Why am I with a rescue group? 

Our first encounter with Charlie was in 2015, but he never actually made it to the farm. He was a, what we call; "transport fail". This means he was on his way to the farm, but the people transporting him decided to adopt him then. His previous home has mentioned that Charlie had no issues until he had 2 dogs turn on him in the home and then he started to bite and snip at his owners. He was returned to us 9/20/2017. We've been watching him ever since.

Charlie has not actually bitten anyone here but he does growl when he starts to feel uncomfortable and DOES NOT like to be picked up or pushed into things he is not comfortable with. You can only pet him on his terms. Charlie is actually very smart and can open his crate by himself so he has to be in a crate with double latches. He walks great on a leash and knows how to sit.  Charlie is okay with other dogs for the most part but there has been times with certain dogs he has gotten into fusses with. We believe he is dog selective. Despite his issues, he is just like any other young dog that loves to go on walks and his tennis balls! 

Charlie is friendly but don't reach down.  Ignore him and make him come to you. If you push Charlie or reach for him, he will bite you!

Charlie needs a home with a very experienced owner who can manage his behavior. He does not do well with children. He does not like to be picked up. Charlie needs an adults-only home with strong, confident owners. We don't know that Charlie will ever accept a home outside of rescue. He has meet and greets but they have not gone well. Charlie is happy living in rescue and is very loved by his caregivers.
