Charlie was rescued over a year ago and is more than ready to find his "forever" home. Although he has been in foster care and had plenty of opportunities to socialize and meet new dogs, he deserves his own people. Charlie is approximately 5 to 6 years old and weighs in the 40 pound range. He is solid muscle and is a high energy boy that will need an active family. Charlie can be a bit high-strung and anxious, especially in new situations and at the vet so he probably needs to go to an experienced adopter. It takes him a while to learn to trust and he will need a patient family willing to work with him and give him time to adjust. While he has been fostered with children as young as 2 years old, he would likely do best in a home with older children (12+) or no children. He is good with most dogs but does better with females over males, and dogs his size or smaller that are more on the submissive side. Charlie has learned to co-exist with cats. Charlie has made a huge amount of progress since his rescue and has excellent house manners. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, micro-chipped and finished immiticide treatment for heart worms in November. He should test negative this summer.
If interested in meeting Charlie, please submit an application (link above). If you would like more information or more pictures, please email me. His adoption fee is $300.
