Nutmeg 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A320032
  • Dog Name: Nutmeg
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 4 years
  • This is one gorgeous, soft and very sweet gal! She’s shy, but with a bit of time, she enjoys petting and affection and will stand to enjoy it. Getting low to the ground and sweet talking her really helps! She’s a total marshmallow who just wants to please! She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. She just needs a chance with a patient adopter willing and able to see all this beautiful girl’s potential! We suspect she will thrive in a home and come out of her shell!!!

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.
