James was living with a homeless family before finding a new life with GRRSWF. He is docile, loving and needs little exercise.
James is a major league skink-hunter. At about 11 years old, he loves nothing better than to search the entire yard for the little guys who may be hiding. He then he stares at them until they either smile back at him or run for the palms!
James walks carefully because of his hips, but the glucosamine medications have worked wonders. He dances (truly!) now when he sees his dinner being prepared, and nuzzles the other dogs in the foster family's home to ask them to play with him. He loves to snuggle and have his head rubbed. His gorgeous big brown eyes look right into your heart.
James is a happy guy, and a wonderful companion who loves to lay near you and just be together. Wouldn't you love to have this love muffin to pet as you read or watch tv? He's a doll.
GRRSWF will consider applicants outside of our normal area for James, but applicants must live in the state of Florida and be willing to travel to meet James.
All GRRSWF dogs have undergone a full examination by a veterinarian, and any health concerns have been addressed. If you are interested in learning more about James, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can read about our adoption process in detail and download an application from our website at http://www.grrswf.org/index-2.html
PLEASE NOTE: We serve Southwest Florida from Naples to Ocala.
If you live OUTSIDE of our service area and are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please note that we will only consider an application for senior dogs (over the age of 8) or dogs with special needs (usually medication). BEFORE submitting your application, send an email to info@GRRSWF.org to request an exception to our service area. If that approval is given, you will be asked to complete an application, clearly stating on it that you are interested in a special needs or senior dog. However, please be aware that, unfortunately, there are some locations we simply cannot cover because we do not have sufficient representation in those areas to perform the required home visits prior to the adoption, or follow-up visits afterward. If that is the case, we will be happy to refer you to a local rescue or shelter.
