Abandoned Dog Stood Howling For Days After Owner Drove Off
She was dropped off in the parking lot of a Sam’s Club in Memphis, Tennessee. Her owner drove away and never came back.
And for days, this dog howled.
Mary Murphy, a volunteer at Arrow Dog Rescue, was leaving Sam’s Club when she came across the howling dog. But she couldn’t one could get close enough to the dog to slip a collar around her neck. So Murphy started spending her days in the parking lot too. She would bring a chair. A book. Sometimes, even her own dog.
Then, after the dog had spent nine days in the parking lot, Murphy, with some help from the owner of a neighboring car lot, slipped a collar around her neck.
Gradually, Murphy earned the dog’s trust. And soon, the dog had a new name. Samantha. Next?
A new life. Samantha is in the care of Arrow Dog Rescue and will soon be looking for a foster home.
