Some dogs need their personal space, a few hours to themselves where they can eat or sniff or sleep without interruption, but Stanley is not one of those dogs.
A year and a half ago, Sam Clarence adopted Stanley from a bully breed rescue in Christchurch, New Zealand, and has since watched the frightened stray pup transform into what could be called a “Velcro dog.”
These days, Stanley refuses to let go of his dad’s hand, which is far from convenient when they are out on one of their many road trips. “We have to be touching at all times,” Clarence told The Dodo. “He’s very forceful about it.”
