LL Bean Employee Adopts LL Bean The Dog

Posted Friday, December 16, 2011 --- 6:35 a.m.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A homeless dog in Wisconsin named L.L. Bean has found a new home in Maine, thanks to the company he's named after.

The Dunn County Humane Society in Wisconsin received a call from an employee at L.L. Bean's Freeport headquarters after a local TV station ran a story featuring an 80-pound Coonhound named L.L. Bean that had been in the shelter for more than a year.

The story of L.L. Bean the dog was shared on L.L. Bean's company Intranet site, and a customer service representative was chosen to be the dog's new owner.

After L.L. Bean employees later learned that transportation fees for the dog would be more than $800, they collected money to cover the cost.

L.L. Bean is expected to arrive in Maine in early January.
