Are you looking for a funny goofball who wants nothing more but cuddling with his humans and access to a backyard where he can lounge and chase the sun? Then Stan may just be your guy!! Stan is a loveable guy who loves his toys, swimming in a kiddie pool and running around his backyard.
Stan does like to cuddle with other dogs that he knows very well. It takes Stan several weeks of seeing dogs at a distance (through crates/gates) before he can be introduced to them. He only likes the ladies but has a rougher, more vocal play style, so any dog would have to be tolerant of this. He would also be good as the only dog in the home. Stan likes kids but he is big and bouncy. He also likes to protect young children as his own. For this reason, he is looking for a home where kids are 12 years or older.
Detached housing is an absolute must for Stan as he has the unique talent of screaming like a hyena when he is upset in his crate. Stan does suffer from anxieties and every little change in his routine or surroundings is very upsetting for him. Although he takes daily meds for this, it can take him hours to days/weeks to settle after a change. Once he is comfortable, he is a very chill boy.
Stan does need to be crated when unsupervised otherwise he will shred any blankets or material that he can find. He also has a sensitive stomach and any unfamiliar food makes him very sick. Only vegetarian food and treats for Stan!
So while this nutty boy has quite the laundry list of requirements for his perfect home, once he is settled in, he is really a low maintenance, goofy dog to have around.
