Comet 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A316872
  • Dog Name: Comet
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 2 years
  • This precious soul has had a horrid life, and it breaks our hearts. He has been torn up by other dogs and seemingly is scared to be hit or harmed by people. Watch a video of him here. He needs immediate placement to start getting TLC. He is a very soft soul who simply wants to be loved and is sweet as pie. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. He truly deserves a happy ending. He needs some TLC and to know he is now safe and will be fed and cared for. With some pampering in a home, he will be happy as a clam and gorgeous!
  • Don’t miss “Day one of the rest of his life 👏” photos from his foster below!

👏 Just look at Comet absolutely flourishing in foster with Joanne!!!
🗣 Joanne says, “Comet (I now call him Buddy) is doing great! His open wounds have healed and just a few scabs are left. He is such a good boy. He is learning to run – I think he spent his life chained up. He has put on a couple pounds too! He is just a joy. I can’t believe he’s only been here a week❤️

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.
