My story

James is a majestic 2-year old male German Shepherd who was brought to the HSOV on March 7, 2022 by a Washington County Ohio Deputy Sheriff who picked him up on Lynch Church Road near Marietta Ohio. James was not wearing a collar, and he was not microchipped.

James has a snow white medium-haired coat, a long fluffy tail, and a beautiful German Shepherd face with brown eyes, a liver-colored nose on his slender muzzle, and large erect ears.

James has a friendly easygoing personality and was a pleasure to photograph when HSOV Kennel Manager Rachal Merrow accompanied him for outdoor 'glamour' photos on March 8th.

A family who had experience with visits from James in the Whipple Ohio area noted on his Facebook photos that he LOVED water and played with them when they were spaying water from a garden hose. Our kennel techs have bathed him, and he has done well when they've had him in the shower.

James weighs 48 lbs and walks fairly well on a leash.

In compliance with the Ohio Revised Code, James will be held for three days so that his family will have an opportunity to reclaim him with proof of ownership.

Since James was not reclaimed, he was neutered on March 14, 2022 and was also given rabies vaccine.

We've learned that James is not good with other dogs (or cats), so he would do best in a home where he could be an 'only child' and would not have to share his space with other animals.
