Bio: Charlie is a Beautiful, loving dog, that has had a very rough start in life. He is still young enough to learn, and is eager to learn. He has gone from Survival mode, and not knowing how to do much of anything. To A quick study and very eager to please. He is looking for his forever home. 

Charlie was locked in the closet and was starving and extremely underweight. Full of intestinal parasites, and was about 30 pounds underweight. Animal Control was going to take him but because of his condition, the officer thought he would be put down. I asked that we be given the chance to at least take him to the Vet and attempt to get him healthy. Well he's put on about 30 pounds and looks great. He does have some emotional issues. He hates to be left, he wants to be in your lap. (Ouch) He's Heavy! He guards his food bowl. But that is getting better. He has not been exposed to a lot of kids. He does seem to like other dog's. Charlie wants to be loved And is very affectionate.
We only exposed Charlie to Two children the first one was a little girl Charlie laid all over her and just couldn't get enough of her. The next day a little boy, same age walked into the kitchen and by Charlie's food and water bowls and Charlie started growing and barking at him. We immediately removed Charlie from the room. And have made several attempts to introduce Charlie and James but James doesn't want Anything to do with Charlie. And Charlie doesn't care for James either.

The $350.00, Re homing fee is going to pay for him to be neutered, and all of his shots updated, including his rabies vaccination. Copies of proof of his vaccinations will be given to you also.
