Mr. Charlie is a friendly, playful boy who came to APA! paralyzed in his back end. He's now been fitted for wheels so he can get around more easily, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. He loves going for walks, chasing a tennis ball and playing with toys.

At the end of the day, Mr. Charlie loves nothing more than cuddling on the couch with his people. (His incredibly soft and fluffy hair makes him perfect for snuggling!) While he wouldn't mind sharing your bed with you, he will sleep soundly through the night on his own cozy little pallet on the floor.

This people-loving pup has been around children of all ages, from newborn to teenagers, and gets along great with them. He prefers dog buddies his size or smaller, and could live with another pint-sized pal. Mr. Charlie can be crated when left alone, but is happier when he's got a little more room to roam. He was house-trained before his paralysis, and is now adapting to his new routine for potty breaks.

He might need a little extra care, but the love you'll get in return is more than worth it. Come meet this adorable boy today!
