Spivey is a female Italian Greyhound/Whippet mix, approximately 9 months old.  She was found as a stray in front of the southern bank, Spivey State Bank, hence she has been named Spivey. She loves to play, whether it is with another dog, child or an adult. Spivey is about 25 pounds and will not be much larger. When she jumps she looks like a pogo stick.  Spivey is up to date with her vaccinations, spayed and micro chipped.
