Update 3/14/14: A sad update share about Manny - please click here to learn more.
On Thursday morning, a plea was issued for a senior Labrador retriever named "Manny," who was surrendered to the Los Angeles County Animal Care and Control in Lancaster, Calif., on March 10.
The image of his bewildered face, coupled with a video of him quaking on his bed, spurred thousands to network on his behalf.
Manny is now safe...the elderly dog, who was given up by his former family, has been pulled from the animal control facility by the rescue organization, A Purposeful Rescue.
The rescue agency stated:
Manny went right inside his temp foster mama's house, put his head on the dog bed and went right to sleep. Thank you to the village who rallied around this old man. He will see a vet tomorrow and have a full senior panel done and get a bath and a brush! For now, we just wish him the most peaceful sleep any dog could ever hope to get.
No more fear, no more anxiety...Manny can rest easy tonight.
