Jim is definitely a staff and volunteer favorite around here, and once you meet him you’ll understand why. There’s just something about Jim… There’s a sparkle in his eye, a sweetness in his spirit, a spunkiness in his step. You may soon notice your cheeks are starting to hurt and come to realize that it’s because you haven’t stopped smiling since you first laid eyes on him.
Yep, that’s the kind of effect this guy has.
The 2-year old American Staffordshire Terrier Mix is a great balance of smart, athletic, sweet, and oh-so handsome. Jim is well-trained and knows basic commands, walks very well on leash, and does great in his doggie playgroups. He simply loves going on any type of excursion (he has lots of energy and would be a perfect hiking & running buddy), and Jim is currently one of several lucky dogs chosen to participate in our Canine Adventure Program, in which volunteers take shelter dogs on outings away from the shelter environment. So far, some of Jim’s favorite destinations have been Fashion Valley Mall, Balboa Park, and Petco. These “adventures” allow our doggies the opportunity to experience new sights and smells, and make new friends, too.
And speaking of making new friends, here is an excerpt from the notes entered by a volunteer after Jim’s most recent trek to Balboa Park: “Several people engaged in conversation and interacted with Jim, all commented on what a nice & good-looking dog he is, Jim was eager to have their attention and affection!”
This magnetic boy simply loves making new friends and experiencing new adventures. Most of all, Jim can’t wait for the day when he gets to embark on his best adventure yet: going home!
