Meet our handsome little poser, Charlie!
Charlie came to us as a stray and is looking for his perfect human to share all the cuddles and ALL the belly rubs with! Charlie is a true gentleman and loves to show off all his tricks, like sit, lay down and paw… Anything for a tasty treat! Charlie loves to snuggle and snooze and loves to spend his days lazing around indoors with his favourite stuffies!
Although Charlie is a big coach potato at heart, this goofy boy gets extremely excitable on his walks and often gets frustrated when he cannot run up and say hello to other dogs. His perfect human will need to be able to handle his strength, and be willing to work with him on training and desensitization exercises in a trigger free environment.
Due to Charlie’s excitable behaviours, Charlie is looking for a home with a yard where he can live his best life and be able to enjoy being outside. An apartment would not be suitable for this bigger-than-life guy!
If you’re looking for a life-long cuddle buddy and best friend, then you may have found your match!
