My name is Charlotte!
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Have you been searching for the dog of your dreams? Well, you ought to take a look at our special girl, Charlotte, a wonderfully sweet, beautiful, long-legged 3 year old hound mix (or Plott Hound?) who we found at the Chicago pound after her owners left her there, skinny and frightened. Since she has come to us, she has gained about 15 pounds and is healthy and strong at 75 pounds.
Charlotte is an awesome dog. She is extremely quiet, well-mannered, housebroken, and she gets along very well with her canine foster sister and all the dogs she has met. She loves to go for walks and is an A+ student when it comes to listening to directions not to pull on her leash, and she's gradually learning to control her urge to chase squirrels and rabbits. Charlotte is initially quite shy and unsure of herself in new and transitional situations, but with patience, time and reassurance, she adjusts and becomes more trusting and confident.
She enjoys playing with other medium/large dogs, but she might try to dominate high energy puppies and small dogs. She loves to run and explore although dog parks can be overwhelming for her. Charlotte loves getting rubbed and petted, and she loves to curl up on the couch with her head in a lap. Sleeping at night next to her human seems to provide Charlotte with a sense of security. For this reason we believe that she will do best in a home where she is welcome on the furniture and bed.
Charlotte needs ongoing reassurance that the rest of her life will not be like her past. For Charlotte to be successful in her adoptive home, we want to match Charlotte with a patient and loving family who will be sensitive to the triggers that make her anxious, and participate in ongoing efforts to help her evolve into the happy, confident dog she is well on the road to becoming. We think she would do best in a home where she is not left along for long periods of time. If you think that might be you, Charlotte would love to meet you.
Charlotte's adoption fee of $200 includes: vet exam, heartworm test (neg), distemper-parvo combo vaccination, rabies vaccination, bordetella vaccination, fecal exam, deworming, flea control, microchip and spay.
