Manny was in a shelter in South Dakota that wanted to make sure that they did not have to put him to sleep. The shelter is over-crowded and the employees there must make heart breaking decisions every day about which dogs are adoptable and which must be put down. Manny is a dog that makes people happy. He has energy to play, is nice to his dog friends, and will give his family many stories to share. We see him sitting beside his mom and dad at a little league game, cheering on his human brothers and sisters. We see him greeting the whole team with wags, kisses and high-fives. Manny is not of any designer or special breed. He doesn't even require fancy grooming. He is just a dog, looking for a family, wanting a home, and waiting patiently for those very simple things to happen.
