Jack Jr. moves in with local family
A few weeks after University officials announced that J.J. will no longer serve as Georgetown’s mascot, Jack and J.J.’s caretaker Fr. Christopher Steck selected the family that will adopt the bulldog puppy. In addition to the criteria he was considering, the family lives three miles from campus and has experience raising bulldogs. “He went there on Sunday as an experiment, and it worked so well I decided it was best for him to stay there,” Steck wrote in an email to Vox.
University spokeswoman Rachel Pugh assured students that the “tradition of a bulldog mascot at Georgetown is a cherished one, and it will continue.”
