Meet Manatee! This boy is quite special to us and we are looking for an adopter who will treasure him as he deserves. Manatee was found after being hit by a car and unfortunately had to have one of his hind legs amputated. You would never know though as he gets around fantastically and does the most amazing wiggle butt dance when you come home. Manatee was heartworm positive and has completed his treatment. In his foster home, he is a sweet, loving boy who gets along great with the other dogs in the home. He does well with dogs that are larger than him but not with dogs that are smaller than him or cats. He especially loves to sleep under the covers, cuddling on the couch, and explore the yard. He can be distrustful of strangers and his adopter will need to take it slowly with meeting him and continue his training to accept strangers more positively. With what he’s been through can you blame the poor guy? Aside from those foibles, Manny is an absolute cuddle bug angel, and incredibly loyal and dedicated to his caregiver. He’s estimated to be 3 years old and is a little guy at 13lbs.
