WAG in Whistler is an amazing shelter dedicated to reward based training methods and progressive behaviour modification in helping special dogs find homes. Their recent video of Stan is an inspiration! WAG is near and dear to my heart - both Carmac and Shorty came from WAG, I worked there and later volunteered there. If you are in British Columbia and looking for a canine or feline friend, please contact the shelter or if you are looking to spread some holiday cheer, please think of the WAG crew this holiday season :). ...

Looking back on Stan's journey it is mind blowing the dog he has become. He still has a long road ahead but we are so incredibly proud of the progress he has made. Life hasn't been kind to Stan but he is still willing to try new things and show love and affection to people.

We hope someone will see the potential in Stan that we do, and open up their home and hearts to him.
