My story

Stanley is a mild-mannered big boy who loves to chill out with his human friends. If anyone wants a rowdy playmate, he's glad to cooperate, but he'd rather be a laid back, calm and lazy boy who just gets their attention. Now in foster, this sweet boy is getting along nicely with his foster mom's dogs - seniors and laid back and lazy pups of various sizes. He pays no attention to her two big cats, and is well-behaved with her 15-year-old son. He has gone to the beach with his foster and was very well-mannered and behaved under her canopy. He loves going on daily walks and is pulling less on his leash. At home, he's a couch potato who enjoys naps and some playtime. He's house-trained and does well in his crate. And he can also nicely free roam the house when his foster is away. Stanley will be happy as the only pet in a home, but also can enjoy doggie and feline siblings. Because he's a big boy he'll do well with calm teenage kids who know it's best not to be rowdy with big pups. Come meet this lovable boy!
