It might sound cliché, finding a love connection around Valentine’s Day – but hey, when it’s the right match, it’s meant to be - on any day!
This adoption story is about a dog named James; he arrived as a puppy as part of the “J” litter in mid-January. It took a little bit for all the siblings to get adopted because there were 12 of them! James was part of our Valentine’s Day-themed adoption event at Crossroads Center, where he met his future family. He’s now called James Pawter, and he found his new humans about two years after their last pup passed on.
“The kids had been wanting a puppy for a while, and when some of the ‘J’ litter went unadopted for a while, we knew it was a sign. At the Crossroads Center adoption event, we fell in love with James. James’ favorite activities are learning new skills (he knows almost 20 different commands!), racing through the backyard with the kids, chasing tennis balls, taking walks, chewing and herding his family all into one room. Being small-dog people prior to this, we never expected to find ourselves with an 80-pound puppy, but James is definitely one of the family now and a definite gentle giant! He has bonded so amazingly with us and our three children, that we couldn't imagine not having him with us.”
