When this little puppy was rescued from the parking lot at the Grayson Stadium in Georgia, the home of baseball team Savannah Bananas, she was shaking like a leaf, as scared she was.
The team’s president, Jared Orton, was the one who saved the poor little creature. Mr. Ortega initially tried to reach the pup’s owner throughout the baseball team’s website since she she doesn’t had either a collar nor a microchip. But his attempts to find the dog’s owner failed, so he decided to adopt her, instead. He even called the little one Daisy. And since that moment, the dog’s life has changed.
“She showed up on our doorstep. We immediately brought her in and gave her food and water, then took her to the vet for a checkup,” the president of the team told The Dodo. “It’s not something we planned, but now we can’t imagine things without her.”
After a short visit to the vet, Daisy proved to be in great health condition. “It was just meant to be that we’d have a team dog as part of our staff,” Orton told the team’s website. “We took Daisy to the vet and aside from being hungry and dehydrated, she was in pretty good health.”
Daisy has not only been adopted but she also got a job as part of the baseball team. The turned into the team’s unofficial mascot. And she stole the fans hearts since day one. “People have been coming in just to see her. She already has so many fans,” Mr. Orton said.

The Savannah Bananas’ president hopes Daisy would become the bat dog, the team has so much need. “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 or just coach first base, but as she grows, she’ll be a fixture at the ballpark,” he said.
