Meet our brave boy Stanford:

Stanford and his 11 brothers and sisters were found in an undeveloped mountain area.  Rescuer was driving pass by and saw four puppies climbing up from cliff.  There were a lot of motorcyclist racing on that road.  Rescuer was afraid that once the puppies made it up to the road, they were very likely to be ran over by the motorcyclist.  No matter what, the puppies were in a very dangerous situation.  Rescuer immediately made a decision to take them away.  At first, three puppies successfully got into the car, but the fourth puppy kept on running back and forth,  as if he was trying to guide the rescuer somewhere.  The rescuer then climbed down the cliff and found a wounded puppy surrounded by seven other puppies.  The wounded puppy was Stanford.

We guessed that all 12 puppies tried to climb up the cliff, Stanford fell and broke his back-leg bone and couldn’t move anymore.  The vision of the four puppies continued to climb up for help while the other seven puppies stayed to protect Stanford was so touching and heart-broken.  Their lives bonded together so strong and so close.

The rescuer picked up Stanford, although in pain, he was very quiet and didn’t struggle at all.  Then, all the puppies followed the rescuer carefully up the cliff.  All 12 puppies were secured inside the car and as they were all exhausted from wondering around for so long, they were all sound asleep.

The puppies were all taken to the hospital for blood examination and joint x-ray check.  Fortunately, all the puppies were in very good condition and Stanford was scheduled for operation.  His operation was very successful and only needed a few months for recovery.  Stanford’s brothers and sisters were all adopted during his recovering period.

It’s been five months since Stanford’s operation.  The doctor found that Stanford’s leg has recovered perfectly and he was able to walk normally.  We are finally able to introduce this brave little boy to everyone.

These 12 puppies went through some hardship; therefore, they were all a bit shy at first.  Stanford, too, is a bit shy in the beginning, but, is you are gentle to him, he will soon open up and show trust in you.

Stanford is outgoing and adorable.  He is walking normally and can run around chasing other dogs with no difficulties at all.  He enjoys taking walks.  Although, e do suggest to avoid taking too many stairs, there is absolute to need to treat Stanford as a wounded puppy.  He has recovered and is now a perfect puppy!

*** Stanford is international rescue through Taiwan. He will fly to SFO on 12 Aug after the adoption is confirmed.
