James Joyce

Male

9 Months

15 Pounds

James Joyce is a sweet and cuddly pup! He loves to go up to his human and wrap his arms around their leg as he gets his head scratched. James also loves to run around and play. He is easy going and really just loves to cuddle. He is currently working on pottying out on walks or at the dog park, but he is good going in the backyard. He does have accidents at first until he figures out his potty/walk routine. James rides well in the car and is content in a dog bed or in someone's lap. He is not a fan of super long rides and can get car sick if he spends over an hour in the car. He enjoys playing with friendly, playful dogs once he warms up to them. He can be shy at first, but warms up quickly to lots of pets and kisses. If you sit on the ground, he will happily walk into your lap for pets. He walks well on the leash, especially on his normal walking route. He always has his head to the ground trying to sniff out his new surroundings. In new areas, he can get eager on the leash and pull to the next spot he is interested in. He is a slower walker and prefers leisurely walks over quick-paced ones. He does well in populated areas, but can pull ocassionally when he sees a new dog that he wants to go up to and get to know. He listens well to redirection in those situations and will keep on walking. James enjoys chewing on toys while his foster mom works from home or laying on a cooling mat. He is pretty quiet in the home and will entertain himself if everyone is busy. He may bark a couple of times to get his foster family's attention if someone is really knocking on the door, though, he is pretty darn quiet for the most part. If he can, he loves sleeping in his human's bed and he'll full sploot out with floppy arms on his back. He is also happy sleeping on the floor or in a dog bed. James likes nuzzling his head into your arms whenever he is wanting cuddles. He likes to hug his humans back! He is a very kind dog and a sturdy size to cuddle with children as he doesn't mind when his ears, tail, or legs are tugged on. James Joyce would be happy in a home with other dogs or by himself. He ultimately wants a loving family that will match his loving, sweet spirit!
