Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some delightful doggies up for adoption? There are dozens of darling dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Stockton.

Animal shelters and pet rescue groups work hard to care for unhoused pets and connect them to loving homes. Hoodline used data from Petfinder to power this roundup of dogs currently available for adoption.

(Details like pet availability, training, vaccinations and other features are based on data provided by Petfinder and may be subject to change; contact the shelter for the latest information.)

Her foster mom reports this little girl is super sweet and loves her people. She is on the shy side and takes time to warm up, but once she does she is your girl. Lexie is asking for an adult-only home (although older mature gentle child may be okay). 

Mimi, poodle mix

Mimi is a female poodle mix currently housed at Pups Rescue.

Pups Rescue wants to place Mimi in a home without small children. Have no fear: She's already house-trained. She has had all of her shots, and she's spayed.

Notes from Mimi's caretakers:

In the past five years of her being here with me, she has fallen in love with me, so I know she could fall in love with someone else.  She needs the most perfect home, with no kids. Someone who will win her trust and have patience with her. Someone who will spend the majority of their days with her. She will sleep with you in your bed or on the floor in her bed but if you walk past her she will get up and leave. She is a very timid dog and gets along really well with little dogs. 

Peewee, Parson russell terrier

Peewee is a charming male Parson russell terrier dog being kept at Russell Rescue (North Carolina).

Peewee would prefer to live in a home with a doggie door and someone who is home most of the day so that he can get in to a routine for his bathroom breaks. He is crate-trained, but will bark some, and prefers to be crated beside another dog, not alone. He is skittish, won't be a lap dog, but has learned to give kisses and rely on his human for security. Peewee is a wonderful boy who is simply looking for the best final chapter of his life. 

Tamale, pit bull terrier mix

Tamale is a sweet male pit bull terrier mix currently residing at Delta Humane Society & S.P.C.A.

Tamale is looking for cat-free family. He has had all of his shots, and he's neutered.

Notes from Tamale's caretakers:

Tamale is extremely energetic and playful. He is loving and his favorite toy in the world is rope toys. He can be a little particular about his playmates so we strongly recommend a meet and greet if you have another dog in your life.

Cruz, German shepherd

Cruz is a darling male German shepherd dog being kept at Delta Humane Society & S.P.C.A.

Cruz's current caretakers say:

He is a loving family dog and is full of life. His fun consists of fetching the basketball. Cruz is an outside dog and listens to simple commands but capable of so much more. Cruz is definitely a friendly dog just looking for a home full of love so he can give some of his.
