ONE TO FOL­LOW

Modern Dog - - THE SCOOP -

Ev­ery­one loves a se­nior res­cue dog. Take, for ex­am­ple, Marnie. With 2.1 mil­lion In­sta­gram fol­low­ers, this 15-year-old Shih Tzu, famed for her ex­tremely long tongue, is one of the most pop­u­lar res­cue dogs on In­sta­gram. When she ar­rived at 11 years of age at a Con­necti­cut Animal Con­trol, she was mat­ted and un­claimed. Shel­ter work­ers nick­named her "Stinky" for her truly bad smell and it was thought she was blind in her left eye. Marnie's fam­ily adopted her any­way. A vet re­moved 14 rot­ten teeth, tak­ing care of the smell, and it turns out she wasn't blind after all! Once adopted, the cloudi­ness in her eye cleared up. A true rags to riches story.
