Charlie is a loving, lovely female who was found stray. A good Samaritan family took her in and tried to find her former owner. After 6 weeks, they surrendered her to ABR. She may be a high Britt mix, perhaps having a bit of Setter blood. Charlie’s sweet loving spirit is matched with remarkable beauty. She weighs 32 pounds but needs to gain at least a few pounds to be at her ideal weight. Her tail is not docked.She is underweight and is being treated for an ear infection. She is negative for heart worm and tick borne illness. She will be spayed this week. She prefers canned food, but will eat dry with the addition of canned food or cottage cheese.She has many things to learn about being a member of a family. She naturally excels at being a loving companion, and is doing well with house training and learning other manners such as not jumping up on people or stealing food. Please understand that these lessons are a work in progress and the adoptive family will need to continue the training and reinforcement. She has done remarkably well with potty training but is currently in the close supervision mode. Basic commands are also a work in progress.Passionate about loving on humans and catching squirrels, she is living life to the fullest. A champion cuddler, she enjoys much attention from humans. We are working on not jumping on people, and she is responding well but occasionally forgets herself. The highly dog experienced cats in the home are terrified of this girl. She spends much of her time watching for squirrels whether she is inside or outside. She does bark at squirrels and cats.She has some anxiety that comes and goes. Adaptil and a thundershirt have been beneficial. Occasionally, she needs to be carried in or out of the house, or out of the car. She needs restraint in the car.So far she doesn’t play with toys, but has shown an interest in squeak toys. Occasionally she is playful with the Brittany in the house.She accepts the crate and keeps it clean. I am certain she could jump a four foot fence if she saw some prey.This girl is a joy but needs someone to commit to training. She is a quick learner and is easy to please and I believe that she will make a fabulous family member for the family that is able to work with her and train her to be a great house dog.PLEASE NO SIGHT UNSEEN ADOPTIONS FOR MISS CHARLIE. Given her stress of new situations, it is important that all family members (human and canine) meet to assure we have a good fit.
