  • This is one absolutely lovely boy who seems to have a very gentle and mannerly demeanor. He’s shy at first meet, and takes a little time to acclimate and find his confidence with people. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. He’s not too pushy with attention and is content to simply sit by your side. He’s just looking for a soft, loving home!!!

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.
