Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Boxer
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male

We have learned a lot about Charlie since he has been in our Rescue program and we have discovered that he will need a very particular type of environment to thrive.

Charlie is a sweet and affectionate boxer boy to people he knows and trusts. However, he becomes protective of his family and can be very reactive to strangers. We don’t know what happened to Charlie before we got him, but he is obviously fearful in certain situations.

Whoever adopts Charlie will need a securely fenced yard where he can safely run off his energy. He loves to run and play and is a joy to watch. Charlie’s forever home will need to be a low-key adult home preferably in a country location.

Charlie is currently in a boarding situation. We would love to find him a temporary home setting until he is matched with his forever home. Please contact us and complete an application if you would consider being his foster caretaker or you want to adopt.


Charlie has bounced back from his emergency surgery to remove an intestinal blockage and is completely recovered. His 20 staples have been removed from his abdomen and he is perfectly healed. He was a lucky boy and is ready to become a permanent member of a family who will love and cherish him.


Poor Charlie had to have emergency surgery at a Specialty Hospital to retrieve cloth fabric from his stomach and intestines. Luckily the surgeon was able to "milk" some of the pieces that were in his small intestines back into his stomach so no incisions had to be made in his intestinal wall. Hopefully he will recover without incident but the doctors will reevaluate him further when he has recuperated from his operation.

Please remember to act quickly if your dog is showing any signs of a gastrointestinal blockage. Young dogs are notorious for eating foreign objects such as bedding, blankets, socks, toys etc., and adult dogs will often eat things such as cat litter, corn cobs and used aluminum foil which are all particularly dangerous.

If you suspect that your dog has swallowed an inappropriate item do not wait to see a doctor. The longer a foreign body stays inside your dog the more dangerous it becomes. Many dogs have died needlessly because they did not get prompt treatment. Charlie 's surgery was expensive but his life was worth the cost.

Please help us recoup the expense of Charlie’s surgery and treatment which has run upwards of $3500.

11/2/2014: Charlie Is A Cute Quirky Little Guy

Charlie is a super excited 1 year old Boxer saved from death row at animal control. He was at the Shelter for more than a month before we heard about his plight. None of the other Rescue groups stepped up to help and, although we have no available foster homes, NBR was able to secure a temporary foster so this sweet young boy did not die.

When Charlie was taken to the Vet his exam went well. Luckily he was heartworm negative. He did have an eye infection but that will clear up quickly with medication.

We have no history about Charlie. What we have learned is that this boy absolutely loves to play, play, and play some more. He is getting help working on his manners and learning all about being a house dog like potty training and crate training. He may do best as an only dog so all the attention is focused on him since he has probably never had much affection. He is a bit hyper for young and small children so would recommend an adult home or a family with older kids.

Please consider fostering or adopting Charlie.

Below are a few words from his temporary foster mom who was instrumental in saving his life:

“I am in love with Charlie. He is a quirky little guy. He is doing really well and starting to learn how to be an indoor dog. My gut feeling tells me he was a chained dog with no freedom or human love. He runs around my back yard like a crazy man so fast that he trips over his long legs.”
