Safe Rescue met Jim on their trip to the Botosani public shelter in Romania back in March last year. They didn’t enter his pen because, despite his being friendly and happy at the bars, he’d been kennelled with another dog who was aggressive and frankly terrifying. Nobody ever went and spent time with him due to this and he’d been in this pen for 2 years.
Handsome Jim is a scruffily, medium-sized Crossbreed lad who is believed to be around 7 years old. He is relatively long-haired and requires regular maintenance grooming – something he quite enjoys. He’s currently living in a foster home in Norwich, Norfolk.
Jim was adopted quite quickly because he’s such a lovely chap but, sadly once he had begun to love his new home and family, he started to show some protective tendencies and his family weren’t experienced enough to cope with this. Jim gets on exceptionally well with other dogs in his current foster home, although it’s believed he could also be quite happy as an only dog as long as he had opportunity to meet and play with other dogs sometimes too.
Jim is clean and tidy in the home. He very much enjoys his naps – often having a deep sleep and an adorable snore. He also enjoys his walks at his own slow, ploddy, sniffy pace and walks beautifully on his lead without pulling. He can be left for reasonable periods of time without any issue as long as he has somewhere cosy to nap.
Jim is looking for an adult-only home which is relatively quiet so he can chill and enjoy his retirement years in peace, napping to his heart’s content. He would benefit from an experienced adopter who would happily pop him into his crate or another room when visitors come to the home just in case any of his protective tendencies show again.
Jim is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered and an adoption fee and home check apply.
Note: Safe Rescue have a policy that all dogs adopted from Safe Rescue must wear a slip lead on walks for the duration of their lives. Please only enquire about Safe Rescue dogs if you are happy to always use a slip lead – extendable leads are not acceptable to Safe Rescue.
