Your Next Best Friend: Manny

They call me Manny here at RAWL. I’m a strong, energetic lightweight, smaller dog — about 25 pounds. Apparently, I’m a mountain cur (mixed with something else, perhaps). Love that name! We mountain curs are part of our country’s history, having come to this country with European colonists who settled in Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. I’m an easy dog — good with cats and love to play with other dogs. I’m eager to find my new home and would love to meet you if you think it could be yours.

This past week two of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Road, Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
