Our beloved Bullseye

We’re dog people – always have been. And our constant canine companion is Bullseye, our white bull terrier. You’ve probably seen Bullseye strutting down red carpets, in Target commercials and at events worldwide.

It takes a lot of poise to be Target’s mascot, but Bullseye handles the job like a pro! Last week, Bullseye took a bone down to Infineon Raceway in Sonoma for the Indy Grand Prix and cheered on Target Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon. As Franchitti and Dixon raced to fourth and fifth place, respectively, we got the chance to chat with Bullseye’s trainer.
