  • All this handsome guy wants is some stability and a family who will give him time to warm up. He seems to have been passed around and we suspect he was an outdoor only dog. He’s shy with people, but knows his name and using it helps him relax and know he is safe. Once he’s a bit more comfy, he gently nuzzles your hand to ask for more gentle pets. He’s scared in the shelter environment. He coexists with female dogs, but would love to be your one and only also! He’s down to simply relax by your side and isn’t pushy with attention. With a family who will show him love but also give him time to come around, he should start to thrive!

Meeting Dogs at the Stockton Shelter

The shelter’s kennels are loud, stressful places for dogs. Some dogs express that stress by exhibiting behavior inside a kennel that they will not show otherwise. Please ask to take the dog you are interested into a play yard and spend some time getting to know him or her in that more relaxed environment. For more information on meeting dogs at the shelter, please read this article.
