To help us make a great fit for you, and any of our dogs as well, please include information about yourself(Home, family, yard/fence, work hours, other pets...) and/or use our application at Those emails will get the quickest response, we do the best we can, but if we have to follow up with an email asking you about yourself and waiting for a response, well, we have already moved on to the next email that has provided the details. We are doing the best we can to find the right home for each dog or cat, just need your help too! :) This is one of our little souls that crosses our paths that just takes a litel piece of your heart. We are looking for an extra special home for Manny, not that he has a lot of needs, but someone that will love and adore him like he has possibly not had in his life previously. He is one special boy, we adore him and are hoping to find someone that will give will share some special memories with him, give him a chance to really enjoy his life. Manny is happy with any little bit of kindness given to him, he deserves so much more in life. Manny was adopted by a family from a shelter and they had him for six years. When they returned him he had many lumpy, bumpy benign growths, was severely overweight, rotting teeth and his toe nails were grown into his pads. Who knows what happened in the home, but they were good enough to return Manny to a safe place. When he arrived at the shelter there were some health concerns, and he had a variety of tests, ultrasounds and such to investigate further and there was not anything conclusive at that point. Right now he is doing fantastic in his foster home. He is on an over the counter supplement, good food, lots of fresh air and soft beds and he seems to be enjoying his life. Manny is a silly guy, he loves to rub his little face on your legs, of course to encourage you to give him all over rubs and pets. He is a happy guy, enjoys exploring around the yard when it is nice out, he is not a fan of the super cold weather. Of course he loves his meals and snacks, does great with other dogs and loves everyone. We are waiving his adoption fee for the right family. We can share any additional possible health concerns for the future as well. Manny deserves his own happily ever after, he is 7 years old and it is time for him to live the life he deserves. Somewhere, there is a good hearted person that has the time and room to give a little fat dog a lovely life! Please email Kristine at [email protected]. Manny will go home with plenty of supplies and a favorite bed and blanket to help him settle into his new home!
