A Little Bit About Me
This is Charley, but his name might as well be 'Mozzarella'. He LOVES cheese and it is certainly the way to his heart! This cutie came to us as a stray and is ready to find a home where there are cheese and warm beds. He says that stuff is hard to find on the street!
Charley is about 13 pounds and we think he is about 2 years old. He is the perfect size to snuggle next to you. He doesn't like being restrained though, so no big hugs! His vet will need to know about this. Charley likes to explore with his nose, so a Scenting Class would be great for him! MHS offers these classes and attending them with Charley would help him bond with his new people. Just remember to bring cheese! Several 'sniff and potty' walks around the neighborhood for exercise would be great for Charley. He doesn't really like being alone, so he would be happiest with someone who is home a lot.
While he was here, Charley met several dogs of various sizes. He is very selective of whom he likes and needs work on doggie manners, so no dog parks! Did we mention treats? Well, Charley likes yummy chews (especially cheesy ones... Did we mention he likes cheese?) so much that he would greatly prefer that you not take them away from him. For this reason and the fact that he does not like being restrained, we recommend Charley be with adults only or in a family where the kids are OVER 16 and will be able to give him the space he needs.
