Brewers Officially Adopt Adorable Stray Dog (Photos)

Hank the dog found his way into the Milwaukee Brewers spring training facility in Phoenix, Ariz., at the end of last month, and after the team’s unsuccessful search for the pup’s owner, Hank officially has found a home with the Brew Crew.

The team recently adopted the dog after he arrived in February looking “a little grubby but ready to play,” according to ABC News. A Brewers employee took Hank to a veterinarian for a checkup and bath, and the vet found signs he might have been run over by a vehicle. The vet estimated Hank’s age at around 2 years old but was unsure about his breed.

The team named the dog Hank after legendary slugger Hank Aaron, and lil’ Hank has even had a chance to play with the big boys — he ran in the Brewers’ famous sausage race dressed as a hot dog.

Hank’s even got a hang of the Brewers’ rivalries already.
