Bubbles got her name because of her bubbly personality. And as you will learn from her story, that bubbly personality shows the remarkable resiliency of this dog despite her many hardships. A two-year-old Pit Bull mix, Bubbles arrived at the Rowan County Animal Shelter on August 1st. Her owners were moving, so Bubbles, who was originally known as Pepper, and the family's other dog were dumped at this high-kill rural shelter. The shelter staff were very concerned about Bubbles' bulging left eye. While the family said her eye was always like that, it was obvious that Bubbles needed to see a vet immediately.
