BLACKSBURG, Va. – The pawfect mascot will soon be joining the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets.
In a Facebook post, the university introduced Stryker, who will replace Growley II once he retires at the end of the fall semester.
Growley II, an 8-year-old yellow Labrador whose call sign is Tank, has served as the corps’ faithful canine ambassador for five years.
Since Growley II arrived on campus during summer 2016 as a 3-year-old Lab, he has done nothing but bring smiles to all of Hokie Nation. Now, he’ll become an alumni pet.
