Please help this dog if you have the room ! Something about this is not right - I cannot imagine how THIS dog ended up in the shelter. Would you please cross post as well.

Re: Wounded Military Dog in high kill shelter in TN

To All,

This story is bogus.

Investigations have reveiled that this dog is not a Trained MWD, not a "Wounded Warrior", not a goverment abandoned MWD, and not a trained service dog.

The person who posted this story was just trusting a facebook story she read.

No doubt this dog desirved a decent home, and no one would object to that, but misleading the public with the story that the Animal Shelter in Athen, TN posted is a shame, and a disgrace.

Shame on you !!!!!!
