In fact, we should never forget that a little love may go a long way, and that it is sometimes all that is required to transform a hesitant puppy into an affectionate, loyal pet. That’s exactly what happened when Sam Clarence got Stanley from a bully breed rescue in Christchurch, New Zealand. Stanley was found as a stray when he was six months old, living with his sister and mother.
Clarence served at a local shelter as a dog walker and was offered to foster one of the puppies for a few weeks. He had no idea this foster puppy would turn out to be his most faithful buddy. While Clarence fell in love at first sight, Stanley did not have the same luck. He was terrified, and it took him an hour simply to get out of the automobile.
Clarence worked with him every day, supporting him in adjusting to his better beginning and living situation. He developed entire 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 move, Stanley makes it a point to keep an eye on Clarence. When Clarence moves, Stanley moves with him. He is an extremely loving dog who expresses his emotions openly.
Stanley, perhaps, is no longer terrified. 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 lively, extroverted canine. He adores everyone he meets, especially other dogs.
