Adoptable Dog: Jim, A Hound Mix Looking a Forever Family

Written by:

Dog lovers, meet Jim — a 10-month old hound mix who is searching for a family of his own.

Keep reading to find out all about this very good boy who is up for adoption.

Jim has been waiting for months to find a family to call his own, and unfortunately, he’s had not the best luck so far. Luckily, he’s been able to call the East Coast Canine Rescue {ECCR} his temporary home until he finds a loving family.

Jim would be a great addition to a family with children, as he is wonderful around them and is already housebroken + crate trained.

If you’ve got another dog, fear not, as Jim loves other dogs as well. He even barks with them when he passes them in the street.

Until he gets scooped up by a loving family, he’ll keep calling the ECCR home for the time being.

The ECCR is a 501c3 volunteer-based nonprofit dedicated to animal welfare. The organization works on rescuing dogs from overcrowded shelters, removing them from situations of abuse + neglect, and helping rehabilitate + rehome animals. ECCR places their dogs in exceptional foster homes until they are placed in their adoptive homes.
