  • This is one precious and very sweet gal, She’s had a rough life, but is full of sugar. She is nervous in the chaotic shelter. When you get low to the ground and sweet talk her, she ever so gently will offer up kisses to your face! There is something so gentle and lovely about her despite her past – and she really speaks to our hearts. She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs, and seems most comfy with males. We suspect she would be OK with mannerly children; a loud, chaotic home is no place for this softie! She so deserves some amazing TLC!!!

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.
