If you've tuned into The Today Show this week then you've probably noticed there is a new member of the NBC morning show family, an adorable puppy! The puppy with a purpose will be staying with the show for the next 16 months while he trains to become a guide dog. The Today Show introduced their new family member to viewers yesterday and asked for their help in selecting a name for the puppy.
Of the list of options viewers could take to Twitter to cast their vote. The winning name with over 80,000 votes was Wrangler. Host, Carson Daily, announced the name live on air during Thursday’s show. Wrangler was gifted a collar bearing his new namesake. Wrangler’s official Twitter account @WranglerTODAY has also been created for fans to follow his adventures. Judging by his current 10,000 plus following it is likely that Wrangler is going to be one popular pup!
In addition to his training, Wrangler will be making several appearances on the show throughout the year and be sure to look for him in a cameo in the show’s upcoming Super Bowl 2015 ad.
Welcome to Today Wrangler!
