Spring is here, and that means Easter is right around the corner. 

Every year Cadbury receives thousands of applicants when casting who should be the next Cadbury Bunny. Now the chocolate company has narrowed it down to 10 finalists, one of which is a two-legged dog named “Lieutenant Dan”. 

Dan was born without his hind legs and is from New Richmond, Ohio. His owners named him after Gary Sinese's character from "Forest Gump". According to Dan’s bio he likes to wrestle, run, hike, swim and loves snacking on peanut butter.  

Meet Lieutenant Dan from New Richmond, OH. This big personality loves to show off and can’t help but make others smile and feel inspired whenever he’s around them. In his spare time, he loves to wrestle, run, hike, and swim. He unwinds after a long day with a classic treat - peanut butter! #cadburybunnytryouts #contest Visit the link in bio for official rules.
