A truck driver was on his way to work when he saw a stray-looking dog living in a parking lot outside a warehouse. He saw the dog was all dirty and appeared to be weak, because it failed to stand up even when he called it many times.

Feeling sorry for the poor animal, the driver took it with him. Though he cannot adopt him because he is always on the road due to his job, he promised the dog to find him a home who could give him everything he needed.

The driver uploaded a photo of when he found the dog, and it garnered a nationwide attention.

This prompted Love Leo Rescue, a Los Angeles based animal rescue organization, to take the dog in. They found out that the dog was actually a Labrador and named him Larry.

He is currently eight years old and has been diagnosed with Cushing’s disease, which leads to several dysfunctions such as frequent urination, thirst, hair loss, weight gain, abnormal swelling, and changes to skin’s appearance. But, this could be managed through daily medication. The Dodo reported that Larry was abandoned by his previous owners when they moved away.

“All we want for him is a forever home. Isn’t there someone, somewhere out there that wants to give this beautiful, #goldenlab his fairytale ending?” posted Love Leo Rescue. “He prefers sleeping outside in the garden versus being confined to a crate. He would do well with another old dog that stays out of his business.”

With all the TLC he’s getting, Larry is surely feeling a whole lot better.

“When we first rescued him, he was reactive to other dogs and would growl when they got too close,” Love Leo Rescue wrote on Instagram. “Now that he’s feeling better, he’s turned into a social butterfly. To date, Larry has been kicked out of 3 foster homes (due to separation anxiety) and has 2 adopters bail on him. He deserves better than that.”

After several months later, Larry has found his fur-ever home, where he could spend his last remaining years feeling all the love he deserved.

I wish I would have had more time to dedicate to this happening, but that’s what places like @loveleorescue are for. Thank you to everyone that helped along the way, without every lil bit of help he would still be looking. Good luck Ol’ Boy. #Repost @loveleorescue with @get_repost ・・・ You guys, it’s been quite a journey. We are over the moon to announce that Larry the lab is finally home. On this cold and rainy day, Larry is curled up in a soft bed and surrounded by people who love him. As some of you know, he was discovered living in a parking lot after his family moved away and left him behind (👉🏽swipe). He slept in the dirt and strangers would toss scraps at him every now and then. He was obese and suffering from Cushing’s disease. Luckily a kind person @oldboy909 decided to do something about his situation and created a page for him. We saw his photo and knew we wanted to help. That was in June! I took a few weeks to figure out what was going on with him medically and the best course of action to manage his Cushings. We decided surgery was not an option (too risky) so we started him on medication. Larry started feeling better and in turn, became more sociable and sweet. But he had separation anxiety (can you blame the guy???). This caused him to get booted from three different foster homes. and, that it happened. He got the email that we thought Willie could be a perfect match for him. We told him about his issues and they didn’t blink an eye. He had a few accidents in the house, but still they weren’t face. They understand that he’s been through a lot and there’s a little kindness and patience. We are so happy he landed exactly where he was supposed to. Thank you to his loving humans who opened to their heart and their home to this special dog. Dogs like Larry are challenging for our rescue financially and — emotionally. Our goal is to rescue a dog from a bad situation and put them in their forever home. But sometimes, that just takes a little longer. We are very happy we were able to be part of his journey. Happy life sweet Larry
