Nova 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A333900
  • Dog Name: Nova
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 1.5 years
  • This stunning gal is overwhelmed in the chaotic shelter and is trying to flee. She’s soft, sweet, gentle and mannerly, and just needs confidence and a little help to find her brave! She just needs a patient and gentle adopter. She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. We suspect she’d be OK with mannerly children, but no rambunctious kids for this softie! Her people will be very important to her, and she’ll thrive in a loving home where she feels safe!

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.
