The other day while cruising around I came across something interesting … there were an awful lot of dogs with country singer names. 

Then I got to paying attention and realized that most of the dogs with famous monikers were coming from one of my local shelters here in Idaho, the Canyon County Animal Shelter.

Love it! 

Just a few of the famous names up for adoption are Reba the long-haired chihuahua, Martina McBride the sweet pit bull (see above), and Patsy Cline the blue heeler.

Heck, there's even a heeler/terrier mix named Nashville.

I sense a definite theme here. 

If you're in Idaho and interested in adopting a country music star, just head to the Canyon County Animal Shelter. Better yet, if you live anywhere and want to adopt a wonderful pet, just head to your own local shelter. is definitely a great place to look too.
