Police Find Amazon Reviews Left By Alleged Killer

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

Police in South Carolina have been investigating the life of Todd Kohlhepp — and in the middle of that search, they found disturbing details about his life.

Kohlhepp is accused of kidnapping Kala Brown and killing her boyfriend, and he may be linked to the deaths of up to seven people.

While looking into his activity on the internet, officials found chilling reviews on what they believe to be Kohlhepp’s Amazon account.

A four star review for a knife reads, “havne’t [sic] stabbed anyone yet… yet… but I am keeping the dream alive and when I do, it will be with a quality tool like this…”

He also appears to have left reviews for tactical gear, padlocks, targets and a shovel.

A review left for a shovel states the item is “good for hiding bodies.”

The user gave another review to high security locks, saying, “place is hotel california [sic] now.”

Despite many glowing reviews for weapons, a product the user did not enjoy was the book “A Sniper’s Guide to Hitting Your Target.”

Fraudsters Are Getting Around The New Chip Card With Another Dangerous Scam

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

You may have your holiday plans all set, gotten a head start on your holiday shopping and already dusted off your seasonal decorations — but are you prepared to protect yourself from fraudsters?

via GIPHY

An estimated 25.6 million adults in the U.S., or about 10.8 percent of the adult population, were fraud victims in 2011, according to the FTC. And that number is rising as scammers tap into technology to steal personal information.

via GIPHY

While many people breathed a sigh of relief when banks began rolling out EMV chip cards for their increased security, that doesn’t mean you should ease up on your personal awareness, especially around the high-traffic holiday season.

via GIPHY

“Since the rollout of EMV chip cards, which are more secure than non-chip cards, we’ve been seeing a significant shift from credit card fraud to scams involving identity theft,” Mohamad Tayba, Alliant Credit Union’s fraud manager and certified fraud examiner, said.

via GIPHY

What’s even scarier, some fraudsters will hold onto your information, and wait until the victim or financial institution has its guard down.

These Are 6 Reasons Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Chose This Specific Wedding Date And Location

The Royal Wedding is fast approaching us and unlike many Royal Weddings, this one isn’t going to be very traditional. The couple have really made their wedding much more unique than previous ones, and nobody seems to mind.

I’m surprised we haven’t heard from a long lost uncle that doesn’t approve, but I guess this isn’t a Lifetime movie. The following are a few different traits that make this Royal Wedding a bit different than past ones so enjoy!

1. Windsor Castle is particularly special to the royal family.

View this post on Instagram

#windsorcastle #england

A post shared by Rodrigo Caceres (@algominimo) on

The wedding will take place on May 19, 2018 at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. Windsor is actually the Queen’s favorite weekend getaway destination and it’s only a half hour away from London. Yes this could be a reason why the couple chose it, but theres another reason too.

Kensington Palace communications secretary Jason Knauf said that Windsor is “a very special place” that the couple frequented many times while they were dating. So it makes sense that Harry and Meghan would want a familiar setting for their wedding day.

2. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle want a relatively small wedding.

via GIPHY

When you or I say they want a small wedding, we might mean less than 100 people. Even though St. George’s is classified as a ‘chapel,’ it seats way more than that. It can fit around 800 people so that’s what small looks like if you are in line for the throne.

In comparison, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding was held at Westminster Abbey which can hold 2,000 wedding guests.

3. Breaking tradition with the date…

via GIPHY

Normally, according to the Daily Mirror, Royal Wedding dates are usually on a weekday. I’m guessing since this couple isn’t that ‘traditional’ is why they won’t be doing that. May 19, 2018 is a Saturday which is more of a Western tradition that Markle might have been pushing for.

William married Kate Middleton on a Friday and William and Harry’s parents were married on July 29, 1981 which was a Wednesday.

4. One tradition that isn’t being broken is that this will be a religious wedding.

via GIPHY

One reason it seems that the couple went with St. George’s Chapel, at the Windsor Castle is because they wanted a religious wedding. That’s what the Archbishop of Canterbury says that the couple requested.

Fun fact, the first wedding ceremony that took place at St. George’s Chapel was King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra’s wedding back in 1863.

5. Honeymoon weather!

via GIPHY

Who doesn’t want amazing weather to celebrate a life together? This one isn’t really a surprise but all of the couple’s favorite destinations seem to be in good weather this time of year.

