WSSCA Successful Rescue - James

James is an approximately 7-8 year old male Welsh Springer Spaniel with a nautral tail.   He was found in late May as a stray in the Charlottesville, Virginia area and came in to the care of Welsh Springer Spaniel Rescue on June 16, 2004.  He is a loveable and calm gentleman Welsh Springer Spaniel who still enjoys active time outside with his foster family.   

James is fully vaccinated, wormed and was just neutered after coming in to WSS Rescue. His heartworm preventative is in place and his health is generally good for an older gentleman Welshie.  He gets along very nicely with the other resident dogs in his foster family’s household and even plays with puppies.   The resident cat and horses don’t seem to interest him much either.   

James is showing signs of separation anxiety and is now on Clomicalm for this.  He is not destructive when left alone.   Continuous barking is the manifestation of separation anxiety that he shows.   James would do best with a family where someone can be with him for the majority of the time and he does fine in a crate when he needs to be left alone.   James has been sleeping in the bedroom of his foster parents and is very content to just hang out with his new family. 

Is James the dog that you would like to give some gentle senior years to?
