Top Dog Interview: Bugsy Airstream Dog

Bugsy the Airstream dog loves adventure! That might come as a surprise to anyone who knew her when she was plucked from the winter streets and brought to the pound in 2015, terrified, starving, and sickly. When she first came home, she was scared of everything outside: loud bangs, people, cars, trains, bikes – basically anything that moved or made noise. Packing a skittish beastie into an Airstream and roaming around the country didn’t make complete sense, but in each new place, she relaxed and blossomed more, and soon became a confident, expert traveler. Get to know Bugsy in our latest Top Dog interview…
