    Great message — thanks for being a voice for these loving animals!ReplyCancel

  • tee4tiawhen I see images of dogs at shelters, it’s so heartbreaking and overwhelming to me. But thanks for reminding me that if we all do just one thing, whatever it is, we can make a difference. Thanks for sharing this.ReplyCancel

  • utskiWow… powerful! a hanky is an understatement…

    Nice to see the update that he is wagging his tail more and has been neutered… that moment of his first little tail wag was too precious.
    I have added a link to the video on my facebook as well. I hope someday all of the pets will have loving homes; till then I will repeat these messages… spay & neuter your pets! Adopt a pet!

  • KamalaAww man, that was touching. He seems soooo sweet and he reminds me of so many dogs I’ve seen in the shelters; so messed up yet so forgiving. Thanks for posting this.ReplyCancel

  • illonathank you so much, everyone, for taking the time to view and comment on this video.ReplyCancel

  • Stephanie HornerHeartwarming and heartbreaking. I have been thinking about this sweet guy all day.ReplyCancel

  • EmilyIt’s awesome that you posted this video! Stanley is being brought up to be placed into a Vancouver Island based rescue. They asked Adam and I if we would foster him, but there are so many people who want to take him as a foster that he’ll most likely be going to my friend Michelle.

    Right now Stanley is at a vet in California. He’s been undergoing treatment for his mange and he’s been neutered. He should be heading up here in a couple weeks, and, if we don’t take him, we’ll be having regular play dates with Daisy and Olive, so I’ll be able to post some update videos on flickr for you!

    I have the password/login for the webcam to his kennel at the vet so we can watch him all day. He mostly sleeps, and when he’s not sleeping he’s wagging his tail at the vet techs who change his blanket and water.ReplyCancel

  • MargaretOK Illona, I can hardly see my keyboard, what with the tears and all. But, what a great video, and Stanley’s story is well worth the tissues. You and the video are so right – so many dogs available at shelters and rescues. He looks like such a sweet boy, and shar pei – all or part. Thanks for sharing this heart-wrenching story. Really. Whose heart doesn’t need a wrench sometimes?ReplyCancel
