What kind of home would be best for me? This poor guy can't catch a break. Charlie has now been adopted and returned twice. The first time was to a family who tried but Charlie wanted quieter. The second time was to a college student with a fairly quiet life but Charlie did not want to be cuddled after 7 pm and so sadly was returned. So we are trying once more time before putting Charlie in our SOS program. Here is the wish list: Charlie needs someone home a good bit of the time. He loves people and wants only to be with you. He would be a good companion dog to another dog although he's not a player. He's a hang out kind of guy. He is also a "do my own thing" kind of guy. He gets tired after 7 pm and he wants to find a bed and get his rest. My best case home for him is one with a very experienced dog owner, several dogs so that Charlie can blend in and not have to be the one and only that constantly gets attention. He does not want that. He wants some attention, some walks and some fun but at the end of the day he does not want to be the one solely responsible for his owner's dog happiness.
What is my personality like: Charlie is a simple, easy going kind of guy who wants to hang out, play some bridge, go for a long, leisurely walk and then settle down to an evening of home activities. He loves attention, he loves to be petted (when it is on his terms) and touched and he loves to be talked to. He sleeps in a crate here and he knows to settle down. He eats in a crate here but once he is done eating, he's ready to get right back at your feet.
How do I act when I first meet new people: A little shy. He'll come up to you and take treats from you but he's not all over you. He's got his own personal space.
Tips and Tidbits: Charlie needs a retirement home who will understand he's been bounced a lot. He's got some issues. He needs a home that will let him be himself.
House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.
Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
