ol’ man jenkins: the truly amazing sewer rescue of an innocent old blind chihuahua

a huge thank you goes out to dusty showers for not giving up on this sweet little chihuahua

ol’ man jenkins, otherwise known as “omj,” is an old blind chihuahua that was dumped in a sewer and left for dead.  alina berry clark went to facebook pleading for someone to help.  after being told by authorities that they went out there and there was no dog in the sewer, professional humane wildlife trapper dusty showers was contacted.

after searching for over an hour and again being told by authorities there was no dog by lakeland, florida officials, dusty finally located an old man hole cover that was covered with grass and dirt. dusty dropped down into the hole filled with roaches and broken glass and crawled about 75 yards…and out of the darkness ol’ man jenkins appeared.

blind and decrepit, ol’ man jenkins was not only dumped in the sewer but also fell more than 6 feet in the darkness onto hard concrete in an area connecting the small sewer to the larger one.  this is a reminder to everyone that watches this that good samaritans do exist and we are so happy that this story has a happy ending!  we love you ol’ man jenkins!
