King Charles (aka Charlie)
King Charles is also known as Charilie. This boy is a SUPER dog in every way. Gets along with all other dogs, and LOVES people. He has a big blocky head and build like a lab, but with some hound coloring. VERY pretty face. He is about 4 years old & 60 lbs. He would make an excellent family dog or all around fun dog to have around. He is HW-.A volunteer recently took him on an outing to town. Here is what she says happened!King Charles (Charlie) and I had a wonderful outing today. I put my easy walk halter on him quite easily and after a little reservation he was ready for a truck ride to town. First we had to go to the drive thru at the bank and he was given 2 treats. Next we went to a friend's home so I could get some good pictures of him. He loved the cool green grass sooooo much that he just crawled and crawled in it, and then rolled over for a belly rub. His next adventure was walking about 3 blocks to Padgette's Pharmacy where we both enjoyed feeling the cool air coming out the window as Charlie put his paws up on the window to see what was going on inside. Next even though he was given a bath yesterday at the shelter, he was covered in fleas so he was given another bath in flea shampoo. He was perfect for that too. He greeted a person to get patted and greeted my dogs (I'm wondering if he was smelling Opal since she was his kennel mate at one time.) Unfortunately shelter life called him and as he stood on the steps to the trailer, the little ones came out and barked and someone growled, his tail still did the friendly tail wag. Jeremy then fitted him with a flea collar and back to his pen he went. He will make a wonderful pet, loved the truck ride, didn't pull on the leash, jumped on me, but gently, and looked with his big brown eyes. Cars going by did not bother him except when Robin pulled up in the pharmacy parking lot in her van, he shyed from that a little.Oh, and by the way, all the pets at the shelter really need YOUR help! Volunteers for dog walkers, shelter workers, transport to and from vet appointments, and foster homes are DESPERATELY needed. Overpopulation in our area is a huge problem. Contact the shelter by email or phone if you can be part of the solution!
