Update 3/14/14: Sad update on Manny - click here to learn more.
An elderly, golden Labrador retriever was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control in Lancaster, Calif., on March 10, and today, he spends his days crouched on his bed, shaking in terror.
Apparently, the nine-year-old dog was left at the animal control facility because his prior owner was getting "new, younger dogs."
The senior, named "Manny," is confused and depressed...at first glance, he appears to be sleeping on the cot in his kennel run...upon a closer look, you can see that instead, his eyes are closed and he is shaking in terror.
Please take a moment to lend this betrayed dog a hand by networking his adoption information:
