Charlie's Story...
Charlie is 3 year old high energy Shepherd mix/Golden Retriever mix who was saved from a horrible hoarding situation by our great rescue team. He has come such a long way since he was first rescued. Charlie might always have a ‘quirky’ personality because of what he has been through, but he makes progress every day, and has blossomed into a fun-loving dog. Charlie thrives when around other dogs. He loves to wrestle and rough and tumble with dogs in his size range, is very gentle with small dogs, and even does great with cats, horses, goats, and chickens! Although he is a very polite houseguest and can be left alone with no problems, he does like to have the option of his crate. He is also house trained and will politely ask to be let out. He can be a little nervous around men at first, but warms up quickly. He is not particularly food motivated, but will approach strangers if offered a treat. His absolute favorite thing to do is go for walks. He even loves going on runs and makes a perfect hiking or jogging partner! With proper direction, he has wonderful leash manners. He comes when called and knows STAY, WAIT, and NO. He does not have an aggressive bone is his body and is not a barker. He is fine in his comfort zone and likes the routine and the familiar. While Charlie is not an escape-artist, he could be a flight risk if all exits from his familiar environment are not secured or if he is left outside unattended. We have concerns that if Charlie were ever in an unfamiliar situation he would run out of fear. He is fast and would be very hard to catch. For this reason, we recommend a GPS (perhaps martingale) system. Charlie needs a yard and a home with another dog. Please do not apply unless you have both. Charlie is a sweet, loving dog and will make someone a wonderful companion!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Charlie, a Encino Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Golden Retriever for sale in Encino, or seeking a Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Encino.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Encino already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Encino breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Golden Retriever breeders who help with Shepherd (Unknown Type)/Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Encino paves the way for another one to be saved.
