Dog of the Week: Charley

Julia D Dog of the Week

Hi! My name is Charley Grace, but you can call me Charley. I’m only about 11 months old but have had a rough puppyhood. I was a “backyard dog” during my formative months so I’m wary of humans and scared of a lot of things. I’m slowly learning from my foster family that people are kind; I’m even starting to occasionally sneak up for a pat on the head and a scratch behind the ears. I’m great with other dogs, and I don’t even mind the housecats. I think older kids would be okay; younger ones might be a little too noisy for me. Loud sounds tend to frighten me. My foster mom says my adoptive family must have dogs for me to play with to give me confidence and teach me how to be a dog. A fenced-in yard is also a must so I can feel safe. You should see me play with Legacy (another awesome dog available for adoption from Last Hope!). My foster mom says that I’m a completely different dog when we play together. We don’t live far from each other, so our foster moms let us get together for playdates sometimes. It’s so much fun!  I’m still learning how to live indoors, so my new family should be patient while I keep learning that I need to potty outside. (I do love my crate and I never make a mess in there.) Will someone please give me a chance? I know that I’m not a “typical” dog, but I’m trying so hard to be! Last Hope even offers a free obedience course with my adoption so my family can bond with me. They even said they’ll support my new family for as long as they need to so that I can stay with them forever. Isn’t that awesome?

Charley’s adoption fee is $250 which includes spay surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
