Charlie is a happy-go-lucky, precious little guy who has NO idea that he's at all different. Well, of course, he knows he's Special, but different??? No Way! Despite his amputated front leg, Charlie can do any and everything any other dog can do! This Darling is thought to be a Rat Terrier mix and he weighs approximately 10 pounds. He's about 10 months old, and has been fully vaccinated, neutered, and kept on regular, monthly heartworm prevention. His leg had been evaluated by at several vets, and the decision NOT to amputate was made after those consultations. However, after one of his flying leaps from on-high, he bruised it badly enough that an Orthopedic vet suggested it was probably an ongoing issue, if we didn't amputate the leg now. So, Charlie has now had surgery and we have a couple of after-surgry pictures so far. Charlie is getting around fine already since he didn't use the leg for support, anyway. He hardly misses it! He's beautifully leash trained, and looks forward to his walks! He's housetrained to wee-wee pads, but much prefers to wait and go outside! He's energetic and needs plenty of chew bones and at least one like-sized playmate to run and frolic with to expend some of that energy. Still, as busy as he is, Charlie is as sweet as pie, Loves to cuddle and gives THE sweetest kisses you can imagine. If this special little guy sounds like someone you could fall in love with, please apply to adopt him today! If you think he's cute in these pictures, you should just see him in person!
