Stuart came from the estate of a lady who passed away in VA. He is 10 years old and came with his brother, Bear, to live in a HOP foster home with Loni Willey on 12/2/2013. Their owner left them a small trust in her will so that they would be properly taken care of.
Stuart is blind from glaucoma, but that doesn't seem to deter him from loving life. Loni says, "...Stuart continues to amaze and humble me with his adaptability and trust. He’s snoring at my feet right now. And, wow, is he playful! Whenever you feel a small earthquake it’s because he’s done a flop-and-roll for a bellyrub. And when you stop scratching the belly, the paws just start waving in the air saying “you’re not done!”. And he’ll just sit there and rub his face all over your leg returning the love offering."
