Meet Charlie, one of the pups on our VSP (Very Special Pup) list! 

If you're ever at one of our events, sometimes you may hear us calling him 'Chester'. This is because there are two sides to this (mostly) sweet soul. 'Chester' hates adoption events, but can you blame him.  Being cramped up in a kennel for long hours in a public setting can be torturous for a little guy where the world can be so frightening & intimidating. With too much commotion around him, Charlie can become Mr. Grumpy pants and be snappy.   We also don’t know much about Charlie’s past history and assume he was handled very poorly which contributed to his sensitivity to noise and fast movements. 

When not at adoption events, 'Chester' subsides and the lovable Charlie comes back. Charlie LOVES to go on long walks and hikes. With his former foster family, he went on long hikes every week and does great off leash. If he was ahead of the pack, he would make sure to stay close enough to be in eye contact and would turn around often to make sure they were still on pace with him. When in nature and in his comfort zone, Charlie seemed to be the most at peace.  Charlie would love to be with an active person who can take him on plenty of walks and outdoor excursions. He is eager to learn and picks up tricks & commands very well when there is dedicated time to teach him these things.

Charlie can become ‘Chester’ when there’s too much things going on around him and his anxiety peaks.  Because of this, It is best for him to be placed in a home where there is no small children and there either be one experienced owner or no more than 2 people in the household. He should either be the only pet or be with a submissive dog in the family as he likes other dogs but has alpha dog tendency. Charlie is the sweetest dog but can change his mood quickly without much notice and become snappy and a growly grumper.  Though a good majority of those times he will give off signals before his grumpy side comes out.  Due to this, his new forever parent will have to have a knack for watching out for those signals and be patient enough to help him through his ‘Chester’ moments.

Charlie is crate and potty trained. up to date on shots, neutered, micro chipped & ready to find his forever home. His adoption fee is $350.

If you're interested in him or know someone who is, feel free to send us a message to set up a meet and greet or stop by and see him at one of our weekly events on Saturday!

About Forever Home Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Forever Home Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We receive dogs from owner surrenders and overcrowded shelters. All of the dogs are housed in private, loving foster homes in the greater Seattle area. We assess their behaviors and health and help them relax during their transition to a forever home. The dogs remain in foster care or in our kenneling facility until they are adopted. All of the dogs visit our vet for a health screening, are spayed or neutered, microchipped and are current on routine vaccinations.

Forever home dog rescue is not a shelter and thus you cannot see the dogs without an appointment.

We need foster homes! Thinking about adopting a dog, but not sure yet about which breed or if you're ready for the long-term commitment? Consider becoming a foster parent. A foster dog placement can be anywhere from two weeks to several months. We provide any dog supplies you may need and cover all necessary medical costs for your foster dog. You provide the love and attention and bring the dogs to adoption events at least twice per month.

Interested? Send us an email at and we'll send you a foster application. It's lots of fun and you will meet lots of dogs and other people who love dogs.
