Remember that cool kid at school, the one who was buddies with everyone and was never fazed by anything? That's James! He loves people, is great with dogs (even the slightly crazy ones), and is a generally laid-back dude. James shows off his puppy side when he gets excited -- he'll get a bit jumpy and mouthy (all 80 pounds of him). He's best suited for a home with older kids (or no kids) as he's a big boy and will continue to be excited if everyone around him acts that way.

He does not seem to have any training under his belt -- yet. But he'll happily work for treats, so training may become his favorite activity.

On walks, James is still learning to stay by your side -- leash walks are a new thing for him. Barking dogs, running cats, even deer spark little reaction during those walks. He's not a puller nor reactive -- just not sure why zig-zagging everywhere isn't the way to do it.

James is between 2 and 4 years old. He has some medical issues, so please talk with an adoption counselor for details.

If he looks like a match, please email mcline@oaklandca.gov or call 510-535-4889 to chat about James and our adoption process
