Charlie, affectionately dubbed “little shop”, is a special guy in the hearts of TBL volunteers. He is great with other dogs, loves treats, loves toys, knows how to sit on command, housetrained, crate trained, and very affectionate. Despite his adorable, cuddly and fluffy exterior, this little 30 pound fella does need a little bit of time and space when meeting new people. Charlie will need a patient and experienced owner who will understands that he takes a little more time than the average pup to trust and be 100% comfortable with his surroundings. Since he can be very sensitive to quick and sudden movements toward him, he will be best in a home with no children. As long as there is a mutual understanding and trust established, Charlie really is a sweet and loving little dude. He likes it best if you let him approach you for petting, and when he does he will nuzzle you for extra rubs behind his ears and try to curl up in your lap. The first time Charlie went home with a volunteer he didn’t have a single accident, immediately picked up a toy to play with and ran around the yard, simply chipper as can be. He loves treats more than anything and has taken treats out of volunteers’ hands on a flat palm. Charlie is a little over 4 years of age as of December 2013. We have seen him thrive and shine in a warm and loving environment; just check him out with his favorite volunteer at our most recent WADIN event! Charlie knows it can be hard for an adult dog to find a forever home, especially if he’s the sort of fellow who requires a little more patience and understanding than other dogs, but he can’t give up hope and neither will we!
