Charlie is just six years old and weighs about 20 lbs. He's in great health, although he needs to lose a couple pounds. We hear he is a "social butterfly" and enjoys spending lap time with his humans. He is also house trained, uses a doggie door and is good with other dogs and cats too. Charlie has never been around young children and does not like to be picked up or grabbed at, so he would do best in a home with adults and grown children who understand about giving a dog his own space. He is fine having his belly rubbed, it's just when people try to pick him up he becomes troubled. This boy is super friendly and loving and will make a great addition to the right family!
