Submitted by Jody Fisher who saw this very frightened dog in a cage at the Memphis pound on July 28. The dog had no cage card and no ID collar. Jody continually contacted the pound to ask about the dog, whom she named Missy. Yesterday, MAS finally issued an ID number to Missy so she can now be adopted or pulled by a rescue group. This is the photo MAS posted on PetHarbor:
Missy is very scared at the pet killing facility and will probably be overlooked by adopters. During Jody’s August 4 visit to check on Missy, she asked a staff member to take the dog outside. Jody says after a short time outdoors, Missy began to relax and act like a normal dog. Jody snapped this shot:
Jody is worried about Missy because the dogs at MAS don’t get walked and Missy has already been there for a couple of weeks. If anyone is interested in adopting Missy, please visit MAS or leave a comment here. Jody will help!
