Milwaukee Brewers say Hank the dog has found a home

PHOENIX (WTAQ) - The Milwaukee Brewers are about to lose their most popular character at Spring Training -- Hank the dog.

The stray pet has been a mascot for the Brewers ever since he showed up at the team's Maryvale spring complex at Phoenix on February 17th.

Now, the Brewers say they've found a home for Hank. They won't say where he's going. He'll make one more big splash with the Brewers when they host a pet adoption day at Maryvale Saturday.

A group of pets will be available for adoption, and the team will take donations for the Arizona Humane Society.

The Journal Sentinel says Brewers' fans back home have taken a real liking to Hank -- who was named by the team after former Brewers' and Braves' slugger Hank Aaron. One fan said the pet looks just like their Bichon Frise dog, who's named after former Brewers' star Cecil Cooper.
