Pemboke puppies to star in Puppy Bowl VI

By Lora Chance - email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Two puppies from Pembroke, GA will compete in the ultimate puppy showdown, Animal Planet's Puppy Bowl VI.

Sunny and Nutmeg, two female Australian Shepherd mix puppies rescued from Georgia Animal Rescue and Defence, were chosen from hundreds of entries sent in from shelters across the country.

The pups traveled to Maryland in late October with foster-mom Laura Lightle and GARD director Joy Bohannon for filming of the event.

"Both babies have since been adopted into forever homes where they can bask in their stardom and be spoiled rotten," Bohannon tells WTOC.
