Handsome Dan XIX

Hi I’m Handsome Dan XIX, also known as Kingman. I am the official mascot for Yale University. I was born January 2, 2021 and I was picked out of a litter of 9 Olde English Bulldogge puppies by Kassandra Haro ’18 of the Yale Visitor Center team. I couldn’t be happier with my new home!
