An abandoned puppy has a new home and a new job. The 7-week-old puppy was left at a baseball stadium in Georgia, USA last week. Someone found it crying in the parking lot. It had no name tag, collar or microchip. The team put a message on its website about the dog, but the owner did not come forward. The team's president, Jared Orton, adopted the puppy and named her Daisy. The lucky pup also has a new job. She is the team's official 'bat dog'. A bat dog takes baseball bats to players, collects balls on the baseball field and pleases the crowd.
Mr Orton said Daisy looked very tired and a little lost. She was also hungry and dehydrated when he took her to the vet, but "was in pretty good health". He told reporters that she might be a little too small to hold a bat in her mouth. He said: "We aren't sure how big she'll get, so it's hard to say if she'll be able to pick up a bat." He added that she will be a regular at the ballpark and will be popular with fans. She will also greet visitors every day at the team's office. Mr Orton said finding Daisy was fate. He said: "It was just meant to be that we'd have a team dog as part of our staff."
