Kentucky's "First Dog" is symbol for winning

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Meet Tory. She joined the First Family at the Governor's Mansion shortly after Steve Beshear was elected governor. The Beshears named her Victory because of their win.

They call her Tory for short.

She's a Jack Russell mix and followed Jane Beshear around the mansion during our interview. If you visit, you're asked not to feed Tory scraps so she stays healthy.

The First Lady loves animals and tells WDRB that she has several dogs at the Beshear farm, saying they're "mostly larger dogs saved from the shelter because I know they can be hard to adopt."

The Beshears adopted Tory, who is much smaller, so they'd have a dog at the mansion while they're away from the farm during the week.
