Update 2/1/14: Melodie went to a local rescue agency called "Doggy Saviors." She is currently in foster care.

Update 1/24/14 2:00 p.m. (PST) from facility:

We truly appreciate all of your concerns over Melody, but ask that you please not call the shelter in regards to her. They are overwhelmed by answering questions about her and need to be able to do their job taking care of the entire building. She is SAFE, but plenty of our other dogs are not. Please take a look at our other albums and help us help those babies!

A young, mixed breed dog, who was impounded on Jan. 17 at the Roswell, N.M., Animal Control, is utterly terrified.

The dog, named "Melody," is just one year of age.

Melody is clearly petrified inside of the fact, she appears to be attempting to make herself disappear into the corner of her kennel run.

According to staff at the facility, this young dog is available for adoption - she is not labeled as "rescue only."

Melody could use a helping hand - she needs for someone to pull her from the animal control facility and show her that things are going to be okay.

Please take a moment to network on this frightened dog's behalf:
