Charlie is a 10 month old Brittany mix that weighs 47 pounds. Charlie had a very rough past, so we want to make sure he has a wonderful future. Charlie has a fluffy coat, a long tail and a black button nose.
Charlie was pulled from a high kill shelter in Texas. He suffered from a horrible case of ring worm that required him to be crated and kept away from the other dogs. Because of this, he can have random personal space issues. Simple vocal corrections and he will respond with submissive obedience. We think he would be best as an only dog, but if you have a strong leader that can teach him the doggie ropes, then he would love the opportunity to play. He loves to throw the ball up and play by himself. Even though he spent a lot of time in his crate as a young pup, he still enjoys sleeping in it and is perfectly crate trained.
Charlie still has some growing to do, so he will need a yard with a secure 6 ft fence. He is currently jogging short distances a couple times a week to burn off that puppy energy. He would make the perfect workout partner for an active owner. Charlie needs a home without kids, cats, or any type of small animal.
If you have an active lifestyle and you are an experienced dog handler, then Charlie would make a great addition to your family. He is healthy, UTD on all vaccinations, heart worm negative, (on preventative), neutered, and micro chipped. His adoption fee will be $325 to offset his vetting and to allow NBRAN to rescue more of these wonderful family members. Please complete the on-line application by visiting http://www.nbran.org/adoptappl.asp. Charlie is eligible for our canine railroad. He can be transported up to 1400 miles from Colorado at no additional charge.
Once the application has been completed, you will be contacted by your state coordinator. A phone interview, home visit, and vet check will be required as part of the approval process.
