Some of you may remember the handsome Pibble type dog pictured with MAS interim director James Rogers in this article in the Memphis Daily News. I suspect the dog was chosen for the photos to try and put a positive image in the minds of the public. Like, “See, we haven’t killed EVERY dog that looks like a Pitbull!”. I wrote to the reporter at the time of publication and asked about the dog. I was told his name was Buster and no other information was known about him although the paper had received a lot of inquiries after printing his photos. I thought it was such a shame that Mr. Rogers had wasted the opportunity to promote this beautiful dog for adoption. As far as I know, neither MAS nor the “Friends” have done anything to promote Buster in the time since the article appeared. And today, he has apparently started coughing. So MAS is going to kill Buster if he’s not bailed out by 5pm.
As much as I hate to put out yet another last minute plea for a pet at MAS, the alternative is that MAS got to use Buster for self-promotion and then gets to throw him in the dumpster. Buster is not trash and he has a right to live so I’m putting this out there. If you are in the Memphis area and interested in adopting or fostering Buster (ID#238243) within the next few hours, please contact the pound directly at (901) 636-1416 or leave a comment here. I will help.
