My story

Handsome Charly is a 4 year, 8 month old Labrador Retriever/hound mix who weighs around 70 pounds. He is a very handsome guy for sure! Be sure to get your camera ready because you will want pictures of this boy and lots of them. Charly likes to hit the ground running with his medium/high energy level. He would do best in a small family that is as active as he is. Long walks and daily runs are mainstream activities for this boy. He lets out his energy mostly when outdoors and when that energy is diminished, he is a mellow boy happy to be laying around with his belly up. Due to his robust energy and size, he would do best in a home with older children. Charly has been socialized with other dogs but can be selective about who he likes. We are not sure what he thinks about cats yet as he has not been cat tested. Charly is house, crate and leash trained. He loves going for walks and/or runs. When it comes to his crate, he is happy to walk inside and show everyone just how well behaved he can be. House training has been mastered but it is important to remember that accidents can happen while adjusting to a new home environment. Charly will thrive in a home where lots of attention can be given to him to help him become an amazing lifelong companion and part of the family. The perfect owner(s) will have the time, patience, and energy to help guide him through lots of exercise, socialization, and positive reinforcement. His sweet and gentle nature is part of his hallmark and natural charm. Charly is more than ready to be someone’s best friend and part of a forever family! Could that be you? Charly’s adoption fee is $500. That includes the cost of spaying/neutering, up to date vaccinations, foster care, rescue, and transport fees. To get the ball rolling, head over to our Adoption Application and submit your application today. A Dog Charly representative will contact you within 24 hours. To help speed up the process contact your vet and give them permission to speak with us. If you do not get a response within 24 hours of submitting your application, please check your spam folder.December 7, 2022, 5:39 am

Additional adoption info

Interested adopters are asked to complete an application to begin the adoption process. This valuable document helps us insure that we are finding the perfect match for both the dog and the family members. If your application looks like a good fit, you will be contacted by phone for an interview. This is an opportunity to learn more about the home life you offer and the known temperament and energy level of the dog that is available for adoption. In some cases we may find that a different adoptable dog may be more suitable for your lifestyle and would be brought to your attention. Next, you will speak with the previous foster families to learn more about the day to day needs and behavior of the dog as an extra measure to find the perfect match. In addition, your veterinarian will be contacted to confirm your dedication to the health and well being of your previous or current pets.
Finally DSR reserves the right to do a home inspection prior to the adoption approval.
While this may seem like a lengthy process it actually may only take a week or two. As a result you should only begin the adoption process when you are ready to welcome a dog into your home.
DSR makes every effort to insure our dogs are healthy, happy, and well cared for by our loving volunteers as they wait for their forever homes. All dogs are up to date on all vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and receive a health certificate before being transported. Our adoption fee is $450 and every penny goes towards the rescue of dogs in need.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

DSR's facility is located in Bloomfield, CT and is available by appointment only. We host adoption events every other week in the greater Hartford area. These are wonderful opportunities to meet all of our amazing adoptable dogs. Check out our Facebook page for the most up to date listing of upcoming events. Otherwise, dogs can be seen by appointment after completing the DSR application. Arrangements are made by the screening volunteer and coordinated with the foster family.

More about this rescue

Dog Star Rescue is a grass-roots effort started by a group of dog lovers with experience in the rescue world. The name Dog Star comes from the common name for the star Sirius, reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (Greater Dog). The symbolism of the star as a guide to a safe passage is what we strive to do for our adoptable dogs as we find them a new life with a loving family.
We work closely with shelters in the South as well as the New England states to save the lives of loving and loyal dogs who have lost their way and find themselves on death row. Our volunteers get these dogs the medical and emotional care they need so they can transition into a loving forever home. All of our amazing members are unpaid volunteers with a passion for helping dogs. They spend significant time each week helping guide dogs to a wonderful new life. If you ask our volunteers, they'll tell you they do it for a wide variety of reasons, including personal satisfaction in helping address a nation wide problem, their love of dogs, and a desire to have fun socializing with like-minded people. DSR is always looking for new volunteers to join our group so if this sounds like something you would like to be a part of please contact us.
