After checking in at the shelter's front desk, Stanley told the staff that he was looking for a dog who had been at the shelter for a long time, "and maybe not-so-adoptable." Staff started to consider animal contenders beyond puppies — senior dogs, dogs with special needs and more.
But the one dog who ultimately caught Stanley's eye was Winter. Stanley wasn't put off by Winter's hanging belly. He only saw it for what it was — the fact that she was a mother, according to the shelter.
"Well, that's just what happens when you've had babies," Stanley said, according to the shelter's Facebook post.
