That's wonderful.

One of the children took in a dog thought to have been a bait dog.

1 year on he is totally devoted to his new humans,and has a beautiful life.

So worthwhile to take on an older soul.

Blackbird8 in reply to ninelives

I love that sounds a fantastic furby πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸ–€

He is an absolute joy.

Probably won't ever get over his fear of other dogs.Totally happy to be right where you are awaiting cuddles and attention.

Please post picture of your new furbaby after he has had his makeover at the groomers.

He looks so fine, shiny coat and all. Is he an Englih lab? J.

Blackbird8 in reply to jmsutt73

No hes a spaniel πŸ’šπŸ’›

Aww. I bet Stan has a great time with you We’re still dog minding our daughters lab. Having good cuddles and walks apart from when she rolled in the 🦊 πŸ’© πŸ™ˆxx

Haha sounds like a few of mine rolling in poo de faux from the parfum department..

Its disgusting the smell of my van some days ..

I'm hoping his life will change for the better πŸ’›πŸ’š

I'm sure it will xx

Many congratulations! Seems to be the season to adopt rescues! Well done. He’s a beautiful dog. Stan, you’ve fallen on your feet finding Blackbird 8! Suzy, at nearly 12, has already changed my life for the better after ten days together.

Awww that's amazing πŸ’šπŸ’›

Hello Bronwen, Did Suzy come through her dentistry OK?

Thanks so much for asking! Yes, she is so amazing; poor girl had 8 teeth removed, was rolling around a bit like a drunken sailor from the anaesthetic when I got her home, but recovered enough to woof (pun intended) down her dinner and full breakfast next morning!

Oh good. Was a bit concerned because of her age. She's obviously a little toughie.

Like to think of you both enjoying each other's company from now on.

Oh isn’t he gorgeous , he will such an addition to your family x

Blackbird8 in reply to Daisy55

Thankyou Daisy πŸ’š

Stan the man looks fantastic, enjoy esch other,.


Blackbird8 in reply to Sops

Thankyou we intend to πŸ’šπŸ’›

He's a handsome lad. I am sure he loves you already.

Blackbird8 in reply to Rayswife

Thankyou well if he dosent I dont mind he can put up with me πŸ’›πŸ’š

What a lucky boy finding kind people like yourself. Well done and enjoy each other. Carole x

Blackbird8 in reply to Johnsel

He found us ...and we will thankyou x πŸ’š

Sure you are both going to share many happy times together now. Enjoy.

Blackbird8 in reply to Lemon7

I'm hoping so thankyou Lemon πŸ’š

What a wonderful thing to do on so many fronts. Much love and light to Stan and to his new owners πŸ₯°

Thankyou Dolly

That was my mums nick name love her πŸ’›

Aw - that’s good to know. It is a name left over from another era and is deeply comforting somehow.

I hope Stan is thriving. ❀️

Yes she was called it due to her tiny frame and size even after 13 children she was about 8 stone and around 5 ft ...

He most certainly is hes beside on the bed and for the first time hes not actually followed me which means he's rather comfy wrapped up in a blanket lifting his head on the odd occasion to just look around then he flops and sighs πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’š

Wow - 13 children and 8stone - impressive! So you have many siblings.

So glad Stan is comfy and cosy. My son’s Sphinx cat is staying a few days. They have no hair which is quite odd.

He's a lucky dog - sure he'll repay you plenty. A lovely photograph too.

Blackbird8 in reply to Alberta56

So long as hes comfortable and happy that's enough for us πŸ’›πŸ’š

Stan the Man is lovely! Of course he’ll love you ❀️

Thankyou woodwalker love that name ...he is quite something 🐾🐾

What a beautiful young boy he is! That's so great of you, Blackbird, I hope you all enjoy great times and love shared and warmth! I love this! Thank you for sharing, but also sharing your life with this wonderful boy! β€πŸ’―πŸ€—πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΉπŸŽˆπŸ‘πŸΎπŸŒΊ

That's really kind ginger thankyou ... I'm sure our home will be blessed with him in it πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š


Such a lovely thing to do BB, I am sure Stan will love his new home and owners, he looks a lovely character x

Blackbird8 in reply to Izb1

Hes a cracking boy ..I just need him to know he belongs here with us now πŸ’šπŸ’š

Izb1 in reply to Blackbird8

I am sure he will soon with the amount of love showered on him x

Stans very lucky to have found you but I’m sure he will repay your kindness many times over. We have a rescue sprinter/collie and she is full of beans. I feel sure Stan will get all the exercise he needs with you. ❀️

Blackbird8 in reply to Mooka

Awww thankyou ...I love collies i walk a few and they are all just nuts . Stanley can have as little or as much as he likes ...he has hip dysplasia so not expecting marathons but if he enjoys it then that's the beauty of it πŸ’šπŸ’š

Of course he will, he's gorgeous and so lucky to end up with you πŸ’™πŸ’š xxxx

Aww thankyou thats really kind of you πŸ’šπŸ’š

He is being raised by a wonderful and loving family, good for you.

Blackbird8 in reply to winabago

Ah we are doing his bucket list for him comfy bed full belly cuddles when required ...Lamborghini holidays in the Caribbean πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ’šπŸ’š

winabago in reply to Blackbird8

Blackbird8 in reply to Buzzytruk

Oh I know Jo soft as mush and then some ..

Hope your well lovley lady πŸ’šπŸ§‘

Ahh Stanley looks a lovely chap pie. Hope you enjoy being with each other. What a lucky boy!

Blackbird8 in reply to Chriskho

Thankyou lovley appreciated kind words. I'm hoping he settles nicely πŸ’š

All ours are rescues and spaniels. Some of them have had awful lives before but what matters is the here and now and the future. I can never understand why anyone has children or animals then abuses them. Stan looks lovely an older version off one of ours.

Stans not a rescue he was with his last owner for 11 years bad situation

new dog in the home... old one gets kicked out ..because I'm a dog walker I was contacted too see if I wanted him hesitation no questions hes here now ..

Hes a beautiful boy and stole my heart πŸ§‘πŸ’š

Owners who do that should be given a lifetime ban from keeping any animal. Glad Stan is with you now.

What a beauty. He has definitely found a loving home. 🐞

He most certainly has and agree hes a beautiful boy πŸ’šπŸ§‘

Happy days for all. So pleased for Stan the man. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’žx

Blackbird8 in reply to Hollyjt

Thankyou we are pleased for us to have him πŸ’š

How lucky you both are to find each other😁. Dogs are defo our best friends , he will love and be your companion always . I have a 13 month old puppy , he’s adorable and is by my side always. I just want to grow old with him and my hubby by my side πŸ‘±πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’›πŸ˜˜

Awwww he sounds adorable that young and with everything ahead of him .his life will be full of fun and love πŸ’šπŸ§‘
