Pet of the Day: Mannie

Posted at 11:52 AM, Apr 06, 2016

Mannie, an 8-year-old boxer-mix, was surrendered to the Maryland SPCA because his family no longer had time to spend with him.

He suffered from a bad case of gum disease that caused him pain and difficulty eating. The MD SPCA performed oral surgery on Mannie, and he has since fully healed and feels so much better.

Gentle and yet playful, Mannie is housebroken and knows many commands such as "sit," "stay," "come" and "shake." He also likes other dogs, cats and children.

Don’t miss this year’s March for the Animals on Sunday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Register here.

Mannie is a senior pet with stiff joints, so he will need to be given daily supplements to keep him feeling well.

He deserves to be adopted into a special family that will shower him with love and attention and provide him with any medical care he might need as he ages.

Mannie’s adoption fee has already been paid by a generous donor.

To meet Mannie, visit the Maryland SPCA.
