Amber is the mama dog who was attempting to care for her dead puppy in a cage at the Memphis pound when someone there photographed the dogs and posted the photo on the internet. It is unknown why the puppy died or what happened to the rest of the litter (assuming the deceased pup was not a singleton). Amber was originally listed under ID #243786 but after a screengrab of the pound’s cruel photo was posted on the blog, she was re-listed by MAS with a new photo and a new ID (243793).
Ona from Meows and BowWows was able to get a brief video of Amber yesterday. She looks rather out of sorts, which is normal considering what she has endured at MAS, but at least they finally took the rope off her neck. Ona reports that Amber gave kisses when she put her hand up to the bars.
If you are interested in adopting Amber, please contact the pound ASAP at (901) 636-1416. If you need assistance, please leave a comment here. I am willing to do anything in my power to help get this dog out alive. I have no information on what type of vet care she may need but we have a fund that readers have donated to in order to help pets like Amber so financial assistance is available.
