Charlie is an energetic boy who loves his people and is a sweet gentleman in the house. His owners have made the difficult decision to find Charlie a new home as he is one of two brothers and they are finding the two dogs, as a team, to be too much. We think that Charlie would be happiest as an only dog. He currently lives in a home with cats. Charlie can be assertive when meeting others dogs, but would benefit greatly from a good long walk or run each day. He needs someone who will appreciate his zeal for exercise but also be structured in his training.
Charlie has no issues with sharing his toys or food with his humans and looks forward to his treat of a piece of apple each night. He is an alert boy who will bark to let you know someone is coming but settles once you are aware. He is also crate trained and can be left alone for short periods. He has not had the opportunity to interact with children.
Charlie has had some professional training but needs more reinforcement. He demonstrates the intelligence of his breed and will excel in his obedience if put through the eight classes included in his adoption fee. We would like to see Charlie with an active person, perhaps a jogger or hiker, and someone who can engage him mentally.
