found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Like most older dogs, Charlie has some arthritis in his rear legs so he can't handle long stairways, though he can manage a few steps here and there. He gets along well with the other dogs at his foster home, but he would also be perfectly happy if he were an only dog in his forever home. He is very fond of kitties, so a little feline companionship would also be great. Charlie loves children and has lived with them both in his previous home and at his foster home; however, young children would not be a good fit with him, since he can sometimes be a bit of a grouchy old man. He is not aggressive, but because of his arthritis, it would be easy for young, active children to accidentally hurt him. Older, gentle children would be fine.
Charlie has a very strong herding instinct and must have a fenced yard at his forever home. He is also a vocal collie who, like a garrulous old man, enjoys the sound of his own voice. Once he starts talking, he just doesn't seem to know when to stop. His foster mom is working with him on this, and it sometimes helps to redirect his attention to something else. She believes that living in a quiet, low key home would help with his barking.
Charlie is a loving, sweet, collie boy who is still enjoying life to the fullest. He can no longer race up and down stairs as he once did, but give him good friends (canine, feline or human), lots of plushy toys and a soft bed to lie on and he will be a very happy guy. Now all that's missing from his life is that perfect, forever home.
