• Animal ID#: A785942
  • Dog Name: Stanley
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 7 years

I am a gentle giant, I walk well on leash – no pulling and enjoy car rides.
After about an hour on a walk, I become more relaxed and notice things like squirrels and small dogs. I am easy to redirect. I am excited to go out on adventures and am equally happy resting in the shade for some snuggles.

Here’s what a volunteer had to say about Stanley after a fun Dog Day Out: He was so awesome!!!! Super mellow, loved the sprinklers and walked great. Love him.

The dogs are keeping us busy so we’re a little behind, please submit an application to our adoption counseling team for more information about Stanley.

Meeting Dogs at the Shelter 

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested in to a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
