James – Our Foster Dog

Handsome James!

Handsome James!

Meet James! James arrived at his foster home looking like he’d seen better days. His eyes were sad, his coat was rough, and his entire body was painful. From the looks of him, he had spent his whole life outside and had never known the comforts of a loving home. He melted into his bed that night.  If you touched him wrong and/or surprised him, he would yelp in pain. When he made it to the vet, they cleaned years’ worth of gunk and debris from his sore, inflamed ears and a prescription for Deramaxx quickly took the edge off his pain.

Well, thanks to some TLC from his foster homes, James is doing really well now and is hoping to live out his golden years squirrel chasing, laying in the sun and spending time with his people.  He walks nicely on a leash, rides nicely in the car and is great in the crate.  If you enjoy walks, giving a massage every now and then, and having a friend around to keep you company, James would love to meet you.


Thanks to a Petfinder Foundation grant, James will come with a $100 Petco gift card when adopted so you can shop for everything he needs to get settled in at your home!