The Lonely Planet is guessing that the couple might be heading to Botswana which is where they have traveled to in the past. A few other guesses seem to include Seychelles, Greece or even Canada.

6. And perhaps the weirdest one of all, the date falls at the end of banana season.

via GIPHY

Banana season? Is this couple secretly minions looking to steal the queen’s crown? Perhaps but it is also possible that they want a banana-flavored wedding cake at their wedding. Traditionally it’s a fruit-cake, but honestly both sound awful, so if you are going it might be a BYOC (bring your own cake) situation.

You Can’t Unsee This Photo Of A Completely Shaven Chewbacca

I haven’t seen much in life that would make someone like Han Solo speechless, but today that changed drastically. Now to be honest I don’t think I’ve ever thought what would make Han have a lack for words. I’m guessing things like Princess Leia taking a selfie with Darth Vader, Luke getting it on with Jar Jar Binks and Chewbacca shaving all his hair off would make the man go silent.

Sadly, the latter part of that is coming to fruition because some crazy artist made it come true.

Gautam Trivedi from New Delhi made a rendering of the beloved Star Wars character and honestly it’s pretty unsettling…

Yeah he does look like he could hit the beaches this summer, but I’m not sure children would love him as much as when he is covered with hair.

According to Looper, here’s how George Lucas originally came up with the furry guy:

“The stories are all true. I had a large dog named Indiana. A Malamute, an Alaskan Malamute, and he would ride around in the car, in the front seat. Not driving. I loved that image.

When he sat in the car, he was bigger than I was. That’s where I said, ‘That would be a fun character for Star Wars.'”

Now when people saw the outlandishly ugly shaven Chewie, they kind of lost their minds…

https://twitter.com/Leandro_Assis13/status/989613533343174656

And this one where I’m glad Ron clarified what he was saying…

Some people couldn’t get the nose to compare and to be honest I’m with them. Either make this rendering as real as possible or nothing at all! Really I’m cool with the last option though…

Let’s relive the first time we ever saw Chewbacca, in the original Star Wars movie from 1977.

36 Of The Most Outrageous Reactions To Kanye West Saying “Slavery Was A Choice”

Unless you were living under a rock recently, you might have heard that Kanye West has been tweeting more than Donald Trump. Yeah it’s a crazy time here in 2018 and if you are a time traveler you should just move on because we have nothing to offer you in this year.

Anyways, this might be the most 2018 story of the year because it involves an argument between Kanye West and some random TMZ dude. You can watch the video below to see the full conversation but Kanye eventually says:

“When you hear about slavery for 400 years — for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you were there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?”

People’s minds literally exploded after hearing this. So I took to Twitter and found the best tweets and yeah each one gets better than the last.

One Of The Rarest Orangutans In The World Just Got Her Own Island To Keep Her Safe

Poaching seems like it should be a problem that should have been taken care of before 2018. Sadly it’s still a thing, no matter how many poachers get caught. So when there is a shortage of certain types of animals in the world, drastic measures must be taken to protect them.

With that said, I don’t think I’ve ever heard of anything as drastic as what is having to be done for Alba the Bornean orangutan. She doesn’t see herself as any different than the rest of her orangutan friends, but if she was in the wild poachers would find her instantly due to her snow white fur. That’s why the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation is not stopping at anything to help Alba.

Image Via Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

She’s actually the only albino orangutan in existence (that we know of, maybe Bigfoot is hiding another one). She was stolen from the wild the year ago, and that’s when the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation stepped in. They heard about her story and had to go in and saved her.

Due to her being albino, Alba is more likely to get sicknesses like skin disease, vision loss and poor hearing. So what is the foundation doing to prevent all that? Oh you know just put her in a club with Richard Branson and Australia, and yes that’s the “We own an island” club.

Image Via Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

The foundation is raising $80,000 to do such a thing. If she was to go back to the wild, they would just put her at risk to be thrown into a cage again. They don’t want that.

SEE ALSO: Thanks To Hunters, Giraffes Are The Next Animal To Go On The Endangered Species List
When word spread of Alba, the money was quickly raised. It only took six months for this to become a reality. Soon, Alba and three of her orange-haired friends will take a one way trip to the sanctuary island.

