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.
