The dog charity that Stacey Solomon adopted for her new dog has been forced to deny it bends its rules to celebrity owners.
The mother-of-four used the Instagram she adopted new puppy Theo last week after announcing her beloved dog Theo passed away in December.
Stacey, 32, took to Instagram on Monday to share adorable photos of the new dog she adopted from charity ProDogsDirect.
While many fans rejoiced at the cute new arrival, many were confused as to how the star managed to bring him home with young children in the house.
Loose Women panelists welcomed a baby girl back to life in October, and also three boys, Rex, two, Leighton, nine, and Zachary, 13, at home.
Questioned about whether she received special treatment due to her celebrity status, some angry fans turned to the comments section.
One woman said: “I find it very sad that rescuers don’t usually make the adoption process so easy. “Families often need older kids because they don’t know a dog’s history.
“But for celebrities, they break the rules. Not even a home visit. Why not give everyone the same treatment, celebrity or not.”
Another fan shared: “I would love to know how you do this. I had to go get a puppy because no rescue could let me have a dog due to childbirth.
“It’s ridiculous that the so-called normal can’t be rescued but the celebrities can and it doesn’t matter the circumstances.”
“I went to a dog rescue a few weeks ago and they told us anyone with children under the age of six is not allowed to have a rescue dog?” a third came in.
“I have two children under the age of six so I can’t give a rescue dog a loving home after losing our beloved boxer to cancer last year.”
After a wave of comments, the charity ProDogsDirect was forced to defend Stacey’s adoption and explain that there was no special treatment.
“We treat each dog as an individual – many of our dogs, sadly for the most part, cannot be cared for with young children because of their past or lack of information about their past,” a statement said. Dad posted on Instagram.
“This guy is great with kids, he has a bad temper and is now in a great home.
“We know how hard it is when you have kids and we wish all of our dogs could be raised with kids. They can’t but we can talk and stay home with kids if that’s the case. The house is suitable for the dog.
“Every dog is individual and so is each of our applicants. Please be kind, we all want the same thing and that is to see all animals safe and loved. .”
They went on to confirm that they rehired Teddy to Stacey, who monitored their “adoption process” and filled out a complete application.
“Yes her home has been inspected, and no she hasn’t adopted a dog in 24 hours,” the spokesperson continued.
“It’s sad that the minority can’t rejoice that a rescue dog has found a wonderful home where he will be loved and cared for – we couldn’t be happier for Teddy and his new family. it.
“Be happy and kind and if you can’t then shut up – Thank you to everyone who made Teddy happy.”
