Charlotte is an adorable approximately 2 year old, 25 pound sweetie pie who just came to us from a horrific hoarding situation in Trinity. The hoarder died and multiple rescue groups came swooping in to gather up and rescue the many dogs.
Amazingly, Charlotte and many of the other dogs have the most wonderful, loving personalities despite how they were living. Many dogs were chained to various things outside (sheds, tractors, whatever) and even the house dogs were living in squalor.
We can only guess at her breed mix. Rest assured the white on her muzzle is NOT from age, it is just her pretty tri coloring. She is a young girl with bright teeth and she has an amazing disposition. She does have a bobbed tail, as did another dog from the same hoarder.
She is submissive natured and so very sweet and friendly, wanting to make new friends with everyone even though she may act a tiny bit shy right at first. Just give her a few minutes and she will become your best friend for life. She has adapted very quickly to her new life here with us.
Charlotte is a gentle, snuggly girl who has obviously been a mommy several times.
She is humble and kind. She really adores hugs and cuddles and will most certainly be very happy to snuggle with you on the sofa, in the big people bed, or anywhere you want.
For a pup from such a bad situation, she is very trusting and bonds quickly. She rolls over for tummy rubs and stretches out happily so that you can pet her all over. She easily gives kisses and is so affectionate.
She is wonderful with her male kennel mate (Charlie, from the same rescue) and you should have seen how excited she was when she was first allowed to run freely in our huge play yard, running like the wind, so happy with the new experiences of space and clean green grass.
She is friendly to most polite, sociable male dogs her size or smaller but is a lady and does not put up with rude dogs who try to hump her or act like they are king of the world. She had enough of that stuff in her old home at the hoarders since no one was neutered or spayed there (they are now!).
She can be picky about her female doggie friends so would probably be happiest as an only dog in her new home. We are thinking she is just totally tired of having to deal with a pack of dogs and needs a break! Maybe she had to protect her puppies from other dogs in her prior situation.
Charlotte really does have a special personality. She is alert, intuitive and sensitive to her people. She is a smart girl and will be easy to train. She has a kind spirit. She will obviously be a faithful and good dog in her new home.
She has never experienced things like leash walks or toys or the big wide world outside her muddy back yard, so she will need just a little time to learn about all that stuff. An experienced owner would be ideal, but she should easily fit in well in most any household.
Since the dogs in the hoarding situation did not get preventative medications, Charlotte is heartworm positive but she is already on the slow, gentle treatment that allows her to live a normal life in the meantime. All she needs to do is stay on the monthly preventative that all dogs should be given and take a few rounds of inexpensive antibiotics. We have found that this easy, inexpensive, and much safer treatment results in pups becoming completely free of the heartworms over time.
She can still come home with you today!
