An unwanted puppy has a new home. Someone left the 7-week-old puppy at a baseball stadium in the USA. The team put a message on its website but did not find the dog's owner. The team's president adopted the puppy. He called her Daisy. She is now the team's 'bat dog'. She will take baseball bats to players.

Mr Orton said Daisy was also hungry and needed a drink. The vet said she "was in pretty good health". Daisy may be too small to pick up a bat. She will be at the ballpark every day and greet visitors. She will be very popular. Mr Orton said: "It was just meant to be that we'd have a team dog as part of our staff."
