“This quiet doggo is very playful and loves to make new friends,” reads a NorthPaws’ press release, which notes the furry fanatic was adopted from the BC SPCA Kamloops and District Branch.

“This dog is very well-trained and can shake a paw, roll over, play fetch in the outfield and even walk on two legs.”

Send suggestions to NorthPaws’ operations manager Jamie Shinkewski by email at jshinkewski@northpawsbaseball.ca.

The NorthPaws were slated to begin play in the West Coast League in 2021, but Canadian teams were forced to withdraw due to the pandemic. Kamloops' expansion campaign is scheduled to begin next summer.

“Although puzzled by the lack of fans to play with, this friendly canine is excited to explore the Kamloops region this summer,” reads the press release.

“Keep your eyes out for your chance to meet our new friend this summer and when you do, please be gentle and don’t play too … ruff.”
