Every Thursday morning at 7:10 am on the Lite Rock Morning Show, the Humane Society of Ocean City introduces the new Lite Rock Pet of the Week.

If you are thinking about adding a pet to your family, please consider adopting from the Humane Society of Ocean City, a no-kill shelter recognized as one of the nation’s top ten animal shelters.

This week we met Stanley the dog.

Here's some information on Stanley from the Humane Society of Ocean City:

"Stanley is a friendly, affectionate, gentle, and sweet 9-year-old mixed breed dog. He would love a quiet home where he can get a little bit of running around in the yard and then doze on the couch or on his bed basking in the sun.

Stanely has a medium-length coat.

He does not like to share his food or treats so his owners need to understand they can't just take things from him. He has done well on walks passing by other dogs but would prefer to be on his own in a home.

Stanley is looking fur that very special person that understands all the love and companionship that a senior dog like him has to offer and is willing to make "Stan" their "Man"❤"

LOOK: Here are the pets banned in each state

Because the regulation of exotic animals is left to states, some organizations, including The Humane Society of the United States, advocate for federal, standardized legislation that would ban owning large cats, bears, primates, and large poisonous snakes as pets.
