Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Maltese/Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Charlie is approximately 4-6 years old, 20 lb male Maltese/Terrier so some lucky family is going to get the best of two breeds. Charlie was abandoned at a local veterinarians office which left Charlie alone and very confused. He was taken to the shelter and scooped up by a foster mom who saw what a great dog he was.

He probably lived outside most of the time but learned very quickly to live as an inside family member. Adding to his great character, this little boy is missing his bottom front teeth showcased by his shiny canine teeth. It's makes his smile especially cute!

More than likely he spent his life in a world of, "No," because when he hears the word spoken directly to him, he tends to cower. That's nothing that a little family love can help with.

His is very social with other animals and lives in a family of 3 other 4-legged siblings. He has caught on very quickly to the routines of the foster family by following around the other dogs and his foster parents. Probably because of being abandoned with little or no attention, he isn't fond of being left alone. He cried much more at first than he does now so slowly he's learning to trust that his foster parents will be back. He would need to be in a home with at least one other four legged sibling because he is much happier with a friend. No children under 7 because Charlie is a little dog and little dogs do better with children over 7. Has not been cat tested. This is a bundle of all that is sweet and good; humble, happy, obedient, loves walks, loves to play with his 3 other foster sibling dogs, loves to cuddle, and loves a lap.

Charlie is neutered, microchipped, utd on vaccines, and ready to find his forever life with his forever family. Adoption questionnaire and home check required prior to adoption. No out of area adoptions. Rehoming fee: $150.00.

About One Heart At A Time Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Small non-profit rescue who helps save dogs on the "red-list" or euthanization list from county and city shelters. Educating the public on the health and concerns of animals with emphasis on spay and neuter programs.
This is NOT a shelter and we are all volunteers. The dogs rescued are housed in temporary foster homes until they are adopted. If you have a dog to rehome or you have found a dog, please contact the city shelter closest to you. You can also provide temporary housing for the dog until we can help locate it's family, OR, find a new family.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a boarding facility or central location to vist our animals. They are living in foster homes where they can begin to acclimate into a natural home environment. This makes the transition much smoother for the animal and adoptive family when placed into their forever homes. It also gives us the opportunity to learn so much more about the dog and make better matches into the lifestyles of families.
Adoption appointments are generally scheduled on a one-to-one basis with the dog or dogs of interests assuming there is a "match" between families and dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

General fees are per dog and there is an adoption contract stating all the rules and requirements.
Donations are always welcomed so that we may continue to save lives.
