Butler Blue

It’s a dog’s life at Butler—and a pretty good one, at that.

Loves to cuddle. Hates to be ignored. Always up for a Benebone. Introducing Butler Blue IV, our mascot.

Meet our mascot, Blue IV.

Born on October 30, 2019 at Fall Creek Place Animal Clinic, Butler Blue IV represents a whole new era in the Butler Blue Live Mascot program. He was delivered by Dr. Kurt Phillips ’92—by way of breeders Jodi and Cameron Madaj—and goes about his business under the care of handler Evan Krauss ’16, and his wife, Kennedy.

For inquiring minds, we’ve been known as the “Bulldogs” since 1919 but didn’t have an official live mascot until 2000. Learn more below about our (relatively) new pup on the block Butler Blue IV, and flip back through the program’s pedigreed past.
