Carter 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A329958
  • Dog Name: Carter
  • Dog Sex: Neutered Male
  • Approximate Age: 9 months
  • This adorable bot is far too much of a marshmallow for the chaotic shelter environment! He’s overwhelmed, so is shy and timid. After a little time to feel safe, he participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and playful dogs. We suspect he’d be OK with mannerly children. We feel that in a loving home, this boy will come out of his shell and show his playful, fun and active side!

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.
