I think you're right that all pups deserve a loving home, regardless of the issues they've come to have because previous humans failed them. But taking the first one back does not negate the sincerity of your belief and your caring about him. Taking him back gives him a chance
at having that kind of home. You did the right thing and I don't think you should feel any shame in that. Mistakes made with sincere and honorable intentions are not shameful!
And nothing wrong with keeping the same name, either. It's a great, strong name and your new dog is no less deserving of it.
I hope you continue to share your progress and if you ever learn any followup on the first dog, I hope you'll share that, too.
Congrats on finding your way and on finding what seems like a very good fit for your family. He's a great looking boy!