Image Via Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

Nico Hermanu, who is the communications officer for the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, said to The Dodo:

“The new forest-island for Alba will be secured 24/7 by security staff patrolling the island regularly.

The sanctuary initiative also involves cooperation from the local government and communities. This way, we can safely say that Alba should be well-protected in her new forest-island.”

Image Via Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

Alba’s mother was probably killed which led to Alba getting poached at just 5-years-old. Thankfully that was enough time for her to learn how to survive in a forest in the wild. If that hadn’t happen this island sanctuary wouldn’t be possible.

Image Via Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation

Hermanu continued on, saying:

“Looking at her, she is just as wild as other semi-wild orangutans we put her with.”

So her and her friends will be safe and sound away from the poachers. Too bad this isn’t an option when it comes to other almost extinct animals…

6 Easy Tricks To Speed Up Your Home Wifi That Won’t Cost You A Penny

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

Over 3.2 billion people are connected to the internet. With so many people logged on, sometimes finding a strong internet connection can be difficult. Try these easy tips to boost up the wi-fi connection in your house.

1. Reboot your router

Rebooting your router is an easy go-to fix to increase some speed. Resetting allows your internet to calibrate for a refreshed connection. Set up an automatic schedule to restart once a day or once a week.

via GIPHY

2. Protect your password

Protecting your internet connection with a password can easily help speed up connection. Keep an eye out for the number of connected devices to your wifi. The more devices the slower your connection.

via GIPHY

3. Use an empty beer can as a makeshift antenna

A reflective case can eliminate signals from other electronic devices. Cut the top and bottom of a beer can place the metal sheet around the antenna of your router. The signal should increase speed while protecting your router from other signals

via GIPHY

4. Check that your router is connected to the master socket.

This socket is the best possible outlet to plug your router in. It will give you the best connection possible.

via GIPHY

5. Turn off unused electronics.

If you have other electronics such as your lamp, TV and or other consoles make sure to unplug those for a faster internet connection.

via GIPHY

6. Place your router in the perfect space

The perfect area to place your router is in the center of your home. Having your router pointing up in a free space helps send signals upwards. Avoid putting it in a place where there are additional walls and furniture.

Shuttered Island: Disney’s Mysterious Abandoned Attraction

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

We’re gonna start this like most good stories: Once upon a time, there was an island, near Orlando, Florida, owned by Walt Disney. Want to go explore?

Disney’s Treasure Island attraction opened in 1974 and housed cool wildlife like parrots, flamingos and lemurs.

But now, our story turns more mysterious than a dinglehopper was to Ariel. Disney’s Treasure Island — which was later renamed Discovery Island — closed in 1999, and no one seems to know why.

Mental Floss theorizes it closed because the super-popular attraction Animal Kingdom opened in 1998 in the same park. It’s kind of the same thing, but the article says it’s a “bigger-and-better zoological park.”

Although, according to an archived 1989 Orlando Sentinel article, the older 11-acre attraction wasn’t without controversy:

“A two-month investigation resulted in 16 state and federal charges filed … most dealing with the death of vultures which were crammed into a tiny, overheated shed for days with limited food and water.”

Image Via unnormalized/Flickr

The Walt Disney Company pleaded not guilty to charges and settled out of court. The attraction was reportedly not that popular, either, which would give credence to Animal Kingdom’s popularity ultimately closing it down.

So, fans have been missing out on the island for more than 15 years now. And Disney has neglected its old attraction.

Although rumors spread that the island would be repurposed with a theme from the “Lost” TV show.

View this post on Instagram

#abandoneddisney #discoveryisland

A post shared by Alyssa Talbot (@alyssatalbot) on

And another said it would be turned into Myst Island, based off the “Myst” PC game.

That last one sounds cool, but neither rumor became reality, and the island just sat there. Years after it closed, a blogger explored the abandoned island.

And even though this blog post was written six years ago, it has recentlyreappeared in headlines.

The blogger actually swam onto the island to avoid getting caught. He found the lights were still on and the old attraction had not been maintained.

Image Via unnormalized/Flickr

That’s creepier than the scene where Snow White is lost in the woods.

