Cadbury said in their news release, Lieutenant Dan "has overcome adversity, (and) has won the hearts of America." 

The rescue pup, who was born with a deformity in his hind paws and tail that led to their eventual amputation, reached the most votes and continues to win over the hearts of animal lovers.  

Dan beat out other contestants including Ginger the hamster, Conswala the llama, Dilly Bar Dabbler the duck, and a handful of other pets.
