Charley hasn’t had an easy life. Her foster mom says she was left at the shelter not once, but twice, and was most likely kept in confinement or left outdoors prior to her arrival.
Her teeth are extremely worn, probably from having to eat things other than food to survive, but she recently had dental surgery and is in good health. Now that Charley is with kind people who care, she just wants to be loved. She is shy at first, but has enjoyed the company of everyone she meets.
“She just wants to sit in your lap or bury her head in your lap,” said her foster mom Emily Ciraolo. “She didn’t know what treats were, but now she sure does now and even does a happy dance when it’s time for breakfast or dinner. Truthfully, she didn’t know about anything, including shadows. It’s clear she never had a consistent, loving home.”
Charley would do best in a home as the only dog and with an owner committed to her continued training. She knows sit, lay down, roll over, wait, stay, go to bed, and paw. She doesn’t know how to be a dog around other dogs so that’s why it’s recommended she’s the only dog, although she currently do-exists with another dog and has shown significant progress.
She is housebroken and loves her crate and does well when he foster mom is at work. She is 6 or 7 years old, but has a lot of spunk. People often mistake her for a puppy because she’s so cute.
