More information on Manny shortly. Manny is a 3 year old, neutered male who was brought into his vet by his owner because he has been limping.  After the initial exam it was determined that Manny pulled his ACL (maybe both) and would require surgery and serious weight loss.  Manny is 125 pounds and they were told that they really needed Manny to lose some weight to have a good outcome on the ACL (CCL) repair surgery.  At that point the owners declined to do the surgery and asked the vet to euthanize him.   Thank goodness, the vet refused, signed ownership of the dog and then called Gold Ribbon Rescue.   Manny is now in our care and initial reports are that he is fat and fabulous!  Manny has moved to a foster home where he is settling in nicely and learning to love fruits and veggies.  After he has lost weight, GRR will have ACL surgery done.  Manny is a social boy and even with an ACL injury, he can do gentle playing and go for short, easy walks
