Charley in San Diego, CA

Just Adopted!

Here is Charley with his new mom...

Charley is a handsome 11-year-old, sweet loving gentleman who acts much younger that his years. Charley likes to be near his humans, but he’s not a constant lap dog. He likes to lie on the couch or a nice soft bed on the floor. He hangs out with his foster mom in the backyard when she is doing chores and sleeps in one of crates nearby. He wants to meet everyone when he is out on a walk. He needs a belly band in the house while he is learning new routines, but foster mom says he learns quickly. His hearing is good and comes when he is called. He loves to take walks and can do 1.5 miles without any stress. He is very polite to everyone inside or outside the house. He has a cat living with him in his foster home and does not pay much attention to the cat's antics. 

At his recent vet exam, it was noted that Charley has a small heart murmur at grade two but no medications are needed. Due to past dental disease, Charley has no teeth but this does not stop him from enjoying his kibble softened with a little water. 

Charlie is a little shy, but very sweet – All in all, he’s a friendly, low maintenance dog. Another dog or two would be fine in his forever home. An enclosed yard is a must. Someone home most of the time to help with potty training readjustment or a doggie door would be helpful.

Although not a bonded pair, Charley and Beckham (who is listed separately) have been fostered together and have becoming great friends. If you would like to consider adopting one or both of them please note that on your application.
