PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates have adopted a new team dog, and he is ready to play ball!
The Pirates teamed up with Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs to provide a service dog to a military veteran.
Hi, Bucco Nation! I’m your new Pirates Pup. Follow along as I train to be a furever friend for a veteran. 💛 pic.twitter.com/Y9kPQAUzA7

Guardian angels will bring the pup to games throughout the season to engage with fans. The Pirates Pup will then head to his “furever” home with a military veteran once training is complete.
There is just one thing the Pirate Pup still needs: a name.
The team is asking fans to help name their new teammate! The names to choose from are Homer, Bucco, Rookie and Jolly.
