Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Maltese/Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup) Mix
  • Color: White - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Charlie was impounded at a high kill shelter because his owner was incarcerated. He was in pretty bad shape, very thin and had a long matted and dirty coat. For whatever reason, his owner did not come back for him. We rescued Charlie right before the busy 4th of July holiday when the shelter was very crowded.

Charlie is Maltese/Poodle "Maltipoo" mix, about 3-4 years old, and weighs 7.5 pounds. He does need to gain a pound or two. He is good with most other dogs but likes his space at times too and he has no reaction to cats. He is a little shy at first but once he gets to know you, he will follow you everywhere. He does have some separation anxiety and cries and barks a bit when left alone. So he would do best in a home where he is not left long hours.

Charlie enjoys riding in the car and likes his walks. He is working on his potty training and is almost there. He needs someone to help build his confidence. We will not place him in a home with young children.

About Smooch Pooch Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a not-for-profit animal rescue organization. We rescue dogs from high kill shelters, many of them the day they are to be euthanized and give them a second chance at life. We also rescue stray dogs and abandoned animals and find loving homes for them.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have an actual facility. Our dogs are in foster homes until their forever homes are found. We usually hold our adoption events at Petco 2-3 Saturdays a month from 1:30pm-4pm. Please contact us for our schedule and if you would like to meet one of our dogs. Please keep in mind our schedule changes from time to time so please contact us directly to confirm, NOT Petco.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in our adoption process is to complete an adoption application on our main website prior to coming to meet the animal(s) you are interested in. The application can be found at www.smoochpoochrescue.com and will give us an idea if the animal will be a good match for you, your family and lifestyle. We also require an adoption contract, adoption fee and home visit. We DO NOT operate on a first come basis but rather the best suited home for our animals.
