Charley is 12-year-old, 20-pound Chow/Pomeranian mix. This sweet senior was surrendered to an overcrowded shelter in Southern California by his guardian, and a good samaritan chose to rescue him and sponsor his care when she saw a video of him terrified and confused in his kennel. We're so glad she did - Charley is a delightful little guy and will make some lucky person a fun companion. When you're out and about with Charley, be ready for some attention. His big smile, unique looks and sassy trot draw a crowd. His foster mom says people who pass him on walks often get big smiles on their faces, and many ask what kind of dog he is. He loves the attention, which may be why he enjoys going on walks each day.Charley is friendly and gentle with everyone - other dogs and people of all ages. He is currently living in his foster home, with three dogs of various sizes and three cats. He is part of the pack and gets along splendidly with all members of his family. He loves going on trips in the car with the other dogs. He has no problem waiting while his foster parent does errands. Charley is house trained, walks well on a leash, and sleeps quietly though the night on his bed near his person. He is a very well balanced, confident, sweet dog with an adorable underbite that you're sure to love. In other words, he is the total package! Charley is such a good, kind, well-behaved boy, we think he must have been well-loved in the first chapter of his life. We're hoping his next chapter includes the same.
