Bubbles and her sibling Betsy are Italian Greyhound- Shepherd mixes about 4 months old. They came from a high-kill shelter in Southern Georgia. When they were initially found, they were starving to death. Despite their rough start in life, Bubbles and Betsy cannot wait to find their forever families. Bubbles and Betsy are spayed, up-to-date with their vaccinations, and micro-chipped.

Bubbles has big beautiful puppy eyes and a shimmering black coat. She is a bit shy at first, but the moment she gets comfortable, her hidden playfulness comes out. Whether in the yard or in the house, she loves to play with other dogs, and she will not back down or let her larger friends overpower her. After a long day of play, Bubbles loves nothing more than cuddling up for a well-deserved rest.

Betsy is famous for going with the flow. Whatever you're up to, she enjoys being a part of it. Betsy adores curling up beside her foster and watching TV, running in the yard, snuggling up for a nap, and hanging out with family and friends. She will be a loyal friend and will greet people with a smile when she sees them. Betsy sleeps quietly in her crate at night.  She is doing great with her housebreaking and getting better every day. Betsy is also doing well with her leash training. She loves playing with her toys and is a great eater.
