From street life to country living: Town dogs given new home

For many years now, when you would travel along Main Street in Pikeville, you would see two stray dogs making their rounds. They have been known as the “Piggly Wiggly” dogs because they spent most of their time in the parking lot, begging for food from patrons. They now have a new home in the country.

“My concern for the Piggly Wiggly dogs of Pikeville started when I would see them beg for food in the store parking lot,” said Amy Nunnally. “If they saw a regular customer leaving that they had a fondness for, they would chase the car out of the parking lot and clear down to McDonald’s.”
The dogs slept under the stars or in a cardboard box fashioned by the store’s employees, she said.

Some people had even named them, the male was known as Starsky or Bugsy, while the female was known as Mumzee.
