From Lena:

A lot of you have been asking where Lamby is these days since he's always been the star of my gram and I've been posting pics of my poodle girls. Well, you know honesty is my jam but this one has been really heartbreaking to talk about. But I feel I have to share that last March, after four years of challenging behavior and aggression that could not be treated with training or medication or consistent loving dog ownership, Lamby went to live at an amazing professional facility in Los Angeles @matt_thezendog where an awesome person named @therealdanishay (who is educated in a rescue dog's specific trauma) loves him so hard. Lamby suffered terrible abuse as a pup that made having him in a typical home environment dangerous to him and others- we needed to be responsible to ourselves, our neighbors and especially our beloved boy.

Jack and I will miss him forever but sometimes when you love something you have to let it go (especially when it requires tetanus shots and stitches.) Someday I'll really write about the pain and relief of letting Lamby go off and really be Lamby, biting and peeing in his own mouth and all. There were so many lessons in it, about forgiving myself and loving with an open palm and giving in to a larger plan. Shout out to @jennikonner for listening to endless hours of Lamby pain, and especially my partner @jackantonoff for loving him even when he ruined floors and couches and our life. Jack knows what Lamby means to me and he let me come to the decision in my own time even when it made his days challenging. Susan & Karen will never be my first loves, but they are fuzzy and hilarious stuffing for the hole Lamby left and we cherish them deeply ❤️#lamby #thefirstcutisthedeepest #foreverlamb

PS If you have a similar situation, please know its possible to responsibly re-home your rescue rather than sending them back into the shelter system. It can require patience, diligence and often a financial contribution but there are solutions that leave everyone happy and safe. You will always have been your dog's first stop outside shelter life and that's beautiful.


From the Dog Shelter:

A spokesperson for BARC Shelter in Brooklyn — where Dunham adopted Lamby in January 2013 before going on to make the dog a star by detailing his adoption in a New Yorker article, showing him off in magazine spreads like Vogue, and spotlighting him on her Instagram feed — has a different story though. For starters, the pet didn’t have a long history of abuse prior to Lena bringing him home. “We checked the records for Lamby,” Robert Vazquez told Yahoo Celebrity via email. “He was ‘owner surrendered, not enough time,’ so we do not know where she got ‘multiple owners that abused the dog.’” (In her New Yorker piece from March 2013, Dunham said the dog had “three other homes, three other names, but now he’s mine mine mine.” ) At the time of his adoption by the star, the dog was just 1 “nearing 2-years-old” — and he didn’t have a history of being aggressive.

“When she adopted the dog from us, it wasn’t crazy,” Vazquez continued. “I have pictures of the dog loving on Lena and her mom, which is weird if the dog was abused. It wouldn’t be cuddling with her or be in the bed with her ‘boyfriend’ in the pages of Vogue.” (Lamby appeared with Lena in a 2014 Vogue spread, which also featuring her co-star Adam Driver. The dog, which seemed like a trained pro, was with the pair on city streets, in bed, and chilling with the pair in the bathroom.) Vazquez says he personally was there “the four times Lena visited Lamby” prior to the adoption “because I’ve been in-charge of the dogs for the last 14-15 years at BARC. If Lamby had a bad past or was abused, do you think BARC would have adopted him to Lena knowing she’s a new star and put her — or the dog — in that situation? We would have told her if the dog had issues. We are a no-kill shelter. We don’t lie about the dogs’ histories because that gets them returned — and mentally it’s not good for dogs.

The BARC rep said, “It’s just hard to believe the dog was nasty when she took Lamby to every green room with her when Girls was still a thing 4 years ago.”

She is basically human garbage who is the most whiny brat ever to grace social media, all under the guise of feminism.

For example, when Trump got elected, she gave an interview where she shared the "Trump diet" where she lost a lot of weight because she was so worried about Trump being elected. I mean, the dude's clearly a dickhead, but she's so detached from reality its hard to take her seriously.

I had a friend who took in a rescue dog who after 2 years of training and expensive private dog classes was still a complete terror who was going to eventually rip someone apart - there's no reason to submit yourself to that kind of insanity on a daily basis.

