This dog’s cage card indicates he’s been at MAS since March 12. It does not indicate if he has received any veterinary treatment for what appears to be possibly a burst abscess on his rear leg or his cough. There is no way of knowing if his cough is the result of heartworms, a virus or of being slung like a bag of garbage by a metal noose around his neck. He does not look well in this brief clip. I don’t know who qualified him to be housed in “healthy hold” – a vet? One of the animal abusers MAS employs? The guy who loads up the 8 bins of dead pets every day?
I have no information on what MAS plans to do with this dog but he is coughing, has a leg in need of vet care, looks somewhat similar to a Pitbull, and his mandatory hold period has expired. MAS has demonstrated repeatedly that any one of these “reasons” is enough to kill. Let’s be frank, a pound doesn’t rack up a body count like MAS’ without being extremely liberal with its killing excuses. I fear this dog will be targeted for killing in short order.
If anyone is able to foster this dog or is interested in adopting, please contact MAS at (901) 636-1416 or leave a comment here. I will help.
Thank you Ona for filming this dog.
