I’m not a BARCS volunteer; I’m with a rescue

Loved your article (“Dogged Out,” Mobtown Beat, March 21). I’m not a BARCS volunteer; I’m with a rescue that used to pull dogs from BARCS. I had to stop after they sent me a vicious dog—they told me one whopper of a story about this dog’s background. They said he’d been professionally temperament tested, said he was the sweetest dog. Turns out he came from a very bad place. I was able to investigate and found his intake information from Animal Control—it was completely different from the story BARCS told me. The dog had attacked a man; at our house, in foster care, he attempted to attack me and my husband so we returned him to BARCS to be euthanized. They were furious with me for bringing the dog back to them because his death would be on their records. I will no longer pull dogs from that shelter as long as Jen Mead is in charge.
