  • Animal ID#: A315768
  • 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 east breezy, low key and sweet as pie!  He has multiple old wounds from being picked on, so shows to be terrified of dogs. He wants so badly to be brave. In a home with a loving family and TLC, he’ll 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.
