In fact, we should never forget that a little bit of love can go a long way, and that it’s sometimes all it takes to transform a shy puppy into a loving, trusting companion. That’s exactly what happened when Sam Clarence adopted Stanley from a bully breed rescue in Christchurch, New Zealand. At the age of six months, Stanley was discovered as a stray, living with his sister and mother.

Clarence volunteered at a local shelter as a dog walker and was invited to foster one of the puppies for a few weeks. He had no idea this foster puppy would turn out to be his most devoted companion. While Clarence fell in love at first sight, Stanley did not have the same luck. He was terrified, and it took him an hour just to get out of the car.
Clarence worked with him every day, assisting him in adjusting to his new life and living situation. He developed complete trust in Clarence, to the point where the two of them were constantly touching.

As he lay behind Clarence, he’d always have at least one paw on his back. When they’re on the road, Stanley makes it a point to keep an eye on Clarence. When Clarence moves, Stanley moves with him. He is a very loving dog who expresses his emotions openly.
Stanley, hopefully, is no longer afraid. He adores his new father and is overjoyed to be given a second chance at life. Stanley has progressed from a timid, shy puppy to a gregarious, outgoing dog. He adores everyone he meets, including other dogs.
