Spunky was a stray living in a field for 8 months in Fresno, CA. ... The shelter that took her in named her Sissy. I thought it really didn't fit a dog that had been surviving on her own for that long. Spunky seemed to fit better. And she is living up to her name. She can be quite a handful. Loves to run and play with other dogs but can be quite bossy. And loves to chase anything that runs, squirrels, rabbits, cats, etc.
