His home name is "Sherman", after the tank and Connecticut icon Roger. Sherman, who took over as Handsome Dan XVII in 2007, has taken to his job with great enthusiasm and in his brief life has already been photographed with former President George Bush '48 and Sir Paul McCartney. He is very athletic, retrieves with vigor and has already raised thousands of dollars for charity.
