Mike McGlinchey is best friends with teammate Joe Staley on the field. He might truly even be man's best friend. 

"As much as I appreciate having a great dog, and Shoobie is that, I do prefer human companionship," McGlinchey said, "so I'm gonna go with Joe." 

Staley still is No. 1 to McGlinchey, but Shoobie isn't too far behind. McGlinchey's mix breed dog had quite the journey to the 49ers' offensive lineman too. 

"We rescued him from Jake's Wish right here in the Bay Area," McGlinchey said. "... Shoobie actually came all the way from China. He was rescued by an American, I think from a college student or family over there. He was fostered for a couple of weeks and was helped to get to America by the family.

"And two weeks later he was mine." 

As far as how Shoobie would fit on the 49ers, McGlinchey sees him as a scat back or slot receiver in the mold of a Matt Breida or Trent Taylor.
