Walter the 9-week old dachshund makes his week 1 pick for Bears-Packers matchup


When the Bears announced their 2019 schedule, we decided to have some puppies reveal the opponents. Now, we have taken it a step further. We have a puppy that will make weekly picks for the Bears games. 

Walter’s week 1 pick is in. The anticipation for Bears vs. Packers has been bubbling, as has the anticipation for Walter’s Pick ‘Em debut. The 9-week old dachshund was hand-selected by the scouts at NBC Sports Chicago and hails from One Tail at a Time rescue. He came from a shelter in Alabama and was transported to Chicago.  At just 7 weeks old and without his mom, he beat a deadly virus and spent some time in the doggie ER, where he healed and became strong again.

Now, Walter is ready to rumble between the well-manicured lines of Sweetness Field. He will be adoptable soon via and has two adorable sisters named Martha and Millie.

Walter will pick the games throughout the NFL season, including the playoffs and we hope that his nose follows the scent to the Bears every week, all the way to that magical game in Miami in February. Italian beef or cheese curds…what will our hungry puppy choose?  It is time for Puppy Pick ‘Em presented by Nissan.

Fun fact: his rescue name is Mitch and his stage name is Walter.
