Charlie in Nashville, TN


Here is Charlie with his new family…

Charlie is a handsome 4-year-old Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel born 10/12/2018. He came into rescue because his family is away a lot; they felt he would do better with someone home more. Charlie does love to keep tabs on his foster parents and follows then around the house in typical Cavalier form! Once he knows you are going to be in a room for a while, he will find a cozy spot to lay and take a little nap until you are onto the next thing. We will be looking for a home with someone home most of the time.

Charlie has been in a home with children and a large dog who he adored. He would do well with both. He really enjoyed playing with his dog-mate and would probably enjoy a playful but respectful dog sibling.

Charlie enjoys long walks on his leash and will stand by the door to go out. He would benefit from a little more help on his leash walking skills so as not to cut in front of you but he is not a puller and overall does great. He stands so nice and still while getting leashed up with just a thump, thump, thump of his tail to let you know he is happy and excited for the next adventure!

He is such a handsome boy with gorgeous, adoring eyes. He has a face which is very expressive and it certainly can melt your heart. He loves to cuddle, get scratches and be loved. Charlie does love to cuddle but also takes breaks to lay on the cool floor. He tends to run a little hot sometimes. Charlie likes to fetch and play with you with his toys. He loves to roll around on his back with his toys between his paws in the air. They really aren’t trying to get away but he likes to pretend they are! He’s so cute!

Charlie is a good little car rider and even took a couple of hour trip with his fosters. He did wonderfully. He will get in the car by himself and waits to get out with guidance.

Charlie has been brought up to date on vaccines, preventatives and was neutered while in rescue. He will need to be supervised initially until he gets used to the smells in his new home so as not to mark. That desire may quell even more in a few weeks post neuter.
