Naming your pet is usually a joyous experience, your new friend is going to be with you for a lifetime and you want him or her to feel a part of the family. But you would never expect that the name you give might one day put your buddy in danger, would you?

That’s precisely what happened to this lady, when Imgur user AKghandi showed up at her house at 2am with a pizza delivery. Like many folk in Alaska, AKghandi was armed. When he saw a dog running at him, followed by a woman apparently shouting “SHOOT HER” over and over again, he reached for his gun and readied himself to take aim.

Luckily for this unfortunately named pooch, it was all a big misunderstanding. Scroll down to check out what happened for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments! (Facebook cover image: Evcabartakova )
