  • Dog Name: Paddington

  • Approximate Age: 6 years
  • This stunning red-gold brindle sweetie pie is as precious, gentle and all-around lovely as they come! He has not had the best life and yet he has forgiven and is just full of love and so very amazing! This boy just needs TLC and to be treated like a family pet. He participated in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. We suspect he would be OK with children. We love, love, love this boy – he’s truly amazing in every way!
  • He’s thriving in foster! He is such a sweet, soft boy who loves being around you! He buries his head in you once he trusts you and follows you like a shadow! He’s a great sleeper and is proving to be house-trained! He has the most adorable silly side and even howls along with fire engines! He’s also one of the most gorgeous dogs we’ve ever seen!
  • Follow his adventures in foster on Instagram and Facebook!

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.
