Angel Angel, as this sweet girl was dubbed, was burned by a blowtorch held to her head the summer. She’s now been recovered for months but still sits waiting for someone to give her the love and forever home she so wants and needs and deserves.

When her story first came to light, help and donations poured in but now that it has faded from the limelight, the most important thing she needs seems to be out of reach, a home of her own.

Nashville singer Dean Miller, son of late country great Roger Miller, has made it his holiday mission to get Angel, the dog badly burned over the summer, adopted.

Teenagers burned the puppy with a blow-torch in July. Most of her ears and scalp hair are missing.

Miller is now a dog trainer and said it is hard to see angel still in the Metro pound all these months later.

He said, “What I found is that she had all this publicity and all this stuff and people donated money to help her medically. But nobody came forward to say, I’m going to do the hard part of taking care of her.”

Miller said it is actually not that hard.

Angel needs to stay indoors, and the puppy needs heavy sunscreen when outside.

Angel also needs eye drops twice a day. (WKRN)

Miller has been working with her to test her temperment and get her more socialized and used to being around people.

She’s been through so much already and asks for so little.  Do you have room in your heart and home to be an ‘angel’ to this sweet girl who needs one so badly?  You can be assured of lifelong love and devotion only a dog can bring.

The Metro Animal Shelter is located at 5125 Harding Place in Nashville and can be reached at 862-7928.
