POWJim is a Shepherd/Lab mix who came to Operation Kindness after a staff member found him wondering the streets looking for food. If we were handing out class awards to our canine friends, Jim would be the Class Clown. This handsome fellow gets along with all dogs and also loves toys. If he’s not wrestling with his roommate, he is playing with the toys in the yard.  While he has a lot of energy, he is also easy going and does well with other dogs. He will need a home with people willing to keep up with his youthful energy and has a back yard for him to play in everyday.  If you feel that you are the right fit, come in today and meet the Bill Murray of Operation Kindness!