 She tried for 4 years - I say she made the right decision. Maybe she sucks at raising dogs, most people do.

It's not like she abandoned the dog in a field people! The dog's fine, she's fine, everyone's fine. 

Lena's a nut, but she can write damn good dialogue.

srry but who gives a shit its not like she left him by the side of the road

she is a lying little shit tho.

laid-to-waste
She may not have left the dog by the side of the road, but said dog was confirmed as not having aggression issues before it came into her care. Unless the dog has some sort of mental damage, that is definitely caused by shitty ownership, and as the dog has had 2 owners, and one of them gave up a dog that was able to be rehomed with no issues of aggression, I'd say Lena Dunham should never be let near a canine ever again.

Because the dog was okay
Then she had it for four years and slowly the dog became less okay and then not okay at all, more than likely because she can't take care of a dog and now she's blaming the nonexistent former owners

The whole point is that the dog wasn't any sort of a terror before meeting Lena Dunham, unless you choose to believe Lena Dunham.

I believe most people can't handle dogs and raising one properly seems very difficult.  Maybe the dog became a terror before or after,  I don't know. The dog was abandoned in the first place, so that has to say something.  Sometimes dogs just turn crazy over time.  Either way, she couldn't handle that dog so her course of action seems reasonable.  I think it's a stretch to conclude she abused the dog based on zero evidence or the shelter trying to save face. Maybe the dog was perfectly normal at the shelter and then became some psycho alpha at her house because she didn't know how to assert herself properly.

I thought only conservative trump lovers hated her. But then again I don't know much about her and never heard of that sexual assault thing. I don't think this is a big deal but I could see trump making some tweet bashing her about this.

First I am not a fan of Lena Dunham.

Second other than alledgedly lying about the reason she gave up the dog at least she took it somewhere where it can be found a new home.

Now as far as being the right thing to do I can't say that it was having lived with them for 4 years that dog is going to be traumatized and wondering where it's owner is, giving up a puppy once you realise you can't handle it is one thing but taking a dog into your home for 4 years and then getting rid of it just seems wrong I can only imagine what my dog would think if I suddenly dropped him off at a shelter after having him for 9 years.

i mean it's not just that she molested her baby sister and then bragged about it in her book, it's also that she's insufferable and presents a taylor swift-esque self-centred half-assed feminism as the last word on being a decent person

1. Pretty much the textbook "I'm not really a feminist, I just play one on TV" type who pretends to have the moral high ground by hiding behind the label of feminist. She's an actress but she's known mostly for being a terrible individual with no moral compass (she famously admitted to/bragged about molesting her little sister when they were kids and has made racist remarks about black people).

2. You're gonna hear a lot about her in the future.

I think Crab my dog be the sourest-natured dog that lives: my mother weeping, my father wailing, my sister crying, our maid howling, our cat wringing her hands, and all our house in a great perplexity, yet did not this cruel-hearted cur shed one tear. He is a stone, a very pibble stone, and has no more pity in him than a dog. A Jew would have wept to have seen our parting. Why, my grandam, having no eyes, look you, wept herself blind at my parting. Nay, I’ll show you the manner of it. This shoe is my father. No, this left shoe is my father; no, no, this left shoe is my mother. Nay, that cannot be so neither. Yes, it is so, it is so; it hath the worser sole. This shoe with the hole in it is my mother; and this my father. A vengeance on ’t, there ’tis! Now sir, this staff is my sister, for, look you, she is as white as a lily and as small as a wand. This hat is Nan, our maid. I am the dog. No, the dog is himself, and I am the dog. O, the dog is me, and I am myself. Ay, so, so. Now come I to my father: “Father, your blessing.” Now should not the shoe speak a word for weeping. Now should I kiss my father. Well, he weeps on. Now come I to my mother. O, that she could speak now like a wold woman! Well, I kiss her. Why, there ’tis; here’s my mother’s breath up and down. Now come I to my sister. Mark the moan she makes! Now the dog all this while sheds not a tear nor speaks a word. But see how I lay the dust with my tears.
