Stray dog Hank becomes big hit in Brewers' camp

PHOENIX (AP) -- The most popular member of the Milwaukee Brewers at spring training is an unexpected acquisition with a button nose, four legs and scruffy, white fur.

"Hank the Dog" is an early lock for camp MVP -- Most Valuable Pet.

The pooch strayed on to the team's complex a week ago. Employees took him to a veterinarian to get him cleaned and checked out. The vet thinks Hank may have been hit by a car after coming in with an injured tail.

Hank was named for Hank Aaron, who began his Hall of Fame career in Milwaukee.

The dog plays in the clubhouse and on the diamonds. The team says it will adopt Hank and take him to Milwaukee if the local owner isn't found.

A vet estimates Hank is about 2 years old. No word on what breed Hank is, but he looks like a bichon frise mix.
