Lewellen says she was told she wouldn't be allowed to take in a black sable Shepherd, but wasn't told the reason.

Friends of Campbell County Animals told 6 News a policy called stray hold prohibits the shelter from releasing animals within 72 hours of their arrival in case the owner returns.

Lewellen believed the shelter was going to euthanize the animal Monday. She was fearful the dog would be needlessly put to sleep.

“I want that dog saved and they better not kill that dog,” Lewellen said. “He looks to have a skin condition, which is common from fleas or possibly some mange. We don't know.”

A spokesperson for Friends of Campbell County Animals says Lewellen has been approved to take the dog and should be given him Monday.

Lewellen says shelter's director Crumley failed to properly communicate with her about the process for in the neglected dog.

    Hey Collette! Just wondering if you’re taking an Omega 3 supplement during this pregnancy! It’s a great idea for pregnant mamas to take this, especially if you’ve had a baby within the last 3 years, because you give a huge amount of your own DHA to form baby’s brain mass, so if it’s not replenished between each pregnancy the new baby gets less 🙂

    It’s wonderful to see that you’re feeling good! And you look beautiful! <3
