James is a very sweet, affectionate, and gentle puppy boy. He is outgoing, inquisitive and quiet. He relates very well to people and plays well with the other Borzoi and Silken at his foster home.







He LOVES toys — the squeakier the better — and he will fetch!  James likes to be outside, loves the water and is always first to jump in the pond at his foster home. James takes treats softly from your hand and loves peanut butter treats. He is very good about giving toys and other things up to people.






James has never had an accident in the house and is learning to go to the back door and ask to go out. He is also learning to be asked to “hurry go potty” and usually does right away. He Is generally good with grooming. His rescue bath was not his favorite event, but he enjoyed toweling and was fine being blown dry




Since being in foster, James is getting very good on lead and loves to walk.  He has learned to go up and down stairs and is fine with vacuum cleaners.  He WILL swipe anything he can reach — though carefully! —– from counters, etc. — and he can be quite sneaky as he does it!  James can and will climb like a monkey. 


James has been a good eater, but does not always finish every meal.  Since he is still very young, he is being fed three times a day in his foster home. He does not like being approached by other dogs when he is eating. He is likely used to competing for food in his former life. 

He rode well in the car BUT left along will chew seatbelts – he’s a PUPPY!  James has been fine being crated overnight but has always been crated in a room where he has other dogs for company.


This is a very cute, likeable, young fellow who cooperates readily when he knows what is expected of him and when he is given time to learn how to do it.
