Meet Sgt. Stanley

LMVFM has adopted our newest "Paws and Effect" team member Stanley. Stanley is a 8 wk old English Labrador Retriever and already loves to travel and loves to play in the snow

Did you know that puppies spend between 18-22 hours a day asleep?
Some expert has said this, but after the first 24 ours with our recruiter Stanley, I can tell you he has been up and active far more than the experts report.


We've now had Stanley just Bout 24hrs. He's an amazing little fellow and tomorrow he'll report for basic training at "Fort LMVFM". We'll keep you all posted.

Stanley Tucker is really growing quickly and has recently outgrown his lumberjack vest.

Stanley had his first professional bath yesterday and smells like bay rum, a favourite of his. When we picked him up he was sporting a hand tied bow-tie given to him by the guys at Green Dog. He looks and smells so nice and clean, but alas, we know that this too will pass.

Springtime in Fort Wayne in April 2016  Part of Stanley Tucker's' training involves spending quality
one on one time with our clients during therapy.

Stanley is ONE year old.
