  • Dog Name: Linus
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 7 years
  • It’s hard to think of a dog more deserving of a happy new beginning that this guy with the face that will melt your heart. He’s absolutely precious and has had a rough life. He cowers when he is pet and is terrified of being harmed. He will very gently lean into you for more affection but keeps his tail tucked – it’s heartbreaking. He stays in your arms once he knows he’s safe. He’s easy-breezy, low key and sweet as pie!
  • In a loving foster home, he’s already thriving! His fosters say, “He’s such a sweet little snuggle bunny. Linus is a senior. He’s had a rough start to life, but has nothing but love to give. He’s endearingly sweet and will follow you everywhere! He lives in a home with children, dogs and cats, and is loving with the kids and has passive energy with the dogs. He lives for snuggling and being near you! He’s housebroken and crate-trained! He’s all heart and would love to have a forever home to live out his golden years!”

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.
