James ended up in a very high-kill pound in WV as a result of a humane seizure by animal control. He and another little dog were living in their own filth. As a result, he never learned appropriate bathroon habits, but he is learning fast. Once he's in a routine, he's fine.
He is a smart little guy and is bored easily, so another dog or kids to play with would be nice. He doesn't jump as high as a JRT...his legs are too short. He doesn't hurt the cats in his foster home, but he drives them crazy barking at them to make them run so he can chase. He loves people of all sizes and thinks they should stop and say hello. He loves meeting new dogs, but they don't all like him so another dog should match his energy level.
He is a nice dog to walk...he doesn't pull on the leash (unless he sees a person or other dog), and he walks right along. He is a happy, affection fellow in spite of his tough first two years. Get too close and you'll be assaulted with kisses.
James does have epilepsy and will require medicine (~$30/mo) for the rest of his life to control the seizures. He has not had a seizure since his first one in February.
His adoption donation includes neutering, vaccinations, implanting of a microchip, application of flea meds and worming.
James is in foster care so please complete an application at our website (www.castawaycritters.org) before meeting him. Completing an application does not obligate you to adopt; however, it is required. Applications are processed in the order received in an effort to find the best match possible for both the dog and the adopter.
