Charlie is such an easygoing dude when he's hanging out in the house. He can be reluctant to meet new humans, but once he's properly introduced to them, he becomes their comfortable buddy - a happy and snuggly homebody. He's so exuberant when he sees the people he knows and loves.

This lively boy is excited to exercise, and he loves going for walks, jogs, and runs with his foster. He's working hard on his leash manners. At home, he's just as content to curl up next to his people and play with his toys. He's also worked on learning new skills. He already answers to "sit," "down," "off" and "come." He's also house- and crate-trained.

Charlie would love to move to a calm home where he can hang out with the people he's come to love. A quiet home with few visitors would be best. He may do well with older teens and a well-matched dog buddy. Come invite him to go for a jog, and he'll trot right home with you.
Come meet your new best friend
