Biography

Charlie is now fully vaccinated and has been making huge strides in his demeanor and training. This is the hardest decision I have ever had to make. I adopted Charley from a small dog pound in Highland Indiana about ten days ago. He was picked up as a stray and had been in their pound for over 30 days. They do not tend to be very aggressive about getting the dogs adopted out and mainly just send the dogs to the local humane society after their stray hold. The Humane society they deal with has been full and unable to accept new dogs most of the time lately. He is a high energy dog just over twenty pounds that needs a lot of exercise. I thought he was a little older when I agreed to take him and was surprised with his energy and drive. The wife and I are in our late 60s'/early 70s and he is a bit much for us. We are physically unable to give him the exercise he needs to flourish. If I were younger, I would not consider rehoming him because he is going to be an absolutely great dog. He seems to be a year old at the most. He would do best with someone that has a medium sized dog he could play with to burn off all that excess energy. He stalks my little Shitsu constantly and he would do best in a home without small dogs or cats. Though I have not had him near cats I would be surprised if he was calm around them. He is quick to learn and knows several commands already but has a difficulty staying focused at times. I have not had him around small children but would recommend against a home with younger kids. He would probably be fine with older children and teens. It breaks my heart to make this difficult decision, but it would be best for him to have more active owners and a similar size dog buddy to play with. He has shown no aggression towards other dogs or people at all but is insistent on playing whether they want to or not. Due to his young age and the fact he is neutered I would assume he is vaccinated also. He is a lovable sweetheart after he has tired himself out.
