My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Handsome Charly is a 5 year old Labrador Retriever/hound mix who weighs around 70 pounds. He is a very handsome guy for sure! Charly has been through a long period of training that should continued. Adopters should be experienced dog owners.

With his medium energy level Charly likes to spend time outdoors playing ball and exploring his fenced backyard. He would do in a quiet home. Long walks and daily runs are mainstream activities for this boy. After a good walk, Charly is a mellow boy with good indoor manners. He can be very happy laying around on his dog bed with his belly up. Due to his temperament and size, he would do best in a home with older children - 14 years old and above.

Charly has been socialized with other dogs. We are not sure what he thinks about cats yet as he has not been cat tested. Charly is house, crate and leash trained. 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 completely mastered.

Charly will thrive in a home with lots of attention, structure and routine. A well trained Charly will be a happy, loyal Charly and an amazing lifelong companion for his owner.

Charly is more than ready to be someone’s best friend and part of a forever home. 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.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

Please submit an application at the link in the Adoption Application section on the Dog Star Rescue website.



A Dog Star Rescue volunteer will contact you for an interview to learn more about the wonderful home you offer. Be sure to contact your vet.


Meet the Pet

If you are selected as a good fit for the dog, a meet and greet appointment will be set up. All family members and pets must be present.


Approve Application

Consider getting pre-approved. Go to the link in the Adoption Application section to get the process started.

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.

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.
