Dale Jr. prepares to get new dog - and you won't believe the name

BY foxsports • March 6, 2015

Less than two months after mourning the loss of his beloved 10-year-old boxer, "Killer", Dale Earnhardt Jr. is ready to buy a new dog.

The Hendrick Motorsports driver revealed on Twitter Friday morning that he is moving toward the likely purchase of an Irish Setter to replace his longtime canine companion, who died in January after contracting cancer.

It seems that Earnhardt Jr. already has a name in mind for his soon-to-be-pet, too, and it's certainly not one you would expect.
