Ronnie Stanley is living in a new city, so he needs someone to keep him company. It’s not surprise that he would look for a dog, or that he would go to a shelter for one, but what he said when he got there is a little surprising. 

The Ravens rookie went to the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter over the weekend with his girlfriend and said, “We are looking for dog that's been here a long time and maybe not-so-adoptable.”

The shelter shared the whole story on Facebook.

I think Ronnie and Winter are both happy to have each other.
