found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Doggie Disposition: Charlie is shy, cautious and suspicious at first, morphing into hyper/energetic and enthusiastic. He is trainable, and has a protective instinct. Charlie likes other dogs, people of all ages whether he has met them before or not, going for walks, car rides, and even cats! Charlie loves going for walks and playing with other dogs at the dog park. While Charlie likes people, he is slightly fearful of strangers and needs to be introduced rather than cornered by them.
Canine Preparedness: Charlie is house and crate trained. He is used to a collar and leash, and usually does not jump on people or pull on the leash. Charlie has learned the commands sit, heel, leave it, down/off, and come.
Necessary Notes: Charlie was a stray before going to the shelter, so he developed a couple of issues. One is resource guarding, where Charlie will guard his food and toys. He also gulps his food. This may get better with time, effort and regular feeding. Resources are limited for strays. Charlie can be easily startled and frightened by sudden loud noises. He has been known to chew wood, so supervision is good. Charlie may bark or howl sometimes. Charlie has a lot of energy and likes to play, so living with another dog would be nice, although it would be best to be fed separately.
If you have older children and a play-scape, you will find Charlie back there climbing the rock wall or sliding down the slide! Charlie loves to play and go for walks. When he is put into his crate, you might swear that Charlie can talk! His soulful expressions will make you a believer! If Charlie had been born a human, he would be in the NBA. He jumps high to catch toys! All in all, Charlie is a goofy, loveable oversized puppy that will steal your heart!