The blogger wrote: “We were literally surrounded by what sounded like thousands of birds. … The going was pretty slow on the island due to the limited lighting, heavily overgrown paths, and disorienting animal noises.”

Here’s an idea: Maybe Disney should turn the abandoned island into an “Into the Woods” attraction.

Personal Chef Reveals What The Queen Eats In A Day

This article originally appeared and was published on AOL.com

You’d think the Queen of England would get to eat whatever she wants, when she wants. If we were the Queen of England, our daily meals would most likely be lobster and chocolate cake.

But that’s not so much the case. While the Queen is invited to all the A list events and worldwide functions, her daily diet is actually a lot simpler than we expected.

Scroll through to see the Queen’s favorite foods:

1. Breakfast: Tea (with milk and no sugar) and biscuits

via GIPHY

2. Breakfast: Special K cereal with fruit, and the occasional toast or omelette

via GIPHY

3. Pre-Lunch: A “tipple of gin and aperitif Dubonnet”

via GIPHY

4. Lunch: Salad with grilled chicken. She has a strict no pasta or rice.

via GIPHY

5. Afternoon Snack: Tea with finger sandwiches or biscuits

via GIPHY

6. Dinner: Beef, salmon with mushrooms

via GIPHY

According to her former personal chef, Queen Elizabeth used to read through a menu only twice a week, giving him time to source the ingredients from her farms. Unlike Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth isn’t a “foodie” — in fact, what she eats in a day is actually quite similar to any normal person.

Poor Stray Dog Snuggles Up To A Giant Teddy Bear Until Someone Finally Rescued Him

Anyone who abandons their dog needs to go to jail. There needs to be a law and we need to make that happen. Let’s take a look at change.org and see if there’s a petition out there.

Anyways, this doggo either was abandoned or just got lost, and he was just hanging out, waiting to be saved. Who was his savior? It was Kourtnee Blount who is another independent dog rescuer who was just driving through a random neighborhood in Montgomery, Texas.

That’s when she found a dog that was cuddling a giant teddy bear that you find at every Walgreens at Valentine’s Day.

Image Via Kourtnee Blount

Kourtnee talked to The Dodo and said:

“As I turned the corner, I saw him lying there with the bear. I believe he pulled it out of someone’s trash because there was a lot of other trash scattered around him. It broke my heart. It was so sad”

Kourtnee checked around the neighborhood because it was known that some people let there dogs off the leash a lot there. But she got done asking around and came up empty. Nobody claimed him.

Once she got home, she posted pictures all over Facebook of the cute pup cuddling with his bear. Eventually, Destiny Swatzel responded and said she would go and rescue the struggling doggo. She is also an independent dog rescuer. Once she got there, she was scared that she might have not gotten there in time.

Image Via Kourtnee Blount

Destiny told The Dodo:

“I went looking for him on Monday and found him lying in the middle of the road. I honestly thought he was dead and went into panic mode.”

Once she approached Teddy (which he was later named appropriately), he lifted his head up and he was living thank goodness.

Destiny went onto say:

“I whistled for him to come to me. Sweet little guy walked right up to me and let me slip a leash around him.”

She decided against taking the teddy bear since it was looking like it had been dragged through the muck for awhile. Maybe his next owner will get him a big bear he can cuddle with later though.

Destiny Swatzel

The poor guy didn’t have a micro chip, which is super important if you don’t have one for your own dog. It can make sure you never lose your dog and I highly recommend it.

Once she got Teddy in the car, he wasn’t in good shapes. She recalled:

“While in the car, he threw up chicken bones, pieces of plastic, rocks and leaves. He clearly had been surviving on the streets.”

The two got to Destiny’s home and she fed him a hearty meal and gave him a much-needed flea bath. The next day she took him to another rescuer, Mary St. Dizier. Yes that is THREE rescuers that helped out Teddy.

Once Mary saw him, she knew he’d stay with her forever though, saying:

“I cried. I knew he was staying with me.”

Image Via Mary St. Dizier

There’s really only one problem, Mary changed Teddy’s name to Blue and I feel like that’s just wrong. But she concluded:

“He’s doing very well. He’s a sweet, well-behaved dog. He’s a lovable little baby.

