Update 6/7/17: Just dropping by to say hello…I’m Betty Rubble, a beautiful, adoring and adoptable doggo. You will likely not meet a more easygoing girl than I.
I’m equally at home roughhousing with friends or cuddling with older, quieter dogs. I’ll snuggle with you in bed and on the sofa, whichever you prefer. Like I said…I’m laid back.
I am also very affectionate. I like to kiss my friends whether they are people friends or doggo friends. I just like to make others feel good and show them how much I care.
Have I mentioned my manners? They are impeccable! I’m crate-trained and great on a leash. I’m not going to pull you in one direction or another. As long as we’re not going to the vet or the groomer I’m happy to walk right beside you wherever you’re headed.
I’ve been around the block a few times. When you hit 10-years old you can say that. These days I enjoy spending time lying in the sun, getting my belly rubbed and watching the neighbors go about their business. Who knows? Maybe I’m part busybody. Let’s watch your neighborhood together.
Betty Rubble is a sweet old soul who has been on the streets of Memphis for many many years. Doctors estimate that she is at least 6 years old and was heavily heartworm positive. She fought through the treatment is living a happy and healthy life in her wonderful foster home!
Streetdog was alerted about Betty's circumstances by some employees at a vet's office. Betty Rubble and her 4 puppies were found in a small cave near some railroad tracks seeking shelter from the cold and rain. The founders of Streetdog Foundation risked their lives to go into the cave in the middle of the night promising Betty and her four babies that all would be ok. After a long night, everyone was safely and successfully rescued and taken to the vet's office to get checked out. Betty has lost 1/2 of tail at some point in her life and most of her teeth but otherwise is in great physical condition. She gained enough weight to start her heartworm treatment and is currently loving life in her foster home with her foster fur siblings and a human baby foster brother.
Betty Rubble has the sweetest personality and is gentle. She loves to play and smile and run in the yard. But most of all she loves to be loved.
