A starved puppy, covered with bite marks, was found on Sunday morning abandoned in a rain-soaked field on Hambrick Road in Tunica County, Mississippi. The tire marks from the vehicle that cruelly dumped her were still fresh; the shivering and muddy puppy was soaked to the bone from the previous night’s rainstorm.
According to Sandy Williams, director of The Tunica Humane Society, from the moment the puppy was pulled out of the cage, it was apparent she had nearly been starved to death. The heartbreaking words reflecting the raw emotions about the starved puppy’s rescue were posted on the organization’s Facebook page:
“No Words…. Only Tears….
If we didn’t live this day in and day out, I would think that these stories are made up. Sadly, they are not. They are real and they are gut-wrenching…. Every time I think I have seen it all when it comes to the treatment of these innocent animals, something else so cruel and unbelievable happens, it shatters my heart all over again. Who in the Hell does this…. I am going to do everything in my power to find out. Someone in Tunica County knows something about this…. Someone knows this little dog…”
The friendly pooch has been dubbed Melanie; she has already melted everyone’s heart with her kindness and pure innocence. Never again will she be lonely, and never again will she be abused, neglected or starved. This evening Melanie has been moved to her foster home with Elizabeth Tucker. Her new beginning can be followed here, And on a welcoming and uplifting note…
“… In this house, the humans do the bidding of the dogs. If you want ear scratches, all you have to do is crawl into their laps. If you want a nibble of bacon, you just have to look pitiful when the humans are eating. If you feel like bouncing around on the furniture, go for it. Ma just laughs and the sisters will chase you. It’s the best game ever! You’re going to be just fine from now on, little girl…”