This Girl’s “Inappropriate” Prom Dress Is Causing A Huge Backlash On Twitter

Oh Prom. It’s a night of wonder for high school students, and pretty much supposed to be “the best night of their lives” if you’ve watched any high school prom movie. It seems as though this teen girl didn’t even get to the dance floor before the drame started for her though.

Usually when you read titles that start with “This Girl’s “Inappropriate” Prom Dress…” it’s something to do with too much skin showing. Not this time ladies and gentleman!

Keziah, which is her Twitter name or maybe her real name who knows, is at the center of this controversy. She posted these photos on Twitter where she is wearing a cheongsam, aka a qipao, aka a traditional Chinese dress.

A lot of Twitter users were mad about how Keziah is not Chinese though, and one Twitter user replied saying, “My culture is not your goddamn prom dress.”

He then went on bit of a rant…

But as the internet turns, people were divided on the subject and some other Twitter users praised Keziah.

But back to “Jere_Bare,” shall we? Honestly I don’t really buy this kid knew anything about a Qipao before doing a quick Wikipedia search. His Twitter rant continued after the previous tweets saying:

“I’m proud of my culture, including the extreme barriers marginalised people within that culture have had to overcome those obstacles.

For it to simply be subject to American consumerism and cater to a white audience, is parallel to colonial ideology.”

Many people responded to little Jere_Bare with things like:

“I’ve seen all kinds of people wearing jeans who have no cultural links with the American West. They just like the look. I don’t have a problem with that. Do you?”

“You don’t have to be a poc to have a culture. Race and culture aren’t really connected at all. I’m Irish. On our national day people go around in fake red beards and exaggerated clothing of what they think traditional clothing is here.”

A few other people called Jeremy out for being a racist himself, and they have a point…

And if Keziah was being racist with wearing the Qipao, then what’s going on in Jeremy’s Twitter pic?

Eventually Keziah came back and responded to the controversy she had started, even though she was just trying to have a fun night at Prom…

She said:

“To everyone causing so much negativity: I mean no disrespect to the Chinese culture.

I’m simply showing my appreciation to their culture. I’m not deleting my post because I’ve done nothing but show my love for the culture. It’s a… dress. And it’s beautiful.”

And then she concluded:

“I love and appreciate diversity and other cultures. I mean no hate. I love everyone ❤️”

Russian Artist Depicts Some Of The Funniest Problems That Women Have Every Damn Day

Russian Artist Anastasia ‘Stushona’ Ivanova finds the everyday struggles women have and illustrates them in painstakingly perfect way. Surprisingly she has only been making comics for about eight months but it looks like it’s been years.

She talked to Bored Panda and said:

“The character is my alter ego. It’s a reflective girl who finds non-standard ways of solving problems.

I draw topics that bother me. Through comics, I express my attitude towards the world. [I believe that] self-irony is the best way to deal with troubles.”

Take a look and I have a feeling you will be able to relate to some of these pretty easily.

21 Heartwarming Facts That Will Make You Fall In Love With Mr. Rogers All Over Again

I’m not sure about you, but I remember coming home from school and my mom throwing Mr. Rogers on for me. It was a staple of mine and many childhoods around the world, and it’s some of these facts just will cement his amazing legacy.

So sit back and have fun learning about our favorite neighbor, Mr. Rogers.

1. Over the years, he talked to kids about their feelings, covering topics as varied as why kids shouldn’t be afraid of haircuts, or the bathroom drain (because you won’t fit), to bigger issues like divorce and war.

via GIPHY

2. When he was younger, Rogers was so disappointed with children’s TV that it inspired him to find “some way of using this fabulous medium to be of nurture to those who would watch and listen.”

via GIPHY

3. Those shoes were store bought, by the way, but every one of the cardigans Mr. Rogers wore on his show was knit by his mother.

via GIPHY

4. Mr. Rogers thought it would be great to have the man behind the Big Bird costume reveal himself, but Big Bird refused to be on the show.

5. Mr. Rogers could start to feel anxious and overwhelmed, and when he did, he liked to play the chords to the show’s theme song on the piano on set in order to calm himself.

via GIPHY

6. Mr. Rogers was an Ivy League dropout. He completed his freshman year at Dartmouth, and then transferred to Rollins College so he could get a degree in music.

