Witness Accounts Could Put ‘Austin Dog Whisperer’ Behind Bars

ynn Adams may call herself the “Austin Dog Whisperer” to potential clients, but if she is convicted of cruelty to non-livestock animals in Texas, no dog may ever hear her whisper again.

Authorities issued a warrant for Adams’ arrest on Monday, Dec. 12, about four months after she was reported hoisting a puppy by its leash for a few seconds as it emptied its bowels. According to KXAN, witnesses at the Studio 6 Extended Stay Motel in Austin told police that a woman had been yelling at the dog and jerking it around a parking lot.

When officers arrived on the scene, confirming reports, they discovered Adams pulling heavily on the dog’s leash as it yelped in pain, likely from the metal pinch collar it was wearing.
