People all across the world have been won over by a video that shows a rescued puppy being cared for by his new “dad.”
And despite the fact that it is not uncommon for dogs and their owners to have a strong connection, this dog just would not let go of his father’s hand, not even while they were in the midst of a long car ride on the way to his new residence.
It is reasonable to assume, on the basis of the video that has gone viral, that the puppy is thankful to his new “dad” for providing him with a new home.
It is really difficult to picture the life that this dog had before he was rescued, and it is a blessing that he has been given a second opportunity in life.
The guy in the film, Sam Clarence, volunteered his time at a Bull Breed Rescue in Christchurch, which is located in the country of New Zealand. He volunteered part of his time to the animal shelter by walking the dogs there.
Stanley, the clinging dog shown in the film, was introduced to him for the first time at that location.
Despite the passage of time, Clarence can still recall with crystal clarity the very first moment he lay eyes on Stanley.”
When we got the dog when he was only 6 months old, he was just a puppy, along with his mother and another puppies, he was found on a farm that had been abandoned.”
Clarence was contacted by the animal shelter to inquire as to whether or not he would be able to look after one of the rescued pups for a period of two to three weeks.
Clarence was very patient with Stanley as he worked through the process of adjusting to life in his new home, which took some time.
During this period, in addition to providing Stanley with a place to sleep and a roof over his head, he also allowed the rescued dog to sleep on his own bed. “He would sleep behind me and always have at least one paw touching my back; if I moved, he moved.”
As a result of how close they were, Clarence absolutely fell in love with Stanley, and Stanley began to like Clarence more and more.
Clarence came to the conclusion that the best thing for Stanley would be for him to move in with him and become his new official dog parent. And Stanley, who had been a timid and fearful puppy, developed into an overly attached adult dog.
“We have to be touching at all times. He comes out as quite aggressive in this regard. It’s simply his peculiarity.”
Because Stanley has a tendency to cling to people and things, Clarence refers to him as a “velcro dog,” – a word that was made up to describe dogs that are very attached to their owners and demand to be with them at all times.
