Meet Charlie (20220705-06)
History: owner surrender due to change in life circumstance.
Foster update: He likes to play fetch with a ball, very food/treat oriented. In a short period of time we have him responding to his name and sitting. Dropping the ball when playing fetch is not his strong suit and he gets a little mouthy.
He walks surprisingly well on a leash. Pulling when he wants to go smell something but when just walking he is along side most of the time. He is a little timid of loud trucks when walking near roads and will push into your leg a little. Some whining when initially put in his crate for the night. He doesn't seem to be a Barker. Vocalizing when he wants something or when playing gets too exciting. He is inquisitive with frogs, likes tracking squirrels as they jump from tree to tree. Unsure what to make of fireflies or butterflies.
He likes belly rubs, Kongs full of treats.
We have been slowly brushing him to get lots of hair off him but still have a ways to go as he thinks it's a game.
He really is a good boy and just needs some training.
Older kids, such as teens would be best due to his puppy energy and habit of mouthing.
but needs time to decompress and a home that is quiet so he is not overstimulated.
he loves playing with other dogs.
with slow introductions and a dog savvy cat that will not run or Charlie will chase. However he is chasing just to play.
partially-his cues may be missed, He will pace around which is generally a good indication he needs to go.
will whine for a bit, but a kong with treats and peanut butter and a bully stick and/or ball helps comfort him.
needs to be secured at all times. Fenced in yard preferred.
but will pull at times. Charlie is a big puppy who will benefit from basic obedience training.
would be good for Charlie to have another dog to play with.
