Charlie is good on a leash and needs lots of exercise to tire him out. He is a good walking partner and with minimal training, he might enjoy jogging. He is well-mannered and will sit, stay for a short time, come, shake, lay down, and get in the back (of the car).
Charlie loves to eat and is a counter surfer so don’t turn your back on him. He will sit at the doorway while you cook, but he needs some consistency training. Food, bones, and toys can be removed from his mouth without aggression or resistance. He will however growl if another dogs tries to do the same, otherwise, he gets long marvelously with other dogs. He reportedly snapped at a child that was teasing him, but generally enjoys the attention of all people.
Charlie has a fondness for tissues and clean socks. He will seek out tissues, so place boxes up high. He doesn’t appear to chew socks, but he loves to carry them all over the house. His favorite places to sit are at the window or on the back of the sofa (preferably by the window). He enjoys cuddling and having his belly rubbed. Charlie is neutered, micro-chipped and weighs 32 lbs.
Charlie is looking for a loving home with a big backyard and an excess of socks. You can see more photos of Charlie on our website at: www.acsrwa.org If you would like to meet Charlie, contact the ACSR for an application and a play date. His adoption fee is $250.
