use to make the Ruben sandwich :)

What about Roxy?
Nike? Chevy?
Dory?

Ahh that makes sense! Don't think my dad would allow Chevy.. He's a Ford guy haha. I like Dory but it makes me think of the Dory from Finding Nemo and her personality doesn't fit it..

My boyfriend has started calling her Daisy, but I don't know yet about it.. I think it kinda fits her

OH, I like Daisy! That's perfect.
She almos looks like she has a tiny bit of pitbull. I mean that brindle color is common in pitbulls.
