My Story

Date into Rescue:10/25/2018 

Reason for being in rescue: owner passed away

Special Needs: A few times in his life, Charlie has had small seizures. He is not on any medication and it has been almost a year since he had one. Vet says to just watch him. He also has food sensitivities and is on a special food.  Right now he is on a run of prednisone for itchies.  

What kind of home would be best for me: CJ is used to a lot of human attention so we do not think he would do well in a home where people are away at work or there is a lot of activity.  His idea of a great home is quiet, tv watching, two walks a day....

What is my personality like: Sweet, happy and affectionate.  CJ loves nothing more than to sit in a lap.  CJ is an older dog with a long history of excellent medical care.  He has some food allergies and will need to be watched for that.  Otherwise, he's a great companion kind of guy.  He is okay with most other dogs and ignored the cat.  He does not need other dogs in his home as long as he gets lots of people interaction.  

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly and easy

Tips and Tidbits: If you are looking for a lap pet to spend your days with, CJ could be your boy!

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.

Potential Adopters

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.
