    I am writing concerning my parents, Ted and Betty Goodlett, Girl the dog, and Spencer County Dog Pound. Girl has now been picked up twice within three days by a woman from the pound.
    Girl was dropped at my parent’s house when she was a puppy. She was at the end of her young life of being a Pit Bull; the owners were going to have her put down. My father is a farmer, a retired navy veteran; a man that strongly believes in his freedom along with his animals.

From my observation, they not only worked in a very professional manner, but in a safe and expedient manner.
