6 Years Old

Jim, the extremely loveable and sweet soul here at Clarks Farm, holds a special place in the hearts of all the staff. 

His lovable nature and boundless affection make him truly one of a kind. Through all the challenges he's endured, Jim's strength and resilience have always shone through. We hope that his forever home will embrace all the things that make him special, including his unique qualities and quirks. 

Originally part of a trio with his brother Frank and sister Ally, Jim’s journey took a difficult turn along with his siblings when a newborn baby disrupted their lives, leading them back to the kennels. 

We made the difficult decision recently to separate Jim from his sister for rehoming, Jim and Ally are both thriving individually, giving hope for their futures in separate forever homes. 

Despite facing kennel stress, Jim has made a lot of progress in finding ways to relax and feel comfortable within the kennel environment. We have a structured routine in place to help Jim thrive while he waits for his forever home.

Jim’s affectionate nature knows no bounds. He loves human companionship and thrives off any time spent with his favourite people. Once Jim welcomes you into his world, he has a magical way of making you feel cherished and valued, bringing joy and light into the lives of those around him.

His striking grey face, complete with his expressive grey eyebrows, adds to his unique charm that captivates anyone who meets him. Jim is not just a resident here at the kennels he is a cherished member of our family. His cuddles and affectionate nature are a constant source of comfort and happiness for those lucky enough to spend time with him. 

He is a bundle of joy with a playful side that will warm your heart. His silly antics, like galloping around with his toys, play bowing and jumping foot to foot to invite us humans to join in are truly heartwarming. 

When Jim isn’t playing or cuddling us humans he transforms into the ultimate sun worshipper. His favourite pastimes are sunbathing and relaxing, he is truly the cutest sun worshipper we have ever seen!

Jim is currently kennelled alone, enjoying his own space in the kennel and is doing well. He's showing his independent side and that he would do best as the only hound in the home. This way, he can enjoy getting one-on-one attention from his forever humans.

I must be transparent about Jim and his unique personality and traits to attract the right individual for his rehoming. Jim is colour-coded as red meaning he is reactive. Unfortunately, Jim’s reactivity is indicated towards any greyhound unless it is his sister Ally. He displays behaviours such as lunging, barking and snapping. 

His forever family needs to understand that reactivity is an overreaction to a particular stimulus, and it is completely different from aggression. In Jim’s case, the stimulus is other dogs, and he overreacts whenever he gets too close. 

Due to this Jim does need a confident and experienced owner who can provide the guidance and support he requires. His sensitivity to human emotions stresses the importance for Jim to have a calm and confident handler to help him feel secure and at ease. 

Despite his challenges, Jim has shown promise during his small dog tests being able to pass Blossom with little reaction. It does seem as if his main trigger is the other greyhounds over smaller breeds. 

Jim will do best in an adult-only home or one with teenagers who understand dogs so they can provide him with a strong support system, as this is essential so he can thrive. A peaceful home in a quiet area would be ideal for Jim as this will minimize stress when out on walks and allow him to relax in his forever home. 

Jim is having training sessions with Aimee where he has shown us just how intelligent and eager to learn he is. They have been working on tools to help him overcome his reactivity and prepare him for situations he may encounter in the outside world. 

For anyone considering adopting Jim, rest assured that ongoing support from all the staff and a training plan will be provided to ensure a smooth transition and continued progress for Jim. Despite all the challenges Jim faces due to his reactivity, the right person will recognise his exceptional qualities and look beyond his struggles to appreciate his kind and beautiful nature.

Finding the ideal match for Jim may take time, but his forever home is out there, waiting to provide him with the love and understanding he deserves. The decision to welcome Jim into your heart and home will not only be fulfilling but also one that you will never regret. 

If you are looking for a truly special companion, Jim might just be the one for you!
