Come meet Charlie!! We cannot believe this lovable pittie is still with us after almost 10 months! Sweet Charlie is a male ~1.5 y/o tan and white pittie mix with a big ol’ block head. He came to us as a stray in a shelter without an adoption program where he was skin and bones from being on the streets and almost blind due to entropic eyelids. He could barely see and fetch a ball, but the staff there was so enamored by his loveable personality that they spared him from almost certain euthanasia due to his eye condition. They performed his eye surgery and his eyes are no longer an issue at all. He has no trouble catching treats or scavenging the kitchen floor for crumbs. If you know anything about the overpopulation of unwanted of pit bulls in shelters you have to know that this has got to be a very special dog for him to have been saved.
Charlie loves nothing more than to give kisses and laze around all day with his humans, but he is also very energetic when it comes time to play or go on walks (which he has gotten 100x better on a leash since we first got him). Charlie currently lives with his foster brother, another male pittie, so he would be good with dogs. But his permanent home may only have a female dog, if any. Charlie recently got a new baby human brother and is great with him too! We wants nothing more than to show him love with kisses but is very respectful of his newborn space. He will still need formal obedience training but is very smart and very food motivated and would do very well in a structured training class. He is very good in the car, and has been obedient off leash, but he still needs to be better crate trained. He seems to hate the crate but is slowly being allowed loose in the house with no problems so far. Charlie would be great for an active working family since he doesn't mind sleeping ALL day but loves to run around and play when you get home.
