Profile


Hi all, I would like to introduce James 12090. James is a 3 year old Golden/Lab mix, he has the coat of a yellow lab but with the golden sparkle to his fur, he is only 57lbs, is UTD on his shots and his blood work all came back negative. James still needs to be fixed and that will happen in the next couple of weeks. James came in from a hoarding situation, he was not house trained and has poor manners, however he is an extremely loving dog who wants to be with people and have as much attention as possible. He loves to give hugs.

James came to our home last week and we have been working with his house training and manners. He is making progress on his house training but manners still need some work. He loves to play and will chase a ball all day if given a chance, he will outrun our resident dog to get the ball and our resident dog just steps aside to watch him run.

Here are some things that I would like you to know about James based on what we have seen so far:

  1. He loves to be outside and we think a fenced in yard would be best for him.
  2. He does tug on the leash but not a lot.
  3. He will not do well with a cat in the house. Our resident cat is very dog savvy, but James is a little too interested in her.
  4. He has done a little counter surfing but mostly because we keep the ball on top of the counters when we are not playing.
  5. He manners need work and we are working on them all the time, he is slowly showing some progress:
    -- He likes to be on top of people and will jump on you when you are sitting anywhere
    -- He uses his paws to get your attention.
    -- He likes to jump up on people and will hold on to you until you push him down. He is like a little kid who doesn’t want to let go of you.
  6. He does not like to sleep in his cage at night but has not earned being out of the cage at night.
  7. He loves a ball and will fetch it as long as you are willing to throw it.
  8. He is not fully house trained yet although he is making progress in this area.
