Nelson 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A332245
  • Dog Name: Nelson
  • Dog Sex: Male
  • Approximate Age: 4 years
  • This precious, gorgeous nugget is all about people! The closer he can be to you, the better! He’s been neglected, but he’s a very forgiving boy looking for love and attention. He LOVES to give hugs! We suspect he would be OK with children. He participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty female dogs, but seems very nervous and uncomfortable. We suspect he’ll loosen up once he knows he’s safe! He’s truly the best velcro boy!

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.
