Description: ***Needs a Foster Home***
This dog is in need of a foster home as well as a permanent home. If you are interested in fostering call the Adoption Center at (805) 644-PETS (7387).
'Hi, I'm Charlie! I'm a handsome, outgoing, energetic and playful young Chow who loves to play ball and I'm great on a leash. I was rescued from a high-kill animal shelter in Los Angeles and I'll always be grateful for the chance to find a forever home!'
Charlie is affectionate and intelligent but he has some behavioral problems that resulted in him biting a child. The child was petting him, and Charlie suddenly bit without warning.
A trainer has evaluated him since then, and his conclusion was that Charlie needs an experienced, confident owner who can be a strong leader for him. We are looking for a home with no children for Charlie, with an owner who can work on his behavior.
Charlie is a loving companion who has issues, and we believe he could overcome them given time and attention.
*Thank you to Sharon for sponsoring this wonderful dog at the Burnice Kraemer Sanctuary and giving him the chance for a better life.
