Take a little trip, Take a little trip

I love this dog and I am ordering you to enlarge her photo to see her smiling face and waggy tail embiggened.
No one can adopt this dog from MAS unless they meet special requirements because the pound has mislabeled her a “Pitbull”. Let me be clear, I think it’s ridiculous for shelters to have added requirements for adopters based on breed, particularly when the alternative is the dumpster. But specifically for this dog, it’s mind-blowing idiocy.
If you want to adopt this girl, you have to have a secure 6 foot fence which must pass inspection by a Memphis ACO. I guess you need the 6 foot fence so that other dogs passing by your yard can mock this dog as she waddles along the lower third of the fence line. You also need to undergo a criminal background check. Because you might secretly be a dogfighter wanting to toss this dog into a pit. Do they have a canine version of “midget wrestling”?
Come on MAS, give this dog the chance she deserves and remove the special adoption requirements for her. And while you’re at it, stop discriminating based on breed – which you get wrong more often than not anyway. Every dog deserves a chance to live.
