Stanley's a huge cuddler and will snuggle with you on couch. He likes to be right next to you for some loving. He really LOVES his people, and will be a loyal companion. He has pretty good recall. Stanley sleeps in bed with his foster family and is great. Well actually he sometimes hits all of the beds at night as Stanley wants to be sure all of the kids get night time snuggles with him. His temp foster family had kitties, and it's best if he goes into a home with out kitties as he likes to chase them. He did great at the vet's office when they drew blood for his test and trimmed his nails.... he rolled over for them for belly scratches. He loves hanging his nose outside when riding in cars.
Stanley spends some time in a crate when the family has to leave the house. He is a young dog and can get into things if not watched. His new family will need to crate him if they leave the home. Although we don't feel it's far for a dog to spend more then 5 or 6 hours at a time in a crate. He sleeps in the son's room in the bed at night and he does fabulous. I'm sure Stanley would also love to snuggle at night with his new family. Stanley has a lot of energy so would be best with an active family who can walk him and would make a fabulous running partner. If you work all day, doggy daycare would be great for him to burn off his energy as he can't be crated all day long as most young dogs shouldn't be. Please indicate which doggy daycare you will be using on your application if you will be doing that.
Stanley is very strong on a leash, and we feel he would do best in a home full a fully fenced in backyard. No electronic fences.
Stanley has a slim, long body, with very long legs so he's tall. Stanley is a very sweet, friendly boy who is strong on a leash. We think Stanley is a Doberman/Hound mix. His body, and graceful trot are very similar to a Doberman, but his nose is always on the ground when walking which is a trait of a hound.
Stanley's foster has been working with him on lash walking and he's doing much better, but his new family will need to continue to work on his leash walking. Stanley loves visitors so much he tries to jump and give everyone kisses. What is working for the jumping is when people come over we instruct them not to speak to him, not to look at him or touch him until all 4 paws are on the ground. Visitors totally ignore him until all 4 paws are on the ground. If they pet him and he jumps up, they turn around and ignore again using no language. Within a minute or two he stops jumping as he realizes he will not be getting attention, and calms down. He's a very smart boy and catches on quickly.
His current foster family has children who play with him and walk with him as well as a dog who runs around with him. Like many tall young dogs, Stanley will counter surf if not watched, and butter is his food of choice. He responds very well with a correction from a squirt bottle. His counter surfing is minimal, but his new family will need to keep an eye on him as he's just a big puppy.
Stanley's fabulous with kids, and loves them, but we feel a home with children 7+ or rough and tough younger children would be best. We just don't want little ones knocked over or upset for a dog jumping on them. He would be fabulous in a active home.
Stanley was adopted from us as a puppy back on 10-31-15. We rescued him from a high intake shelter in Kentucky after he was treated with Parvo prior to arriving to us. He arrived to us with a stub tail so we are unsure if he was born that was or cropped. Stanley was returned to us on 8-6-16 because the wife lost her job and they moved into a rental home that would only allow one pet. Since Stanley was the newest member, he got the boot. His previous family had another dog, and two children 11 and 13 who he was very good with. His current foster has other dogs who he is fabulous with and children that he loves.
Stanley is being fostered in a home in South Aurora, IL, which is where you and your family would go to meet him. All family members, including 4-legged, must be present at the meet and greet to adopt. In order to schedule a meet and greet, please submit and adoption application which can be found on-line at http://angelsonwheels.org/canine-adoption-application/ We must have an adoption application submitted and processed prior to making an arrangements for a meet and greet. Once we receive the application we will process. We are all volunteers so it can take a few days to process it. Please be patient. Thank you.
Submitting an application does not commit you to any animal, but is required prior to making arrangements for a meet and greet as all of our animals are cared for in homes. We can't schedule meet and greets until the application is submitted and approved. We don't have a building so there are no viewing hours. All of our animals are cared for in foster homes by wonderful families who volunteer their time to save these precious souls. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Although we make the best guess on the breed and size of our dogs, because they come from shelters or are strays, we can never be completely certain of the genetic makeup of the dog. Breed and weight at maturity are only guesses. All we can tell you for sure is that they are 100% RESCUED! If an animal is still posted for adoption, he/she is still available. If you see this this post, this puppy is available for adoption so there is no need to email asking about availability.
Thank you for looking at our rescued animals!
