âHi, I'm Charley and I'm a 5-month old black Labrador Retriever mix. I have a bit of white on my toes just so you can find me in the dark, if necessary. I have been surrendered to the shelter because my owners were unable to care for me. I'm house-trained already so win-win for you!! I love balls and tug toys so let's pick some up on the way home!! I already know how to "sit" and would love to get some lessons so I can be a good little guy for you (and stop jumping up on people, because I may do that). I'm a little afraid of children, so if you have any, we may have to take it sssslllloooowwww for a while until we warm up to each other. I would love to meet you and jump up on you, but most of all, I would love to have you for my very own!!!!
