Charlie (LOCAL 12/29/12)'s Info...
Rescue Group: PAWS NEW ENGLAND
|Breed:||Shepherd (Unknown Type) Mix||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Young|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Male|
Single male, new to area, seeks long-term committed relationship.
Me – Young, handsome, playful, and a long-&-lean 45 lbs and between 1-2 years old. I like ball games, back rubs, long walks on the leash, and evenings at home snuggling. My current relationship says I “have some maturing to do” (paw quotes), but I just gaze into her eyes & wiggle my splotched nose at her & she falls back under my spell. I like everyone & everything I meet! [Except those light-up yard deer whose heads rotate; those freak me out a little.] I especially like the two-legged little squirts – their faces are at JUST the right level for kisses, & they make this fantastic sound … a “giggle” I think it’s called. I evaluate everything based on its potential as food, playmate, or chew toy – and I gotta’ tell ya’, it’s a dog’s world out there!
You – Like to play, like to snuggle, have time for our relationship, and know where we can find food. And play toys to chew on.
Sound like a match? Wanna’ meet? Lunch? Walk in the park? Game of Frisbee? Love to! Have your people contact my people. I am ready to go baby!
Charlie is house-trained, crate-trained, up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative, neutered, microchipped, and ready for his forever home.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
Interested in adopting this fantastic canine? Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond much quicker to applications than to emails as we receive a voluminous amount of email each day and it’s impossible to respond to all of them in a timely manner even though we try.
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
PET INSURANCE: Paws New England as recently joined VCA Animal Hospitals in a program providing new adopters with a certificate for an initial health exam at a VCA Hospital and treatment of certain conditions free of charges for the first 5 days. This is a great program and PAWS is thrilled to be participating in for our adopter. There are also numerous other pet insurance programs available to shelter animals.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI.
UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF RHODE ISLAND BOARDED EITHER PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. If a dog is listed as "local", he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
We are often asked, "Why would you charge 'so much' for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support ALL rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in discounted vet care, and many people will want to adopt it; an older dog with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt him/her. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others.
