Rocky's Naming Story
Meet Rocky, a handsome rich coloured yellow Labrador. Rocky was named by staff and customers at Morrisons Dumbarton in Scotland.
The gift of a name
Puppy Rocky was named by Morrisons Dumbarton, who along with ten other Morrisons stores in the West of Scotland chose Guide Dogs as their local charity partner.
After hearing about another Morrisons store’s Name a Puppy experience, the team at Morrisons Dumbarton were inspired to Name a Puppy too. Staff and customers held a variety of fundraising events including a raffle, bag packs, collections, and even a sponsored head shave to meet their fundraising target of £5000.
The story behind the name
The store asked staff and customers for name suggestions. One of the names put forward was Rocky, after local historic site, Dumbarton Rock. It was agreed by all that Rocky would be the perfect name.

Our new puppies all live with our wonderful volunteer Puppy Raisers (formerly called a Puppy Walker), who care for our pups from when they are just 7-8 weeks for just over a year, when the puppy is ready to move on to the next stage of their guiding journey.