7. There were rumors that Mr. Rogers only wore sweaters to cover up the tattoos on his arms. These are all untrue. He was never in the army, never shot anyone, and never had any tattoos.

8. Along with being a guest on the show, Koko the gorilla was an avid watcher of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. She even got upset after hearing of his death.

via GIPHY

9. Mr. Rogers was fascinated by the number 143, saying it stood for “I love you.”

10. Speaking of 143, Mr. Rogers watched his weight very closely. And he’d like to weigh exactly 143 lbs

11. Mr. Rogers once made a guest appearance on Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as a pastor’s mentor.

12. In 2002, one year before his death, Fred Rogers received the Presidential Medal of Freedom for “a career that demonstrates the importance of kindness, compassion, and learning.”

via GIPHY

13. Before becoming famous, Michael Keaton was a crew member on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. He even said that Fred Rogers was “one of the nicest, authentically-good people you’ve ever met.”

14. In the opening sequence of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, the stoplight is always on yellow. That’s a reminder to kids and parents to slow down a little.

via GIPHY

15. The first time Eddie Murphy met Mr. Rogers, he couldn’t stop himself from giving the guy a big hug.

16. Mr. Rogers chose to donate a red sweater to The Smithsonian, because the cameras at his studio didn’t pick up the color very well.

via GIPHY

17. Mr. Rogers never threw away a single drawing or letter that a child sent to him.

18. One of those letters was from a girl who was blind who was worried that the fish were hungry. So after that, Mr. Rogers always announced out loud that he was feeding his fish.

via GIPHY

19. He also helped write the lyrics for some of the most famous songs that were sung on the show.

via GIPHY

20. Mr. Rogers liked to name some of the characters in his show after important people in his life. The mailman, Fred McFeely, was named after his grandfather.

21. And lastly, he was actually color blind (aka something we have in common).

Abandoned Dog Finds A Friend At A Gas Station And It Leads To Saving His Life

You have to always be ready for a dog to show up in your life. I’ve learned that driving a back-country road when a dog hopped out in front of my car, wagging his tail.

That seems to be the case of Shannon Ackerman when she was filling up for gas one day in Missouri City, Texas. The ironic part is that Shannon had just rescued a different dog along with her two husky puppies. That’s when she received a big, wet surprise.

Shannon talked to The Dodo and said:

“As soon as I started pumping gas, I felt something lick me on the back of my knee, which scared me.

When I looked down, this sweet, sad German shepherd, who appeared to have just had a litter, was looking up at me with a look on her face like, ‘Can you please help me?”

Shannon looked around the gas station and yelled to see if anyone had misplaced their doggo. Shannon told the Dodo though, “Of course, nobody said anything.”

She also spoke to the gas station owner who said that he saw someone dump the dog and speed away before anyone could say anything. The German Shepard who was eventually named Mercy, was crying while Shannon was trying to figure out what to do.

“It just broke my heart” – Shannon Ackerman

Shannon had to figure some solution out since she couldn’t take Mercy in her car due to the other doggos inside. So she thought quickly and headed back to where she originally rescued her last pups. There she spoke to Whitney Hartman who was another independent dog rescuer and told her about Mercy at the gas station.

Hartman said, “She told me there was a German shepherd mom in the [gas station] parking lot, whining and trying to get into her car. Of course, I couldn’t leave her there, so I drove over.”

Once Whitney opened her car door, Mercy jumped right in. She was just happy to have someone that wanted her around!

Mercy had no microchip so they couldn’t track the owner who abandoned poor Mercy. Hartman went onto say, “She was so sweet and smart. She kept nudging my hand to get love.”

Whitney took Mercy back to her house to feed her and clean her up a little. The next day she took Mercy to a foster home with a rescue group, Sauver Des Chiens, who specialize in German Shepards.

Courtney Manske who is the communications director spoke to The Dodo also and said:

“She is doing well. She’s a love and a very sweet dog. But she’s still…looking for her puppies. She’s so confused.”

They are still looking for her puppies, which also means the person that abandoned sweet Mercy at the gas station. They are looking over Craigslist and Facebook to see of any signs of recent German Shepard puppies pop up.

Manske concluded:

“Mercy would love a forever home where she can be showered with all the love and care she deserves, and where she will never have to worry about being thrown out like trash ever again.”
