  • Rock star alert! This gorgeous boy loves people and other dogs! He’s happy, affectionate – such a loving and friendly boy! He loves to give hugs and gentle jumps to do so. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and playful dogs. We suspect he would be OK with children. He is looking for a family that wants their dog to be part of all their adventures – and he’ll make the best adventure buddy!!!

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.
