Her neighbor responded to her post, “Cause we have listened to this poor dog cry for 5 days in this tiny little pen. There is no dog house, there is only muddy ground. His food was soaked. We didn’t know if anyone would be back. Our concern was for the dog.”

PETA Senior Vice President of Cruelty Investigations Daphna Nachminovitch told Radar in an exclusive statement, “Anyone who would leave a dog alone for days on end—let alone in a muddy, feces-laden cage outdoors at the mercy of the elements—lacks common sense and basic decency. Mackenzie McKee's neighbor was absolutely right to report her for abandoning and neglecting this dog. PETA hopes McKee will allow him to be adopted by a family who understands that dogs need and deserve companionship, exercise, and respect.”

This isn’t the first time Mackenzie has come under fire for her pets. In 2017, her son Gannon kissed and hugged their dead puppy. “What do you plan to do with that puppy?” she asked him in the video, as he responded, “Keep it.” She then said, “Gannon, you know the dog is dead right? You’re just going to keep a dead dog?”
