Socks 🐶

  • This gorgeous young guy is very worried and concerned in the shelter environment. He’s a total marshmallow and the chaotic shelter is far too much for him! He’s terrified! When you go slow with him and show him it is OK, he comes around quickly and will start to relax and show off more of his playful and silly side. He has the same reaction with dogs. He needs out of shelter ASAP and will thrive in a home with a patient family that will help him slowly come out of shell and build confidence. He just needs – and deserves – a chance!

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.
