Charlie seriously needs a home that can respect and understand his back issues. He has bone spurs that cause him pain.
For the most part he's adorable, not to mention the cutest thing ever :o), but he will bite if his space isn't respected. He truly needs a home that will give him space and only pet him when he requests it.
In other words, he isn't a snuggly little thing. He simply needs a home that will give him kindness, love, healthy food, gentle care and understanding. Also, no kiddos.
He LOVES other dogs and would also be good with cats. The best home for him would have another dog, who the humans can snuggle with and pet, along with Charlie, who would be in a home where he feels safe but can kind of be on the outskirts of the family unit.
We would be ecstatic to find a home for him. It just needs to be the right home.
We do have other small adoptables, who Charlie regularly hangs out with. Adopting him along with one of his friends would be a win-win. The new family would have a doggie they could snuggle with, Charlie would have his buddy AND he would have a safe, loving home to call his.
