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!
