A Wisconsin rescue dog has a new, loving home -- all because of the unusual name shelter employees bestowed upon him.

A three-year-old, 80-pound coon hound named "L.L. Bean" was recently featured on a local television station's "Pet of the Day" segment, which caught the eye of an employee from L.L. Bean's corporate office in Maine. The Dunn County Humane Society in Wisconsin had been unable to find a home for the dog for more than a year -- until word of his existence got around the L.L. Bean offices.

Four applications were soon submitted for L.L. Bean, but it was Pam Burt of Windham, Maine, a customer service representative, who was chosen to welcome the hound into her home next month.

She told the local TV station, "I fell in love with L.L. Bean as soon as I read the story and saw his picture. My family can't wait to get him."

Employees at L.L. Bean's Maine offices collected more than $800 to pay for the dog's transportation from Wisconsin to Burt's home in Maine.
