Esther 🐶

  • Animal ID#: A334067
  • Dog Name: Esther
  • Dog Sex: Female
  • Approximate Age: 2 years
  • This gorgeous gal is a total marshmallow and so gentle! She’s very shy at first meet and takes a few minutes to find her brave to approach. Getting low to the ground and sweet talking really helps, and once she finds her brave she will offer up kisses! She participates in shelter playgroups with gentle and dainty dogs. We suspect she’d be OK with mannerly children, but no chaotic home for this softie! Getting out of the shelter and into a loving home will do wonders for this wonderful gal!

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.
