Woof woof, and welcome to Charleston's page! At 4-years old, he has a great mix of young energy and sleepy snuggles. He loves to take walks and sniff around to his heart's content. He even walks like a true gentleman with his gentle leader! Plush squeaky toys are also some of his favorite things!

Charleston is also a super smartie, and is eager to learn lots of tricks to help him be the best boy he can be in the home. He loves treats and already knows "sit, "down, "shake, and is fully potty trained! He is making great progress on his crate training already should his future person choose to use one.

While he would prefer to be the center of your world, he would be willing to discuss a well-matched doggie sibling and maybe even older human siblings. Charleston would thrive in a low traffic home that can help him adjust to home life with semi-active humans so he could stretch his long legs on walks.

Come meet Charleston today to fall in love with this gentle giant and also follow his antics on Instagram @chocolate_factory_charleston.

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?

We are currently closed to the public and are only open by appointment (foster or adopter), but we are still diligently working to place dogs in foster homes! You can inquire about fostering a specific dog by submitting an inquiry through the dog's individual profile on this website or by emailing [email protected] to get more information about how to be matched with a foster dog.

Please do not visit our shelters without talking with us first. To prevent community spread, we cannot have large crowds gathering in our shelters.
