She went on to give insight into Lamby’s new life, saying, “I still support him financially and I'll always be there for him in every way but he's notably happier in his new surroundings."
The HBO star seemed particularly upset by the shelter’s implications and accusations, adding, “I hope those judging can imagine the incredible pain of letting go of your favorite creature on EARTH because you know you can't help them be healthy and happy. I would never say an unkind word about the staff of BARC, what they do is amazing and life saving for these animals- but we have different accounts of Lamby's behavior and they were not present in my home nor did they live with him for an extended period. They did not witness the consistent and responsible care I provided.”

She went on to note that of all the “micro scandals” she has endured in the public eye, this one “hurts the MOST, because of the vulnerability of letting people know Lamby and my story, and because I miss him so damn much.”
Dunham first told her fans about letting Lamby go in late June, in a touching Instagram post. Calling the decision “really heartbreaking,” Dunham revealed that, “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.”
