Charlotte is an amazing girl dog. She is about 2 years old and will need a family to give her a few days or a week to get comfortable and come to her people for affection. Once she does, she is so in love with the humans around her. She loves to hug, to tuck her head under your chin while she snuggles on your lap. She is so cute doing her happy dance whenever she sees us walk in. She will wake you by pulling the blankets off of you so she can fall to your face and snuggle you awake. She sleeps quietly at the end of the bed all night long. Charlotte loves a walk but is cautious about other people or dogs. She is a very good watchdog and will alert to any person at the door or coming down your hallway. She wants to please so much that if you have to raise your voice to her she will lay down and show her belly, begging for some love. Charlotte is being fostered in Central IL. She is being fostered with dogs, cats, kids, and really doesn't like kids much. She would be happy as an only dog, but is playful with other dogs, and prefers them to be her size and to be able to stand up to her pushy ways. She barks at cats, but can coexist with those that don't challenge her. Charlotte would prefer a single or couple to adopt her with no children. She will bark at other family members if there are more than two. She is not aggressive at all, just noisy. She is potty pad trained and will also go outside if you prefer. Charlotte wants a big fenced yard. She loves to race around at top speeds being chased by or chasing another small dog. She would probably make a great jogging buddy, and with training, a fabulous agility dog. But first, it will take patience. Do you have what it takes to earn Charlotte's love and trust?

About ARROW Animal Rescue Revolution on Wheels

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a family run no kill foster based dog rescue located in Normal, IL with foster homes all across the state of Illinois. We rescue dogs from animal control and animal shelters in Missouri, Kentucky, Texas, Illinois and Iowa with more states being added all the time. We also accept owner relinquishments. We fully vet all of the dogs in our rescue, place them in loving foster homes, often with other dogs, cats and kids. We find them forever homes through sites like this as well as Facebook, and Petfinder. We have been involved in rescue for 3 years with other rescues but felt that we would have made other decisions when it comes to euthanizing, how dogs were being treated, and the adoption process. We thought we could do a better job. We only euthanize dogs in our rescue if they are in pain or suffering and cannot be helped. We provide training to dogs that need this prior to adoption.

We also have a pet matching service so if you don't see what you are looking for on our rescue page, please message us and we can help you find the perfect pet, have it transported to us, vet it, and make it available for adoption to you!

Our Adoption Process...

All adopters must fill out an application to adopt on our website.

You are welcome to meet any of our dogs in their foster homes once you have an approved application. Since we are a small family run rescue with a few volunteers at times when there is a high volume of applications it may take longer than 5 days to process your application. You are free to contact us at any point at to check on the status of your application.

After application is approved, we do a home visit either prior to or at the time of the adoption. Minimum adoption donations is $275 for adults and $350 for puppies 9 months or under. Some dogs have sponsorships by donors which will reduce the cost for the adopter. Payment by Paypal to or in cash at the time of the adoption.

There is an adoption contract stipulating that you return the dog to our rescue if for any reason you are not able to keep them. The dog's microchip will be registered to the rescue for the life of the dog. You will be required to keep your pup on heart worm preventative year around.
