From commentor MadamZorba:
I’ve seen your pet rescue posts and I was wondering if you could help this one. She’s an English bull dog mix and is currently in the Memphis Animal Emergency Center. Someone picked her up as a stray and when she came in she had been so neglected that they thought she must be a senior dog. But when they examined her, she appears to be about 2 years old.
I don’t know what it is about this dog that touches me so much, maybe it’s the resignation in her eyes that seem to say that she doesn’t expect much help from humans. Or maybe it’s the gentleness that keeps her tail wagging in spite of having been so neglected by those that should have taken care of her. But what ever it is, it seems so important to save her. She is heart worm positive, so if she goes to the shelter, there is absolutely no chance that she will be adopted. I would love to take her, but my lease specifies that I can’t have any pets over 20 pounds. I hope that someone out there is willing to give her a second chance.
Time is of the essence, since the AEC is not a shelter and can only keep her for a limited number of days. If anyone in the Memphis, or surrounding area can help, please call the Animal Emergency Center at 901-323-4563.
