about James

  • Friendly to other dogs.
JAMES, male, Shelter since 22.03.2010

Pointer-Mix, DOB 15.03.2008 – 60 cm


When James was bought into the shelter all those years ago, had approached a house because he was starving hungry. The house owner gave him some food and the next morning she brought him to Apasa. Poor James had a whole lot of ticks in one of his ears and he badly needed help. He has been at the shelter ever since and made it his home. He is a very kind and gentle dog, who everyone refers to as “Gentleman James”. He is very sociable, gets on well with other dogs and he walks well on the lead. He is now an elderly dog having spent over 11 years at the shelter and we worry that he will never know what home life is like. He doesn’t worry too much because to him Apasa is his home, Helga his kennelmate is his sister, and he gets a lot of love from the shelter staff. However, we all know that nothing compares to a proper home, so we hope one day he will get to experience true love in a home who will have him until the end of his days.
