It is nothing short of heartwarming to see a rescue dog’s first journey out of a gloomy facility. As they go for their new owner’s everlasting home, they appear to realize that they are at last secure.

These dogs usually show their thanks by bouncing their tails and grinning widely. No matter how afraid they are, one glance into their appreciative eyes gives them the assurance that they have been spared and that better days are on the horizon.

Some canines, like Stanley, seem to appreciate things more than others. A 6-month-old puppy named Stanley was discovered with his mother in an unoccupied house. The dog was taken to a shelter in the hopes of being adopted right away.

When Stanley arrived at the shelter, Sam Clarence, a volunteer dog walker with the Bull Breed Rescue in Christchurch, New Zealand, was asked to foster him for a few weeks.

Sam went to the shelter to see Stanley, but as soon as he did, he decided against fostering the boy. Instead, he was immediately certain that he would adopt him.

As soon as they connected, Sam brought Stanley home with him. Stanley had a close grip on his adoptive father’s arm the whole time they were traveling. The adorable puppy seems to be saying, “I’ll never let you go.”
Upon arriving home, it was apparent that despite developing a close bond with Sam, Stanley still harbored some concerns about how his new life would pan out. The first took him nearly an hour, and that just getting out of the car.

After safely exiting the automobile and entering his new home, he was fed, washed, and led to his cozy bed. Although this “Velcro dog” needed to be as close to his new parent as possible, Stanley quickly started to make himself at home.

Stanley is now a very content and confident dog. He likes swimming in lakes and ponds, and he and his father engage in a variety of outdoor pursuits. But he does like to be touched and cuddled. He has to keep an eye on his father, even when he is sleeping.
