Gov. Dayton Gets New Dog

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Gov. Mark Dayton will welcome a new resident to his house on Sunday — a German Shepherd puppy.

Dayton met the dog for the first time on Friday.

The dog’s name is Wanamingo, but his nickname is Mingo.

Dayton’s dog Dakota died from cancer in January. Dakota was also a German Shepherd.

Mingo will be welcomed by Dayton’s other dog, Mesabi, which was a brother to Dakota.
