Barking out signals: Teddy Bridgewater plans to adopt a dog


In case you missed it on Twitter Wednesday night, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said he wants to get a dog.

No big deal, right? Sure, but Bridgewater asked his fans where he can find a dog in Minnesota and by the time he retweeted a bunch of suggestions he ended his night saying he "can't wait to visit a local shelter and adopt a dog over these next couple of days!"

Here are some of the suggestions and photos of dogs his fans provided the 22-year-old face of the Vikings' franchise. And yes, Bridgewater, not Adrian Peterson, is the face of the franchise. Just ask head coach Mike Zimmer, who is on record saying "this franchise is Teddy's."
